Day 382 - Jacqueline Unplugged & A Heartfelt Thank You to Those Who Stop by to Hang Out on Facebook Page:

Jacqueline Unplugged & A Heartfelt Thank You to Those Who Stop by to Hang Out on My Page:

I've been in a very creative space the last few weeks. More than usual. Here’s the deal. I LOVE teaching comedy improv. Recently, it really occurred to me that I also want to be writing and performing more. Along with teaching. I’m trying to be really honest with myself as to where I see the next level and growth that I feel in my heart of hearts I’m ready for. Perhaps all these loves can be more clearly intertwined . Or not. I dream that my work will continue to take me to beautiful places. Places that already have my heart and new destinations that feed my soul. I want to continue to work with people I trust, respect and have empathy for and continue to create new partnerships that would also be mutually rewarding and profound. I’ve made a commitment to myself to run with. Trust it. Surrender to knowing the highest good will prevail. It’s challenging to be vulnerable. And vulnerable on Facebook. Right? But I have to admit that it's been pretty liberating. People are like candy to me so I thank you for engaging in these update threads. It’s great. Really wonderful. I extend my gratitude as you all have been inspiring, wise and hilarious. Often all 3. It’s amazing to see exchanges that Facebook allows us to facilitate. Yes, this website can be an “addictive time waster” … but I also see it as a remarkably effective platform that gently connects people who would not cross paths otherwise. Like when your high school friend starts shooting the shit with your drug dealer on a thread. That’s heartwarming. Connecting. That's what it’s all about. Who cares that it's on Facebook. It’s happening. I’m learning that this virtual community can be an amazing first step to connect and build very fulfilling friendships and communities in the non virtual world. It already seems to be happening seamlessly. But it takes commitment. And heart. Thanks for the kindness, the honesty, the authenticity and the fun. There’s a really “We’re all in this together” vibe evolving. I say let’s keep going. I try very hard to be an optimist. When I was 7, I won the biggest trophy on the swim team for having the best attitude. Still have it. But one of the arms broke off the silver bald swimmer. Now it’s creepy. But poignant creepy. xoxo Jax
