What If You Weren't There?

It usually come from out of the clear blue.

I get out of bed in the morning focused on what lies ahead. Blogs to be written, clients to talk to, networking events, joint ventures, social media marketing..........

Gotta fit a trip to the gym in there somehow, right?

Gotta look and feel your best.

Like I said; It usually comes out of nowhere, sorta like the pop-up thunderstorm that grabs your attention with its first clap of thunder.

It's can be an email, a private message, a quick blog comment thanking you for being an anchor, for sharing an insight, revealing your own pain and indecision or picking up your pom-pom's and being a cheerleader when it was most needed.

Someone touches my heart when they thank me for helping them through an ordeal or consider me part of a family they do not have because I am always ready with support and help and just being a good friend.

I sorta scratch my head.

"Why isn't this reflected in my algorithms?"

"Why doesn't my page view needle spike?"

"Will this affect my SEO?"

I have never attended a webinar or seminar that's talked about sharing part of myself with other people simply because I believe I have the responsibility to do so.

What if you weren't there?

Oh, I know, you mutter something about how someone else would step in and fill the void. Nope, sorry, you are wrong they wouldn't - They couldn't.

"Where you are is where you should be, right now." 

Someone shared that with me almost 20 years ago. When I poise my hand over the key board, look into the camera and smile to my adoring faithful I  remember...........

"They don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care."

What if you weren't there?

What if I weren't?

Scary thought, hey?

It gets me through the rough patches.
