Alt Summit, Now What?

January 26, 2016


Erin Schrader

Now that I am settling back into reality after a few incredible days at Alt Summit in Salt Lake City I’m feeling the following ways:
1. Full – mentally and emotionally but mostly physically #eatingproblems
2. Tired yet energized
3. Inspired but overwhelmed
4. Confident yet frustrated
5. Alone but so very connected
As you can see, I’m all over the place. Any time I connect with others in this online space it fills my cup up in the best way possible but leaves a yearning for more. I’m in this awkward stage of holding on to everything I just experienced but stuck on where to go from here. I was able to hear some of the most amazing women speak [Sarah Michelle Gellar, Meg Keene, Jasmine Star, Jihan Zencirli and Elle Luna just to name a few] and walked away with SO much valuable information, new friends and plenty of ideas but here I am. Sitting in my office, just me and my dog, music playing staring at a blank computer screen thinking “well, crap. what now?”
My goal is to stop settling for average. Knowing that these people who spoke in front of me, they were once where I was yet they not only believed in bigger things but they made them happen as well. Sometimes I struggle with that whole doing thing and it turns out that’s somewhat of an important piece to the puzzle. While I am so fortunate to have this space not only as a hobby but a business as well, there is so much more to be had, experienced, learned, etc. I realize it’s a journey and not an overnight thing but these past few days, they provided me the thirst for the adventure.
Cheers to whatever the heck it is I will be doing next, but for now – this is good enough and I will count every single blessing [talking about you, you and you] who allow me to do this crazy thing.
And now, for pictures. More to come I’m sure  😉

Obviously I had no fun at all, like at all. Until next year….

While the CDC may be recommending social distancing [thanks, Coronavirus], the calendar isn’t paying attention, and holidays aren’t changing their dates! I’m talking Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Graduations. Whether we’re going to be celebrating them in person or taking advantage of technology to see one another, it’s still a time to celebrate those we […]
