Love Bomb

Enjoy the holiday season!

Published 6 months ago • 1 min read

Today (Monday night as I write this) is Christmas Day, and next week around this time is New Year's Day, so I'm taking the time off from love bombs. After that it'll be the end of the holiday season, and into the teeth of the long, cold winter. God willing we'll all see it through to the other side together :)

It's been another weird year for me, full of stops and starts and big personal/career changes and more than a little stress. The kinds of things most people go through every five years or so, I seem to go through a couple a year. But I suppose I wouldn't trade it, because it's made me who I am today, and I like who I am today. So we keep soldiering on, yeah? If you're in a tough situation in life, please know that you're not alone. There are people who love you, and your life has incredible value <3

If you feel like responding with an end-of-year message of your own, I'll be happy to read the updates in lieu of Christmas cards or cookies left on my doorstep, haha - if not, I hope you enjoy your holidays, and we'll talk again soon!


PS: I think this is only the second time in 100 years that we haven't had any snow in Milwaukee during December - it's felt so strange to have the whole holiday season feel like fall instead of winter. I did take a foggy picture from my balcony on Christmas Eve, and on my Christmas Day walk this morning, I saw that someone had decorated their baby fir tree for a Charlie Brown Christmas. It made me smile.

Every Tuesday I come up with an idea to make a difference for someone in a small, personal, creative way, then I send out that idea as a mission assignment to everyone in our group. Over the next week, we all spend 10 minutes to accomplish it in our own way for people in our own lives.

Morning, friends! I was doing the Love Bomb thing during the latter half of 2023, and then I took a break for the Christmas holiday but never came back. I ended up having to deal with a few issues at once (and still am, actually): loss of a job, some personal health stuff, some family things, etc. I'm still in a place where I need to take care of myself and focus on bigger things, so I'm going to do that. Love Bomb will be on indefinite hiatus for the time being. I appreciate you all being a...

From the Beginning The Background I just got back from taking a walk with my brother during a break in my work. It was a nice piece of downtime during this very busy month where I'm transitioning myself into a new (much more fun and creative) career as an AI developer. It made me realize that he's been there through all of my twists and turns, ups and downs, and personal growth over the years, and I'm thankful for him. The Mission This week, spend 10 minutes to acknowledge someone who was...

Reconnect With An Old Friend The Background This month I'm pivoting my career a little bit, going from a boring old marketing director to a freelance creator again - something I've really missed in my life. This time, instead of building new things on the social web, I'm becoming an AI developer, with a specialty in new forms of storytelling with all the new tools and possibilities open to us. I'm also re-opening my personal email list, which has been dormant for 8 years. It's going to be...
