What disaster? Well you see last year I had this beautifully gorgeous mother of all recap that I had been working on for 2-3 weeks and then it magically disappeared, gone, never to be seen again! I literally felt sick to my stomach and I almost puked I was so upset! So this is why we aren't going that route again!
I have never in my life met so many amazing people in one setting. Things happen at Fitbloggin that change the course of people lives FOREVER, and one of the most beautiful things about it is that it just happens naturally! It's amazing to be sitting there and hear somebody say something and then notice a light bulb go off across the room in someones head. It amazing to just sit back and watch people connect and share their struggle, failures and realize that they aren't alone!
I have said this before and I will keep saying it, this conference, community, tribe, whatever you want you call it has changed my life. I showed up at this conference 2011 with a fear of not being accepted. I had a hard time looking people in the eye and I just wanted to be there without really being there. This year was the most comfortable I have ever felt, not because past years gave me a reason to be uncomfortable but because I am slowly evolving into who I want to be and that just takes times.
|I wont even lie..... I love having a mic in my hand lol|
Fitbloggin 2014 is over but the magic that it creates NEVER stops. My challenge to all of you is to privately reach out to at least 3 people from the conference who in some way made an impression on you. I do this every year because I feel it's important to let people know how they made you feel. You never know what someone is going through and hearing something like that can also help them. No need to share with us who they are or why you chose them (unless you really want to).
Thank you all for letting me be a part of your lives. I will forever pay it forward as best I can.
