Hey, #TeamPete! Real talk as we get ready for our Weekend of Action.

In this photo, I am a nervous wreck. Let me explain.

Monday night, my husband and I hosted a Pete-Up — a chance for anyone who likes or is curious about @PeteButtigieg to get together, ask
questions, talk about the election and the campaign, and generally hang with cool, like-minded people.

Most people would assume, with my mega-interest in presidential politics, this is totally my jam.

It is not. It is SOOO not.

I am an introvert. I hate small talk. I hate
hosting. I hate dredging up every insecurity that’s been percolating in my head since middle school. I HAAAATE the deep dread wondering who’s going to show up (and getting all the last minute cancellations from people who are equally as anxious). I cried and grumbled at

Hey New Hampshire! Hear me out?

PETE BUTTIGIEG (a thread):

I'm a person in long term recovery (no alcohol/drugs 25 years!), and work in SUD treatment. My recovery, and work in the field, continues to reveal something important:
We all need each other. A LOT.

The beautiful life I now enjoy, was literally planted in the fertile soil of simple kindness from others...and grew into a sustainable lifestyle around my recovery community's principles of unity & service to others.
/2

When therapists teach hurting families how to "fight fair"...it isn't actually about FIGHTING.

OK, #TeamPete - it's time for some real talk.
Recently, I've been seeing a lot of grumblings about the media and their coverage - or lackthereof - about our guy @PeteButtigieg.
@PeteButtigieg I get the frustration, but as someone in the media field, I'm telling you, there's no conspiracy or cabal out to sabotage Pete's campaign. Not within the world of credible news and info media anyway. Leave those conspiracies to others.
@PeteButtigieg Instead, let's follow the #RulesOfTheRoad and turn our frustration or negative energy into even MORE grassroots efforts. If you've paid attention to the mobilize site, you'll notice organizers are setting up all kinds of things you can join to help/get involved.

Why are growing numbers of Americans—Democrats, Independents, and Republicans alike—enthusiastically supporting @PeteButtigieg instead of one of the other frontrunners this early in #Election2020? Because we want someone who can lead us into a rational, hopeful new era ...
Who will hold their own during campaign events calmly, courageously, and with integrity—respecting the humanity of other candidates and citizens—without resorting to the negative, dark tactic of “humiliate, beat down, conquer” ...
Who’s a rare intellect and Renaissance man—throughly conversant with all the issues/areas of knowledge that one would hope an American President would have mastered—yet humble enough to acknowledge and learn from the “least” among us.

About climbing my 1st 14er, campaigning for @PeteButtigieg at 14,000ft, finding community with strangers, an electrifying moment, and the biggest surprise of my life!
We arrived at the #MtEvans trailhead around 7:30am, the peak was lost in fast moving clouds. #14er
Mt Evans magnets & shirts don't lie, the GOATS! So awesome.
We had goats greet us at the trailhead, we kept our distance &
ogled them with delight. #14ers
#OhWhataBeautifulMorning
#TeamPete, I brought my @playmobil #minime & a #Pete2020 banner for some inspiring photos exploring #AmericatheBeautiful.
#SummitLake parking lot, with another 2,00-odd ft to ascend to the peak of #MtEvans, a #14er that I can see from my house, SE of Denver!
