You Go As Far As Your Team

Emails, meetings, creative endeavors and finally today we got to see our plans play out in real life. Today was our community escape room we called City Quest. I was keeping focused all morning, staying cool but it’s when things started happening that I started to get emotional. In the beginning of all this even before the planning, I was sure what I wanted to do. Then near the end I got a little unsure but the team kept my chin up! And I’m so glad they did. They aren’t kidding when they say,

You go as far as your team.

Since the beginning we all had to (re)learn the importance of patience, commitment, trust, adaptation, leadership and so much more. We can do it. Don’t ever let them tell you anything different! They told me I wouldn’t be able to make our Organization so community based that the community would be part of getting our 501c3. They told me I couldn’t get a Fiscal Sponsor, and they told me there was no point to having an Escape Room. We did it all! And today a little girl told me her most favorite part was the treasure chest!! A treasure chest!! I used my vintage trunk for the escape room and it was more magical to her than it was to me. That magic right there will make every event we plan worth it. All the people who participated lit up my life by showing up and having fun for the sake of fun.

So to summarize, here’s 6 things I learned from City Quest

Let things start happening and find joy there.
Trust your team
Let yourself grow through it!
Don’t listen to the naysayers
Embrace the magic that the little ones around you bring
And always have fun!!

I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
