Miscellaneous Monday - The Attitude of Gratitude

It's nearing the end of the year and I feel like I've experienced an immense amount of personal and professional growth. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for an amazing group of peers in this industry who push me to always do my best.

Our little communi-team family does such a wonderful job of encouraging each other and I want to take a moment to give shout outs and say a few nice things about each of them. (More popcorn speeches @Stephanie Grice) -

Read on below and then comment with some shout-outs of your own. 

#lovefest2019 #wearethebestcommunity

@Erica Moss: I've said it before and I'll say it again - you rock. I think you do a wonderful job of outreach and support from a Champion perspective and I continue to see you do amazing things every day (which includes mad photography skills). You contribute so much to this little slice of the internet.

@Monique vdB: INVALUABLE member of this community and the reason that we get to earn sweet badges every month. If I have questions, you go above and beyond to connect me with the person that has the answers. You're so willing to jump in and support anyone who needs it - and that is so admirable. 

@Scott Theus@Jack Brickey@Fadoua@Thomas Schlegel@miikhy@Manon Soubies-Camy@Jodi LeBlancand holycow so many other people in the champion program who I can't even tag because tags are weird-  I am SO lucky to have you all as a resource for bouncing ideas back and forth, sending dumb GIFs, and enabling each other's nerdy tendencies. You are all why this community is one of the best around and I feel like we will continue to do amazing things in 2019. 

See you all in VEGAS for selfies - happy new year!!

Oh wow thanks @Meg Holbrook! I do agree with every single word you typed. The two fairy tales are irreplaceable.

Each champion is unique. I love how we all treat each other. It feels to me like I knew all of you for a long time.

All the best

I'm not as involved on the community as most of you, but I see the genuine care people bring to helping others (whether thats by answering an easy questions about Confluence, a tricky one about Jira, or sharing where to grab a good drink in your part of the world) and it makes me so happy!

Thank you for the kind shout out @Meg Holbrook and @Jack Brickey! I could not be more thrilled to be a part of this amazing communi-team. One of my 2019 goals is not to be so silent on the community (watch what you wish for 😉 )... Also, thank you for the visual@Jack Brickey! It is great motivation. 2019 here we come!

Love this post so much @Meg Holbrook - thank for including me :) I feel the same about you and our other fellow champions, as well as Erica and Monique - what an amazing group. Although we haven't all met each other in-person it is a strong virtual bond via this community. Can't wait to finally see you all in Vegas! Fingers crossed :)

I'm also looking forward to Las Vegas to meet some of the people that go with the familiar avatars and names from this Community.
