Here comes the "SUN"...

here comes the sun.png

Ola peeps - Happy SUNday to you all! – It is indeed a Sunday of a new kind for a couple of reasons lol, the more obvious being all the excitement on the Steem blockchain in the last 24 hours and the other for my own personal reasons… and I would like to touch on both…

Firstly – on a personal front...

...it has been an exhausting and eye-opening few days. I sort of “forced” my own discharge from the hospital yesterday (as Jayne does lol)… I just could not stand to spend another day in that place. Don’t get me wrong, I am incredibly grateful for the care and attention I was given, but damn… hospitals are so bloody depressing and I just felt SO grubby, my OCD self could not handle it anymore lol!. So, yes… I am back home but still without any real clarity as to what has been causing all the blood loss. They have some ideas – none of which are particularly positive, but here’s just hoping that the results don’t prove to be of the worst scenario. I should know more this week – hopefully… and until then, it is simply a case of medicating to alleviate the symptoms and taking it as easy as I can.

I pretty much slept for the entire day after returning from the hospital yesterday and I have not had a chance to get back to any of you amazing people that sent me all your messages of love, concern and much needed humour on my post the other day, so I will be spending the day with my rear end planted on my bed today so that I can respond to all of you… please just bear with me as I am operating a little slower than usual lol… but until I manage to get to all of you… let me just say…


@blewitt, @davidesimoncini, @bluemist, @bdmillergallery, @felt.buzz, @abitcoinskeptic, @tarazkp, @manorvileemike, @prydefoltz, @jdkennedy, @goldendawne, @hafizullah, @meesterboom, @zord189, @dfinney, @zeleiracordero, @fullcoverbetting, @ireenchew, @artemislives, @redheadpei, @freedomtowrite, @old-guy-photos, @abh12345, @soyunasantacruz, @joanstewart, @dexpartacus, @rodrook, @manoldonchev, @idig, @hlezama, @awgbibb, @papilloncharity, @blueeyes8960, @roleerob, @galenkp, @foxkoit, @ladybug146, @jayna, @anneke, @wonderwop, @denmarkguy, @porters, @janton, @enginewitty.

Thank you all so very much! Being stuck in a hospital (especially on Valentine’s day) with so much uncertainty was not exactly something that I would rank as “the coolest of moments” in my life lol… so hearing from all of you really, REALLY lifted my spirits and being that I was essentially sleep deprived the entire time because of all the surrounding activity it was the one time that I was truly grateful that I am connected to people from so many different time zones, because I never felt “alone”, not even for a second! I have actually been living with the symptoms of this “issue” for quite some time now… constantly fobbing it off and writing it off as nothing, but eventually it got the better of me.

I say “Here comes the SUN” as the title of this post for two reasons… because whilst there is the possibility that the biopsy results may hold life changing news, there is also the possibility that it is nothing serious. Either way… I will have CLARITY and that is always a better way in which to walk forwards! But enough about that…

......

The other reason for title choice is pretty obvious I would think…. Lol!

There was a lot of “buzz” around our blockchain yesterday with the news hitting the ground that @justinsunsteemit has purchased Steemit. I was not really up to doing much yesterday so the timing was great because I spent my evening chilling on the couch listening to the AMA – which to be frank was more like an AMN (ask me nothing) and then the “witness and general public chat” hosted by @aggroed. As for the AMA, I must say that I think the best part was the liveliness of the comment thread lol – there was no shortage of Steem community presence, passion and opinion. Whilst there was a LOT left unanswered, I do think that the primary concern of a “token swap” was somewhat addressed… which is a monumental relief for all of us… ”for now” lol. And then there was @abh12345’s ”QQQQ: JUSTIN, WILL YOU USE YOUR STAKE TO VOTE ON CONTENT OR FOR WITNESSES?” - which appeared to have caused a furious copy and paste glitch in the comment feed as the community furiously insisted that it be answered lol. Well, it was and again another box of relief checked… for now. The AMA was short and not really to much of any point other than the fact that Ned mostly looked like a deer in headlights and Justin seemed somewhat unprepared for the tidal wave of unity and resoluteness that is the Steem community.

As for the witness and community chat which followed immediately after – I have one word… WOW!!! It was probably the most positively determined and invigorating one I have listened in on EVER! The attendance alone was absolutely insane and I would love to know what the actual numbers were. There was SO MUCH to take away from it all! I resonated very strongly with the opinions of most – but especially that of @aggroed, @crimsonclad, @theycallmedan and a few others that saw both sides of the coin very clearly. It was also fantastic to hear from so many members of the “general Steem public” too. There was a definite unanimity in that “room” last night which was incredibly moving to observe. When we stand in unison like that – we are certainly a force to be reckoned with. – Goosies stuff I tell ya!

In my opinion there are MANY positives that can come from this new chapter - and much like someone said last night, the marketing aspect of Steem is the one piece of our puzzle that has been missing for, well… ever! We have now been granted an instantaneous and “no mickey mouse” solution to that failing facet and it would be imprudent for us not to see and harness the benefits of it. Yes, there are many sides and angles of approach to what has transpired and I do think that each and every single one of them needs to be carefully deliberated and contemplated… but the reality is this – there is not a business person alive on earth (one with any common sense at any rate) that is going to invest in a project or venture with the intention of losing money and having it fail. This is a fact that stands on our side but could also prove to be a double edged sword… what I think is important now is that we ALL walk forward with a positive mindset and attitude, embracing the best of it all whilst being simultaneously vigilant. – and yes… you can function on both levels.

I see it like this: Operating in the realm of business (which this is) you have to accept that tactical play is a part of the game and the fact of the matter is… you simply need to enjoy the intricacy of the footwork as the two sides dance in harmony, whilst simultaneously keeping your ear to the ground, ensuring that you don’t miss a beat and end up flat faced on the floor. If you are consistently prepared and able to remain one step ahead then you can enjoy ALL of it… even the challenging parts – because let’s face it… those are the moments in which we stand to learn the most anyway!

Listening to that witness chat last night, I am beyond confident that as a community, we can and will handle anything that comes our way, so we may as well continue about our business – put efficacy into pending action and enjoy the ride!

❤❤❤

Until next time...
Much Love from Cape Town, South Africa xxx

@jaynie, welcome back!

I heard the news about Tron this morning, so I missed the call. These are exciting times. I love to see the positive vibes on this. It will be interesting to see how the Tron/Steeminc partnership goes.

Thanks @blockurator xxx
and yes... this should prove a VERY interesting unwrapping indeed haha!

Sunday Sunday, glad you're having a Funday!

Thank you @abitcoinskeptic... been a very chilled one! Would kill for a glass of wine... but am too scared to. lol

I agree with you and I think this move with Tron should be benificial to everyone. You take good care and get well soon.

 2 years ago 

I certainly hope so! haha :) and thank you - I appreciate the good wishes xx

In which way it will benefit everyone?

Only time will tell, We just need to keep looking out for new improvements and developments.

I hope they willcome soon especially for mobile users like me who do not have a computer. It's 2020 everyone uses a smartphone but all here is old fashioned. I wish you a great day. 💕

I'm also happy that you get out, and lets see what are sun go make soon in next weeks and months. 😎👌🤗🤗🤗🤗😋 but this fresh blood was needed .

 2 years ago 

Yes I agree - even if it is just to keep us all on our toes and to unify us lol :)

I like how optimistic you are on both counts
Here’s to good outcomes on both counts 💗

Thank you honey - and yes, agreed!

Can you explain the benefits to me.
After Feb. 14 the value of Steem only drops more and more.

A huge group earns hardly or nothing and I read articles Steem (the token) will be useless soon. I try to understand what's going on but find it hard. So far only justin earned good because???

It is good to have you back. I hope they find the reason. I left hospital too, I could not sleep one single night and till today there wasn't found a reason.
I hope you feel better soon. 💕

Thank you for the well wishes @wakeupkitty - much appreciated.

I understand that it can be frustrating when you are looking at thingsfrom a surface level perspective, but there are many things that Justin Sun can bring to the table for Steem - efficient marketing and financial injection being just a couple.

There will be no changes to Steem for the moment, so that is not really a concern at this point.

Keep an eye out for the recording of @aggroed's witness chat yesterday... I think this will answer a lot of your questions and will give you a positive outlook moving forward.

Having only joined your community recently @jaynie, I don't know you that well, but this post provides some idea of your character. I admire your spirit, in the face of adversity, and join many others in hoping your biopsy results are not life changing ...

As for the TRON news, it will be quite a ride over the next little while, no matter which way it goes. We'll all find out soon enough how business savvy a 29-year old is in successfully overcoming all of the hurdles which need to be cleared, for a brighter future moving forward.

I simply asked for clear, consistent communication along the way. The absence or provision of that alone will "speak volumes" ...

All the best to you, on a beautiful (here) Sunday morning 🌄, as you wait for the clarity you seek.

What a lovely thing to say @roleerob, wow! You have left me somewhat speechless... and that, does not happen often! ;) I suppose when you are well worn tyre... you learn how to maneuver yourself despite the lack of tread haha! and yes, I will cross that bridge as and when I get to it.

And yes, as for the whole Tron thing... only time will tell. I agree with you re. the lack of clarity but I think he was caught with his pants down. He had NO idea that the Steem community was going to come at him like a scene from braveheart lol. He back pedaled VERY quickly and "no news" with a sprinkling of glitz and glamour was about as safe as he could play it on such short notice. I am nowhere near trusting his motives but am more than happy for us to capitalise on the investment for as long as that is at our disposal. Trust is earned... and it is VERY early days.

Hope you have a beautiful Sunday too! :)

Hmmm, smiling here. Comparing yourself with a well worn tire @jaynie?! You don't look that old! Hahaha ... 😉

Agreed ...

"I am nowhere near trusting his motives but am more than happy for us to capitalise on the investment for as long as that is at our disposal. Trust is earned... and it is VERY early days."

... and compounded, for at least this Steemian, by his age ... He may be highly intelligent (no idea...), but he needs to have a lot of wisdom IMHO and these are not the same thing!

Over a long career and success in 5 industries, I have seen a lot of "the good, the bad, and the ugly" in the business world. Altruism, no matter what is said, is never part of it. How ruthlessly he pursues his profit motives should be clear soon enough, by his actions ... By which we will know a lot about his character ...

Until then, I am neither positive or negative on this big news. I am taking a "wait and see" attitude and ... While waiting ... Still here! 😊

lol well, age and being well-worn don't necessarily go together... although in this case they do WAHAHAHA!!!

How ruthlessly he pursues his profit motives should be clear soon enough, by his actions ... By which we will know a lot about his character ...

BINGO!

I don’t care much for uncertainty in my life, and when faced with it, I tend to see all that can go wrong. Life, however, by its nature is uncertain, so I mostly drift around feeling anxious and hoping it’s not too bad.

You, on the other hand, look uncertainty in the face and choose to find the best possible outcomes while still being aware that it may not be so good, only dealing with that IF it comes to that. Yours is the encouraging (and well stated) path! You’ve already won half of the battle!

 2 years ago 

Thank you @jdkennedy I appreciate your inspiring input toward what I have expressed. I will add though, that much like you, I can also be very anxious about a lot of things and worry myself unnecessarily - so in many instances, my mindset is a conscious "choice" rather than a natural response. Believe it or not - practice that often enough (whether you are convinced or not at the time) and mark my words, you will feel your emotional and thought reactions beginning to shift.

But - also, there is also nothing wrong with how you process things either. We are all who we are for good reason and our unique trait combinations ALL have their benefits!

Very true! I can say that I’m better at encouraging others than I am with myself. I can live with that :). It also makes receiving encouragement easier as well! Cheers!

Yeah, that witness and community chat was fine well spent for me. Learned alot and really got to hear multiple perspectives. @aggroed did great at facilitating the discussion. The chats in both the AMA and this were "passionate" to say the least.

Fun times ahead. Glad you're out of the hospital, never fun....

 2 years ago 

Yes agreed! There are definitely interesting times on the horizon. And thank you for the well wishes :)

Hey lady! So glad you're feeling better...and I'm surprised that you made it that long in the hospital haha. I can see you talking yourself out of muntinous ideas from the start!

It's been crazy times with this whole Tron business. I do agree that Crimson had the best response.

 2 years ago 

hahaha!!! What can I say ;)

Yes, she had a very realistic, cut through the crap and emotion perspective.... right up my alley!

There is never a good time to be in hospital and I don't think anybody likes to stay in there - hope you feel better soon :)

 2 years ago 

Agreed hon! and thank you :)

Love your positive outlook Jaynie. This will keep you in good stead. I’m glad you are home and hopefully your health problem will be resolved soon.

It was quite a surprise to see the move with Tron. I , also of an optimistic nature, think everything will be enhance with new blood in Steem.

Much love and blessings! 💕 😊

Thank you honey... and yeah, well... you know me! haha :D

Yes, it was a surprise! Gave me juicy reading matter in the hospital haha!

Thank you for the kind wishes xxx am very happy to be home!

Hey, good to hear you're out of jail hospital and are on the mend. I hope your tests come up with a reason for the issues; I think not knowing can be the worst. I don't have much else to say as I don't want to engage with all the Justin Sun stuff, plenty of others out there wasting time speculating.

Have a good Sunday.

 2 years ago 

Yes, thank you... it was good to get the hell out of there lol! As for the tron thingy... yes, we are all experts now, don't you know haha! ;)

Yes, so many experts all gathered together in the one place. Talk about expert overload. And then there's little old me, blogging about what I did on Sunday. I must be a non-expert.

 2 years ago 

LOL!!! I just like to blur the lines with my non-expert expertise hahaha!!!

Why not indeed. I would say that there's many experts at non-experting. 🙂

LOL.... Ned? no wait... he's a non-expert non-expert. It's like a double negative and aint nobody got time for that! HAHA!

Awww hey @jaynie - I am so sorry to hear you are unwell but it sounds like you have taken positive steps to heal and that is what is most important - big hopes for Steemit going forward too, I feel positive 🙏❤️

Thank you @sunsethunter, I really appreciate the positive wishes :) and yes, staying motivated and positive for Steem too!!! :)

Those comments during the AMN... 🤣😂... and there was only 1 person from the TRON.. but the "after party" in Discord was insane

lol yes. That comment thread was hysterical!!! but agreed, I enjoyed the after party a whole lot more! haha!

I hope that you feel a lot better now. May you continue to be healed and blessed! Have a great day!

In health, wealth and happiness there are always two sides to the coin, the only time you have insight is normally hindsight which comes at 50/50.

Great to hear you are back home, hospitals really are no place anyone would want to go on the best of days (yup even as a visitor I am allergic)!

Business model with current technology changes, most are adapting on the fly!

What we do have is committed people who have put years of work on back-end and front-end development, strong sense of loyalty from content creators of this we can all be proud.

Yes this is business, many more discussions will follow on how to make Steem blockchain the best performing!

Oh hell yes! You have no idea how good my bed felt hahahaha!!! Tomorrow, I will be a visitor and will be sitting in one of those horridly long queues...

And as for what you have said about Steem - I could not agree more!

Thank you for the curation love xxx
Always greatly appreciated!

Those queues... say no more! Absolutely senseless jumping the gun, business is business, we can only hope this takes a positive turn going forward.

Thanks for support and motivating the communities.

Got to do something positive with my day time hours haha :) I love what I do here.

As for the queues... yeah I was trying to take a photo now to show you, but its too dark down the corridor. lol

Might be a blessing in disguise being to dark to see LOL...

Well, we will as always fight this thing together whatever it is my friend and I certainly hope and pray that it is not serious.
The Tron thing can take a back seat as far as I am concerned, as time will always reveal the true intentions.
For now there is more important matters, such as getting you healed for starters. Hang in there soldier and know that you have a legion backing you!
Blessings!

Me too, me too. And thank you again @papilloncharity for all your support! Honestly dont know what I would have done without all of you!

I sure am hoping for a positive report for you. Well wishes of course from you pal in Michigan!
