I honestly have no words for how life changing this past weekend was. Like I'm genuinely in absolute shock at how different I feel and how my perspective has changed. I went to a spiritual retreat called "Rewrite Your Story" and that's exactly what I did. I rewrote my story with the help of an incredible community of like-minded people.
It's always been so hard for me to fit in with others because of my eccentric, spiritual nature. It's difficult to speak to most people my age because I feel like no one truly gets it. I want to talk about life, death, nature, the mind, dreams, passions, goals.....I'm tired of talking about empty topics and just having useless conversations that include gossip and negativity.. It gets old after a while and for me, it got old real fast. At 21, I was completely over that life. I wanted more depth and more positivity. I was tired of not feeling genuinely happy with myself and constantly putting others needs before my own. I knew I had to make serious changes, I knew the Universe was testing me. I knew it was a wakeup call and I'm so glad I responded to it. The past 2 years have been really crazy in terms of personal growth. Like I don't even know how I got here. All I know is I'm so much happier with MYSELF and who I am as a person. I understand things on a more profound level and my path is so much clearer now. This retreat honestly was the cherry on the sundae. It just hit the spot so perfectly, I've never been happier.
Rewrite Your Story started with a beautiful introduction from the spiritual dynamic duo who were leading the workshop, Sah D'Simone and Moun D'Simone. I just want to add that they are 2 of the most AMAZING human beings I have ever met. Their motivational and magical energy truly transmitted to everyone and I felt so safe being near them. I felt like my energy was being protected and taken care of, it was so refreshing. Oh and they're siblings....serious #familygoals. They were so transparent when they were sharing their life stories and it made me realize that I'm not alone in this journey. It can be scary when you feel like you don't have anyone who supports you or understands your beliefs, but seeing how real and authentic everyone was made me feel like I could be myself and not hold back. I felt like I could finally express myself and talk about the things I love. I had PERMISSION to be who I am. So I truly thank everyone that attended the retreat because every part of it was so magical.
We learned about how to nourish your body with the right foods, how to use certain breathing techniques to rewire your brain, how to connect with others without judgement and fear, how to love yourself and put yourself first, how to be in touch with your intuition, how to push yourself to keep going even when you want to stop....all these things are essential for our well-being. Knowledge is power. Get out of your comfort zone and get to really know yourself on a deeper level. Trust me, it'll be the best thing you'll ever do for yourself. That's true love; when you begin to feel more in touch with your emotions and you begin to accept yourself whole-heartedly.
I love the person I'm becoming regardless of what that looks like to other people. I want to thank everyone who has been a part of my journey so far, I couldn't have done it without your beautiful energies. xx
