Last night, I had an experience that I would have never dreamed possible one year ago.

Three members of this Escaping Mediocrity Tribe created something amazing for me in Atlanta.

Several months ago, Judi Knight conceived of hosting an event at her super-cool B & B and I would be the featured guest speaker. Then she enlisted Dana Reeves and Brandon Sutton as co-conspirators for her mission.

Together, they organized, cooked, invited friends – and basically threw their hearts and souls into ensuring that the event ROCKED. And it did.

Sixty people showed up, listened to killer music, ate fab food, mixed, mingled, laughed and talked. Oh – and they got to listen to me speak for a little while too. 🙂

During my two and a half hour drive home (I drove back to Birmingham when the event) last night, I got a little teary as I started thinking about everything they did:

1) They spent their VERY valuable time planning and executing the event.

2) They put other priorities aside and cooked a TON of food.

3) They went out on a limb and invited friends to come hear me speak. To me that is the ultimate compliment and I can only hope that I did them proud.

I am touched beyond measure at the belief and support they gave me last night – and give me every single day.

So today, I say “Thank You.” Thank you for being the reasons I do what I do. Thank you for making me better and smarter. Thank you for opening your hearts and sharing your friends with me. Thank you for all the time, energy and love you put into making last night a success. Thank you for being a part of my tribe. I am an incredibly lucky woman.
