I re-read my last post and thought it sounded rather negative — I've been working a bit too hard lately. The balance has been off but I'm working, with the help of my wonderful BPS team to make adjustments so I can focus my efforts on the things that matter most and the projects I most want to be a part of.
Asking you to post comments about America was kind of a fluke (so I could give away the Scenic Route kit) HOWEVER, as I read through your comments about this great nation of ours, I was reminded how powerful words are — especially when they are shared in an effort to express gratitude. Your collective thoughts gave me the chance to tweak my attitude and remember how totally cool it is that I (and you) have the freedom to pursue our passions and start businesses and build communities and learn and grow and contribute and WORK HARD — WOW. Seriously. Wow.
Even if you read just a dozen or so of the comments left over the last two days, you'll see what I mean.

Time flies. Spend five minutes today thinking about last year. Where were you, what did you do and who did you do it with? What will be the same this year and what will be different? Why?
I love that I can be who I am and not have to live in fear of expressing myself.
