Tonight, I mastered the art of procrastination. I have to pack for New York City, my close friend's bachelorette cruise, and Africa.
Oh yeah, my flight's tomorrow morning.
I could blame it on a number of things: guilt for splurging on a designer bikini, refusal to leave the comfortable South, pathological night owl tendencies....
But actually, I can't peel away from the Internet. It's one of those times, especially after the past couple nights. I keep wanting to connect with people and it's definitely because I've been able to get in touch with so many incredible individuals lately. There are the sweet, sincere Facebook messages and e-mails from complete strangers that have sent me into tears. Then, there was this week...
I've been able to meet avid readers and writers who have shown nothing but support for one another. It's something I've always seen in the blogging world and now have had the chance to experience in person. Writers and readers just may be some of the most openly encouraging souls out there.
The thing is, kind words feed off of one another. Hearing something supportive from one person makes you want to uplift another. So the cycles goes on and on, and we all continue to thrive.
