You all changed my life and I thank you 💙💙

…hello everyone! I know this is kind of out of the blue, and no one will probably see this, but I just want to take this time to thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart… I recently began creating NFTs for fun, just to see how it all works, and began distributing them for free on the Loopringorg sub, and the response was absolutely overwhelming and heartwarming. I seriously cannot believe that over 700 people upvoted and liked my admittedly basic and humble “LOOPTROOP Token”, but you all showered me with love and support that I was not expecting in the slightest. I seriously cannot thank you all enough for the tremendous response- the other day, I received a notification on my phone that my post was the most popular on Loopringorg for that day, and I couldn’t believe it. My jaw dropped, and I couldn't believe that even one person liked me work! :o You guys are so absolutely amazing!!! My heart is so full, and I’m so grateful and feel so fortunate to be within such a loving and tight community- this only solidified my conviction that indeed, #wagmi. I created the NFT to distribute to people who wanted NFTs but didn’t have one, and I wanted to add value to our community with the little talent that I have in any capacity, and there is still a lot for me to learn (dynamic NFTs programmed to change with Loopring prices, programmed to change according to time, puzzles that can be solved to yield prizes, etc…) and the possibilities are SO endless! [😮]( It’s an exciting new world!! As I am sure many of you can relate, my dreams of becoming an artist died with my childhood when I was forced into slaving away for a system that didn’t bring me pleasure or satisfaction in life. I followed the ritual motions of graduating high school, going to a good college and getting a job that doesn’t value my work in a field of study that drains my soul. Eventually, I stopped drawing about \~12 years ago and haven't picked up a pencil since. I have been tired, exhausted and overworked, and this pandemic brought me brain fog and depression that cost me my job. But seeing peoples’ responses, like “It looks amazing bro!” or “Those are so dope! I’d love one!” really hit me hard in my heart. I felt so alive, so grateful that I was able to provide people with such joy- I felt like my inner child again that drew for hours as a guy with Asbergers. The love and support that I got from such amazing members in our community like u/lolle97, u/Praxxtice, u/GoneBamboo, u/12masonry, u/devdevgoat, u/TamilPunk, u/IllustriousReveal, u/Omnicron2, u/Extra-Computer6303, and so many others, as well as excellent and wonderful mods like u/half_dane who selflessly moderate and do so many wonderful things for our community, I am blessed and beyond grateful to have stumbled upon what I now know as the greatest community on Reddit. I couldn’t believe that people were willing to share my work, and so many people provided such positive encouragement and love. I am so, so grateful, I tell you hwat… It’s literally SO crazy what kind of world-changing technology we are holding in our hands. I am so overwhelmed and grateful that we are living in a time where we the people, are given power to create without expensive intermediaries. I can’t believe that for the first time in my life, I am able to glimpse into a potential future of “what if I didn’t go back to work… and pursued my dreams?”, because even I don't receive money for the NFTs, (which I never expected in the first place until so many of you encouraged me to try selling them to support the vision!) I felt so much joy in sharing what I created with others who enjoyed it- joy that I couldn’t have possibly felt from what has crushed my dreams and caused me to lose my passion. When I saw that I had made $176 from selling my work, I was completely floored- so many people donated generous amounts of Loopring, and so many people bought my work in less than a day, and I was absolutely flabbergasted and shocked. I was also embarrassed but decided to work harder to provide you all with more value and work that you all will truly want. Work that makes you happy, and work that brings utility and joy. I felt a spark of that passion that I haven't felt in over 12 years, and though I’m nowhere near as talented as many great artists on this site, I’d like to continue learning, and continuing innovating to build true value for our community and create things worth buying and treasuring. That would truly fill my heart with the greatest joy- to provide something to people that makes them happy. Nothing would make me happier, and you all allowed me to do that- Even if I disappear into obscurity due to my amateur talents, I am grateful that I had my opportunity for 15 minutes of fame, and I am eternally grateful for the joy you all have blessed me with today. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. As a token of my gratitude, I'd like to giveaway free NFTs to anyone who wants one- I pray that we all become blessed, happy and healthy into infinity [💙💙]( I love you all [💙💙](
