So I made some big asks. And I got some big beautiful yeses.

I’m still hoping it might go live one day in the future and surprise us all, but in the meantime, I’ve commandeered X! X is for eXcited for many, many reasons today:

All We Have Is Now

“All we have is now. If it doesn’t drive you, or delight you, stop doing it right now, and start doing something you love. If there’s someone who inspires you, let them know. If there’s someone you love, tell ’em. You have absolutely NO time to waste.” -Birdie of Bonne Vie
