It's been 9 years today... thank you! <3
So, today is a really special day for me. 9 years ago today I was invited to become a moderator for Gaia and asked to help out this community in that capacity. 7 years ago today, I started my job as an Admin for this most amazing community and company.

If you would have tried to tell me 7 years ago about just how phenomenal a journey this would turn out to be, I probably wouldn't have believed you! I never could have imagined the absolute depths of humanity, creativity and compassion I have seen in members of this community.

I know sometimes we don't agree on this or that, and I know I am not perfect, but I always love that you care enough to tell me how you feel. And I am honored to all of you who have talked to me, and shared with me your dreams, hopes, goals, and successes. In short, who have shared your lives with me. It has been my great pleasure to get to know so many of you, and watch the many brilliant and wondrous ways your lives have unfolded.

So I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all, friends both past and present, and new friends yet to meet, for being such an amazing group. Thanks for the many laughs, discussions, heated debates, arguments, joys, ideas, support, inspirations, and fun. Basically, for being very much like a family - a big, brilliant, organically-grown, fabulously diverse and quirky family of whom I have grown rather fond. emotion_hug emotion_bigheart

Congratulations Sisky! ^_^ All 9 years of having you work with Gaia have been wonderful.

You're a personal hero of mine. You helped inspire me to start an exercise program even with my medical problems. ^_^ I hope Gaia HQ knows how special of a lady you are.

I remember reading the article you got interviewed for! It talked about how you were a moderator first and eventually ended up flying out the Cali to join Gaia (that was you right? @__@;; )

It's been a long journey, and I'm so grateful you were head hunted for the part! heart Here's to another 9 years, or more!

This actually made me tear up, Sisky!

I don't think that there's any staffmember on Gaia who has made an impact on my Gaia experience as much as you have. I think I first met you at a Gaia meetup two years ago; I was amazed at how gracious and kind you were to everyone you met. I then got to interact with you through here, and learnt that you were just as sweet online as you were in person.

I just want you to know that the community at large acknowledges and appreciates all of your hard work. We know that a lot of effort goes into the behind-the-scenes stuff you do, but you're also so kind to users in the foreground -- and I feel like that's so rare. Not that the rest of Gaia's staff isn't nice, but you're truly something else.

Late to the party on stalking your journal, but its been a busy summer. You have been one of my fave admins for quite a while since you are one of the most public. As well as all the health journey stuff you share with us. I am getting back on track with my workout plans as well, which isnt always easy with what I do (since on a day like today I work from ~8:30am-11:30pm, with only a couple 10 min beaks outside of meal times. But still make sure I work out at the end of the day.

Thank you for being awesome, also...looking forward to your september journal updates ninja
