I have been out of the swing of things this past week.
I have unfortunately been to funerals, had a few things I needed to address, and was on my first panel!!!
Being on a panel, commenting on things I love is SO much FUN!!! The Brands and Bloggers Summit 2011 at the Chicago Double Tree Hotel Mag Mile far exceeded my expectations.
Blogging - AS YOU WELL KNOW BY NOW - saved my life.
Expressing myself in a positive light around innovative, incredible people IS my calling!
Not that assisting the criminal element isn't, I have simply given more than I've gotten from it and have certainly had my fill. Serving the community is a blessing, but I am beginning to unfold my new life's path.
I can still help people, but also help myself.
Recently during a clinical massage, my therapist shared that I am one of the worst cases she has seen!
That is not a good thing. Carrying my stress, and that of inner city Chicago, has finally taken its toll.
Having my back be a pillar (literally) FOR society was NOT my intention!
So I am scaling back, getting my roosters ready to crow, and envisioning the day when I can kiss my caseload goodbye!
Brands & Bloggers may not ultimately do that for me but, who knows, it just might! SO much fun and SO incredible, I am certainly assured of my path now and what I enjoy.
I am anticipating my journey into next year!
