When I came up with my Skypy Sunday idea, I honestly thought ”this is not going to work!”
But I am a little stubborn, and I wanted it to work, so I kept it on The Cove’s schedule for a third week, and boy, am I happy I did! At 6 pm Eastern Time, I sat in my bedroom, prepared my tablet and headset, and I activated our virtual conference room.
There were some minor adjusments at first, but within a couple of minutes, there were four of us connected, and the chit-chat started, pretty naturally.
I am sure we were all stepping out of our comfort zone. It is not a natural thing to start a conversation with someone we have never met in person. Imagine stepping in a room, not knowing how many people would join in, who these people would be, and if you’ll have anything in common with everybody? That’s kind of scary…
It was amazing! I will not go through what we talked about… What happens during Skypy Sunday, stays in the Skype room. But I can tell you that I cried of laughter, and I learnt a lot from the three lovely ladies that shared the conversation with me.
Although this could have been a tad chaotic, it wasn’t at all. Each participant got to lead the conversation for a while, sharing thoughts and stories about their lives or where they came from…
Time flew quickly, and we put an end to the call 1h40 after its beginning, but not before agreeing to do this again!!
And there will definately be a fourth Skypy Sunday, now. This was just too much fun to drop the idea.
I want to thank the three amazing women who participated to tonight’s chat… You Ladies are awesome, and I had a great time and I hope to talk to you all again next weekend!
Just a little note to Larry Hoke… I am sorry you couldn’t join us in the end, Larry. Next week, I’ll activate the virtual room earlier, and I’ll do my best so you can participate. If you are still interested, of course 😉
