*This is not negative, or down. This is a moment of gratitude.* I have never spent so much time alone as I have this season. My first road series was nerve wracking and a little depressing. I stayed in my room and dwelled on the solidarity. This series I took myself to the beach, worked on the next Bob Goff book and did a lot of solo exploring. I’ve become so much more comfortable in my own skin, my faith and my understanding of who I want to be. I’ve taken the time to converse with strangers, share a smile and embrace every new town and city. I’ve never had more personal growth than this year, and I’m overwhelmingly happy about that. Don’t get me wrong, there’s staff in nearly every city I love and get to spend time with and some staff activities with our own team, but there’s a beauty in the space created between you and yourself to be cherished.
