Pics from the Idea Potluck


On Tuesday, I participated in Mac & Cheese Production's Potluck of Ideas. I loved the concept of the night--8 people have 6 minutes to talk about anything they want--and I had no idea what to expect. What I experienced was a postive and warm evening of brilliant and kind people. I went last in the line-up, which was intimidating, but turned out to work perfectly. I spoke off the cuff about the challenges we all face in life, and told the audience the things that we rarely get to hear as adults--that we are great, that we are doing a great job, and that it is ok to admit that things are hard and do what you need to do to take care of yourself. It was very emotional, and I talked with wonderful people afterwards. It was such a loving and safe space and I was able to talk about things that I feel I have to mostly keep inside. All in all, it was an incredible experience.
