  1. 1. Hi. I’m Ryan and this is my Playbook.Sunday, March 24, 13
  2. 2. This is a place for me to explore my thoughts related to SERVE to myself to... life. Maybe you’ll take something away, too. But maybe not. We’ll see. I’m curious to see where this takes us..Sunday, March 24, 13

  4. 4. hmm...Sunday, March 24, 13
  5. 5. What makes me feel welcome.. How do I welcome others... When people appear genuinely 1) I’m intentional - I’m not a interested in me very talkative person in general, in my well being but I make myself come out of in who I am as a person. my shell when it comes to When I feel a part of something welcoming others. BIGGER 2) I’m a real person. I don’t When I have something to bring associate with others through to the a title (I’m Ryan, who happens to bethe RA; I’m not the RA, who happens to be named Ryan). 3) I try to be present; for the most part I’m around (How are other people going to want to be present, if even YOU don’t want to???). Sometimes I need to find my own space though..Sunday, March 24, 13

  7. 7. So that was a real recipe for “Slutty Brownies,” not “Welcoming.” I’m already breaking rules, and we’re not even through week one yet. NOM NOM I picked that recipe because.. A) They’re delicious. Seriously, try some. Better yet, make some and invite me over and we’ll have some together (hopefully you don’t like them so I get more). B) Alex, one of my residents, brought these from home one time and I fell in love with them. She knew how much I liked them, and next time she went home, she made more and brought them back. Did she make them the second time because I liked them? I have no idea. Probably not. Buuuuuuuut, it still made me feel good (and not just my belly). When I think about the times that I’ve felt welcome, it’s because people remember things about me. They follow up on some of the things that have been happening in my life.Sunday, March 24, 13
  8. 8. So I guess that’s the biggest part of my recipe.. Remembering.. caring.. following up.. Tell me something important about you, and watch it happen.. Morgan’s big interview (Go you!)Sunday, March 24, 13
  9. 9. I think I’m getting a little bit ahead of myself.. Probably a lot of what I just talked about falls under the category of “Connect,” instead of “Welcome...” I’m reminded that “Welcome” is.. But that’s fine if this Playbook is a bit messy.. (follow me)Sunday, March 24, 13

  11. 11. It looks like the places where I feel I belong are: A) Where I feel “Home” B) Where/with people I’ve invested myself in (ending a sentence with a preposition, ugh) C) Where other people have invested in me. Get it.. home.. investment.. I know, I know, I’m funny. I’ll be here for six weeks, don’t worry. .. but this is it for week one!Sunday, March 24, 13
