As you’ve seen, we have a lot of things to say about our community. We’re very humbled to be a part of it. I think we could continue to talk about it for a long time – not much gets us this excited. The 31 Days series has been a great reflection for us on all that we have to be thankful for. Our final reason we love our community is that it’s ours.
In coaching high school soccer I am given the opportunity to see players develop from their first season as a freshman to their last game as a senior. Each brings it’s own challenges and successes. Coaches will say if only we had a player who could do this or if only we had that guy from another team but we don’t really mean it. When it comes down to it, when the season ends, the only team a coach wants is theirs. Just like coaches, the only community we want is ours.
It’s our team.
It’s our community.
My real hope for you is that you have your own community to be a proud of and that our blog is just a resource to make your already awesome community even better. If not, you’re invited to join ours but if you do, own it. It’s yours. Be proud of it. Invest in it. Cultivate it. Write about 31 reasons you love of it.
Day 31 of 31: Why do we love our community? It’s ours.
