Community

I wrote about a year ago about Community.  I strived for a community of my own.  I’ve been following several online communities, I’ve seen what works, what doesn’t.  It’s been such an interesting study.

I’m not ready.  I’ve been sick for 5 weeks, and I’m a bit slow in coming back to the world.  I have not forgotten though.  I haven’t forgotten about the 2 big projects, or all the the amazingness that I have inside me, wanting to be let out to play!  I thank you for your patience.  I couldn’t still be here if it weren’t for each of you!

Twelve days.  Twelve days ago I started having a little tickle in my throat.  The tickle turned into a cough.  Cough turned into a fever, complete congestion, tiredness, exhaustion, and finally, feeling like I simply was not going to make it.

Today is the first day that I have felt human.  The first weekend, I slept for 40 hours straight.  I haven’t been able to blog, I haven’t been able to move forward with my business.  I still went to work, but there were very few days I finished.

I went into survival mode.

I did not thrive.

I felt pitiful.

I was exhausted.

I coughed all night most every night.  I didn’t rest.

But guess what?

Twelve long days later, and I’m back!

During those 12 days, I dreamed, I hoped.  I even did some planning.

No follow through, mind you, because I had nothing to give.  but I survived.

And now?

Now I hope to do more than survive.  I hope to thrive.
