a facebook friend sent the following message to me and a few others. i was terrifically flattered and also very humbled. i have never met this facebook friend but i am looking forward to getting a phone call in the next couple of weeks!
Hi everyone, (Warning: personal sharing to follow. Proceed at your own risk.) 🙂 As you may or may not know I freelance/consult from my home office. Thankfully, this year has been very busy. That includes everyday including most weekends. This past month I put in 30-40 hour weeks working at McDonald’s corporate headquarters while handing my own clients on nights and weekends. The McDonald’s gig is now complete and I see open space in my calendar. Why this info? I feel stuck. I’ve concentrated so much on work that I’ve left my friendships by the wayside. I haven’t actively been pursuing any lunches or coffees etc. Also, After 3 months of walking 3 times a day, I’ve now gone 3 weeks without any form of exercise. Just sitting here and doing nothing isn’t working 🙂 So it’s time to act. I’ve been inspired by a Facebook friend whom I have never met but heard about on the radio and have since been following her Facebook accounts and blogs. She suffers from agoraphobia and decided to visit all her Facebook friends around the world in person. Her name is Arlynn Leiber Presser if your interested in reading about her. She has inspired me to action because she stepped right through her fears and phobias and did it and continues to do it. Reading her blog I think I’m at home now more then she is. 🙂 So why am I writing this? To face a fear of mine? Picking up the phone and calling someone to plan something hasn’t been my style. I’ve always waited for others to get the ball rollling. Waited to the last minute. Going to the cave is great but it gets old after awhile. Well you know what? I’m getting to old for this shit! I’m not putting this out there to fish for calls. I’m am putting it out to the universe and to my friends and just to let you know I will be calling! 🙂 Peace and love, Mr. T
mr. t, you have my phone number!

See! You really are amazing… 😀 You definitely have inspired many of us to reach a goal, to grasp past our fears, and to hold onto something more important. 😀
Thank you for sharing. 😀

The definition of courage isn’t being unafraid. It’s proceeding forward even though you are afraid. You are courageous and an inspiration to us all, Arlynn! Thank you! xoxo
