Does this image look familiar?
It should because it was the start of an idea I had last year to re connect with people. It then turned into a blog post entitled I LIED.
So,here I am again, Mid December and no Christmas letters have gone out...
and, truthfully, no guilt either. I have only planned to send one card this year. Yep, set your expectations so they are achievable... Hopefully, that goal gets a big check mark before the week is up.
I want to connect.
From last year's post I had great conversations with folks in person and virtually through FaceTime. What a pleasure it was speaking to people who I am connected to but had not CONNECTED WITH in awhile! We lunched. We sipped drinks in coffee shops. We lunched... We spoke over FaceTime and virtually sipped as well!
My goal for 2018 - to use social media to be ‘social able’. Again.
It still amazes me how it can be months before I talk with certain people and sometimes more!
It usually goes something like this...
" Omg, I haven't seen you in so long.."
"I know, we really should get together!"
"But I SEE ON SOCIAL MEDIA that you did this and that and went here and there."
"Yes, and you did that thing and the other thing."
Well, we really should do something and catch up FOR REAL."
"Yes, we should, okay I'll call you..."
"yeah, lets do something."
"okay. for sure."
and....nada. zilch. nothing. zero.
So here goes…
If you live in the fine City I do, lets have coffee, or a walk or maybe even lunch.
We pick a date and put it on the calendar, even if its months in advance.
If there is physical distance between us, we can Facetime, Zoom, or use another method of video conversation…I will drink tea on my end and you can have a coffee if you like.
I'm looking for a few people who want to get back to being sociable.
It’s that time of year!
Time to open your hearts and your wallets to support a GREAT grassroots cause!
Come out to a JOGA session on December 20th in support of Be The Reason!
All proceeds from the evening will go directly to the charity and you pay what you want to donate!
This summer I put out a call looking to help a charity that met a certain criteria...
They had to be completely volunteer-based and all proceeds were to stay in our local communities.
It was so nice to be connected with @bethereasonwpg for a couple of reasons....
1. This not for profit charity is so grassroots, it’s literally a ONE PERSON show. A person who, from personal tragedy decided to help those who had once helped her.
2. A charity that receives no outside funding or sponsorship from ANYWHERE.
3. A real live person who spoke to me on the phone and told me their story, not just directing me to a website to donate.
4. A charity that does year round donations that go directly to the underserved.
So come out and sweat a bit!
‘Tis the Season to BE THE REASON 🎁
What exactly is a donation based workout?
Come workout, donate the amount you choose.
Put your monies in the jar, find a spot for your mat and enjoy!
100% of the proceeds will go directly to the charity.
That's the give back part...
