There were so many times, I was tempted to call my Board of Directors and say, I am sorry but I think I need to take the rest of the month of. But sometimes the hardest things that we have to do becomes the most rewarding. Despite all the hiccups and issues, the workshop ended up being the highlight of my month.
I met so many amazing people as a result of my work on it, from an amazing volunteer to new connections at the workshop. I also realized that committing to a task did not mean doing it alone, and for the first time in a long time, asked for help and received so much support. I reconnected with a few 'lost' connections.
The success of the workshop made me feel like October was not a complete wash, and sometimes you just need a great ending to move you past a forgettable opening number :)
