I’m coming home. I know my kingdom awaits, and they’ve forgiven my mistakes. Tell the world I’m coming home.

Maybe home isn’t a place. I keep looking for it like it’s my Neverland, my Narnia, my Hogwarts, or Deadwood, but maybe what I’m looking for is so much more. Maybe it’s right here. Or there. Or somewhere inside of me that’s so much more.

I say so much of life isn’t personal, and you say all of life is. Maybe we’re both right. There is no risk if you’re honest. The only risk is in not taking risks, but if we’re honest with ourselves there are no risks at all.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? I’d go home. Part of me says Deadwood because in the short time I was there I felt more at home than I have in so many lives. But it’s more than that. I don’t want to sit still. I don’t want to stay here. I don’t want to stay anywhere. I want roots, sure, and I have them now. But I want someone to share those roots with and someone who will go see the far corners of this earth with me, too. While still always coming home. Wherever that may be, because home is right here with me.

I love this. All of it. I am back out in my element networking to the point of exhaustion in all the best ways, already planning the next trip, the next conference, the next expo and I can’t wait. It’s okay it’s in Vegas even if it’s not my favorite place because it still means I am back doing what I love and what I’m good at – connecting great brands with great people. Though if we’re being honest, it’s so much more than that too.

I don’t know what’s going on this week. Good things. Bad things. Death. Life. It’s always something, but that is life, right? The ups and downs we can’t control. What we can control is what we make of them, and I am so grateful to be going through all of this with some pretty incredible people. Thank you, all of you.

What now? We go home.
