The Scottsdale Canal Convergence is an annual event that takes place along the Scottsdale Canal. I actually had a long day and wasn’t feeling very festive, but I had created this event for our We Click Phoenix Meetup. Sometimes it’s a hard lesson to learn where you stand in someone’s life, but you can’t allow yourself to linger and need to make the best of a situation. I decided I wasn’t going to let my group down because I was having an off day and I’m glad that I didn’t. Even if only 2 new group members showed up I experienced some beautiful art installations along the river, witnessed some inspiring dancers, and met 2 new people. Lesson learned if I had sat at home wallowing in self pity I would not have experienced any of this. Sometimes no matter how hard it is you just need to pull yourself up by your bootstraps, get out, and experience life!
