Guess who’s back? (DEN) -that was a slim shady reference

You’d think after a roughly three month break from writing these weekly soliloquies that one would have a lot to say. Or at least something interesting, motivational, funny etc? I’ll be honest, I’m a little out of it. I feel like I’m coming out of hibernation. I only know what day it is because I went to NP this morning. My last three months have not cared what day of the week it was or time of the day and so what if I slept until 11 often, stop judging me. I’m telling you this because I want you to know that it feels great and right that you guys were my first intro back into real life (aka “city life” as we mountain folk like to call it lol jk hashtag). This is no joke. Your energy was just what I needed to kick my ass back into gear and remember what real life is like. This morning I groggily asked myself why my alarm went off at 5 am but you all reminded me quickly. Thank you for welcoming me back in (I know I still have some work to do with you, Tim), thank you to the newer members who accepted or pretended to accept my “shrill screams” as you vets so nicely call it, thank you to the vets who told me they missed said shrill screams (for reasons I do not understand) thank you to my bad ass co-leaders for keeping this ship going strong. In reality, this break was a test to see what would happen if two boys were left in charge. Lastly, thank you to the collective tribe for appreciating what this community represents and understand the meaning of just showing up. Your effort to be positive and proactive is changing this world a little bit each day. This is turning into an acceptance speech so I feel I must retire for my mid morning nap now. I have a three week plan to phase out my 5-11 daily naps. I will let you know how it goes.

Congrats to our resident photographer on the well earned positivity award and congrats to the 5:30 club for being the biggest EVER today. #history
