A Happy Birthday to me and PRESENTS for you!!! / by Mary Kay Maas

Wow!  What a trip!  The last week or two I have been working my little fanny off to step out and up in a big way.  Truth. I was scared almost everyday.  Truth.  I kept stepping through the fear.  The more I get out there, the more I practice my craft, the more I perform, the more confident I get.  I wasn't sure I was ready for something like Patreon but a little voice inside said, YES you are!  Go for it!  And with the encouragement of my coach Elizabeth Locey and the Story-telling expert, Elizabeth Blue, I gathered together my dream bits and dove in and gave it my all.  The best gift of all that day, my 34th celebration, to my suprise, was the outpouring of love and encouragement that came in response.  My friends and family see me taking risks, putting myself out there and they prop me up when I falter.  Thank you, universe for the best b-day yet!  This is going to be one heck of a year!
