Connections, people, hello world Amanda Palmer style!

I saw this talk by Amanda Palmer on TED the other day and it brought me to tears.

Why? Well because she reaches out to people. She believes in the humanity of others and puts out so much positivity that I think it comes back to her tenfold. The art of asking, from are you ok to does anyone have a place for me to stay. She’s inspiring.

And I am procrastinating about my exam tomorrow.

So have a look at what she says, let it sit with you and don’t forget your tissues.

      I know TimTam, I also might have pre-ordered one.

      I think I have a huge crush on her. She’s amazing and so inspiring!

      She makes me want to do things outside the box and that’s always a good thing.

      Maybe we can have gushies over tea and her book once we have it in our hot lil hands πŸ˜€

    Wait! I’ve gotta tell you… I was up til 6th working on my blogs. I decided to reactivate my other one candidly about the journey music. I’ve seriously debated for ages whether or not to write about the first time I’d pawned jewelry to pay bills.

    This video has inspired me to just let it all hang out. The good, the bad and the ugly. Let the chips fall where they may. I probably look like a crazy lady, but maybe I’ll meet some crazy people out there. It hasn’t been a pride thing as much as not wanting to be a drag and fearing my candor may bite me in the end. You’re a pretty great dame, Sharn!

      Wow, that’s amazing that you would put it out there.

      You know I think if more of us reached out and just let it hang we’d be a huge network of amazingly supported and strong people.

      Which I think is why I love blogging so much. Because what you put out comes back to you. I’ve met some amazing people, yourself included πŸ™‚

      We are all crazy in our own ways Julie. I think that’s what makes people sparkle!

      And thank you πŸ™‚
