Stepping outside of my comfort zone

  1. *sigh*

    DOUBLE SIGH.

    Extra sigh on the side for The Cup.

    See you in July, my friend!

  2. Amy, it was wonderful seeing you again.

    While I may seem the extrovert (at times), I can also empathize with your feelings of anxiety. I have to do a lot of deep breathing before going into large-group situations because it’s very easy for me to be overwhelmed by all the energy. In fact, the meetup on Saturday reminded me that I need to rest up before BlogHer because I’m going to be completely exhausted when it’s over.

    Let me know if I can be of any help when we’re in Chicago. :)

  3. awwww! you are adorable, Amy! I’m so glad that you were able to go. I have a very hard time leaving the house, too…not so much from anxiety, but from body image issues. It has been hard to be the “curvy” girl in a world full of what seem to be tiny people. I know it is my perception, so I make myself go and usually enjoy myself as long as I am not confronted with mirrors. Working on it everyday helps…you’ve come a long way in a few months :)

  4. Aughhh, I wanted to go! I want to go to Blogher, too. Maybe if I start saving all my pennies now, I can make it to next year’s conference!!

  5. I didn’t officially meet you but I was glad I attended as well! I decided last minute to make the drive from Denver, it was so nice to meet local bloggers and now find everyone’s blogs and twitter feeds. Thanks for posting this, it was a great meet up and fun to keep hearing everyone’s positive experiences.

  6. I had NO idea you were as nervous as I was.

    That’s an awesome BlogHer button.

  7. It was a great experience and a nice warm-up for the real deal next month!

  8. I was pretty terrified to go to my own meetup in Vancouver. I think it’s pretty much terrifying for everyone to step out and meet others like this. Which makes me feel just a little bit better.

  9. I am so very glad you beat the anxiety and stepped out for the pre-blogher meet-up. It was a pleasure meeting you! I am looking forward to staying connected.

  10. You should be very proud of yourself Amy! Recovery is all about steps and you just took a big one!!

  11. You look great, and I would be nervous also. I’m so terribly bummed I can’t go this year. It seems like everyone I wanted to meet is now going… and I bet, my luck, they won’t be there next year!

  12. Amy, it was great to see you at the meetup & it’ll be great to catch up again in Chicago. Reading your blog I get the sense we share a lot of values – I think you’re one of the best green practitioners out here in the blogosphere.
    And…now only two weeks until the conf. See you there! xo, @gwenbell
