A long exhale. A back rub. A much needed hug. That is precisely how this Creative Clubhouse lunch felt. So many of us are hunched over computers or toiling away alone that we so often forget how restorative it can be to get together. I am so utterly guilty of this, and regrettably I've suffered for it. Now this introvert is seeing the value in saying "yes." Regardless of how genuine your social media presence may be, there is still a certain measure of putting one's best foot forward. When we gather we can talk about our struggles, laugh through the trials and tribulations of our stressful entrepreneurial efforts, and hold each other up in all of our imperfect glory. It's about acceptance. It's about accountability. It's about real live friendships.
