I’ve thought about how to start this post for days now. Staring up at my hotel room ceiling each night, sorting through the mountain of emotions, ideas, thoughts and stories that I’ve experienced these past days has been immensely overwhelming. So much to take in and process, so much to integrate and absorb.
I witnessed so much beauty, that I think my heart broke just a little bit. Truly.
I made the most amazing friends who will be treasured for this entire lifetime. Sue and Courtney, you have my heart, always! The generosity that was shared with me was so humbling, and so real that I know will never be the same.
But most of all, I became very present to how full this world is of goodness and beauty and love.
I was reminded that while we are each on our own unique path, living lives unrecognizable from each others, we share so many of the same struggles, barriers and fears.
This past week I left the farm, boarded a plane to northern California and essentially stepped off the plank into uncharted waters. Thank goodness Ariella was waiting there for me when I arrived.
She held space, while I expanded into more of my true self. It was amazing and terrifying and wonderful, all in the same breath. I am changed, forever and certainly for the best.
***A detailed, picture infused re-cap of the journey will be streaming live all week. Stay tuned, because it’s gonna be good!
