This Must Be What It Feels Like To Want To Come Out Of The Closet

Walking back to the car after lunch at Disney’s Grand Floridan Resort, near Magic Kingdom.

Social media policies are changing, growing, evolving – getting more practical. This is great news for early adopters to blogging, You Tube, LinkedIn, Twitter and other social media marketing tools.

Nearing my 4,000th blog post, there is this (almost burning) desire after two years of daily blogging – a desire to come out of the closet and reveal a part of my identity.

And On The 7th Day He….

On the seventh day he rested?

Nope.  He floated.

I spent last week at one of Florida’s best beaches, Sanibel Island.  It was the polar opposite of wearing business suits and standing in front of hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of business professionals, delivering keynote speeches.

In between the Writer’s Retreat I was attending, while my Family relaxed, I had opportunities to join them.

Float.  Swim.  Shell.  Sun.  Shade.  Relax.

It’s no different really than when business professionals visit world-class convention destinations like The Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland, or any of the other great Disney Destinations.

Most business professionals attend programs during the day, and also find time to enjoy some things with their family or friends.

And remember the other day I wrote a post, “Where was Obama”? Do you recall the point I was trying to make? Well, it’s the same point here.

By design, I’ve just shared a small glimpse of jungle jeff you haven’t heard about before.

People ask me all the time, “Where do Central Floridians go to get away”?

The intent here is simply having you see me as regular person, who does the same things everyone else does.  It works for the President.  Maybe it’ll work for me.

Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂
