Recharged and taking flight
Just reentering the real world after five marvelous days in the Outer Banks with some of the most inspiring women I've ever met. As expected, Elizabeth and Michelle created magic. They held the space for all of us with grace and love and changed all of us for the better. Sarah coaxed me out of my head and away from fear and showed me that I too am an artist. (The photo above is of the paintings I made in Sarah's class- I'm still glowing about them.) Michelle, my angel in so many ways this year, led perhaps the most powerful, meditative yoga class I've ever experienced. I was so blissed out after class I could barely speak. Jen, my storytelling guru, got into my head once again and pulled out all sorts of ideas that I can't wait to get onto paper (or the computer screen). And rock star Mccabe encouraged me to release my inner mermaid and strut my badass self. She also reminded me how great it is to dance to that really ghetto club music from the late '90s. Thank you all.
With fuel in my tank and wings on my back, I'm taking off and ready to conquer the world. Yup, I'm feeling pretty damn good right now.
