I feel like the last few weeks have been a whirlwind. An exciting, inspiring, motivating whirlwind. So first thing’s first, I was able to attend the AWS Conference in NYC. It was a space that I had never been in before. Legitimate tech people, doing and presenting legitimate tech things. I’m still struggling through AWS basics, so being in a space full of AWS experts was pretty daunting.
The most interesting aspect of the conference for me was the Game Day experience. It was a big ole learning and stress trigger all rolled into one. I had no idea what I was doing most of the day, but it was great to see the AWS services being used in a ‘real world’ scenario. I left the experience with a better grasp of how the services function and now the practice labs make a lot more sense to me.
It was an overall amazing experience and I came away from it with way more confidence and a lot of awesome tech swag.
I was then hashtag blessed the following week with a trip to Martha’s Vineyard. MV is just one of those place that speak to my soul. I was able to get to one of my favorite spots on the island, the cliffs at Aquinnah.
Along with views that will make you weep, there are cute little shops up there and an amazing little seafood spot. I was able to get me an ice tea and just soak up all the wonder around me.
Sitting in this spot, I was able to breath in God’s work and let go of all the stresses and insecurities that can sometime burden me. I was able to be present and grateful in the moment and raise my vibration all the way up.
