There are places in my life where I wish I could return briefly because I felt so appreciated. You know those superstar points in your life, when you are surrounded by people who can truly see you, like the real kind of seeing, and then communicate their appreciation or what they love about you? Well, I don't know about you, but sometimes I think this being a full-fledged adult thing really kills the fan club.
So I've decided to become the fan club for other people, because well, I can't be in this boat alone. In the past few weeks I've had the completely onerous task of writing thank you notes for the people who attended Giovanna's baby shower. When I first looked at the list, it seemed endless: I was so grateful for everyone's generosity, but the idea of writing individual thank you cards to every single person was frankly wreaking havoc on my resolve to send them out before Giovanna is born. That was until it dawned on me that I had a really amazing chance to tell a good number of people what I love about them individually and how they add to my life. The task is still endless, but with the new element of appreciating and labeling the amazing qualities and attributes of my friends, I have started to love writing the cards.
Vote me for President of your fan club!
