I had a lot of the "I'm not worthy" thoughts so many of us have before embarking on anything of a decent sized magnitude. As a matter of full disclosure, I ate down my feelings about it - something I haven't done in nearly a year. Gah! Old habits suck, don't they?
And the day was, in my opinion, extraordinary.
We had some breakfast. We set some intentions. We got comfy with each other. We did some gentle moving.
I gave everyone a goodie bag which may have contained a journal that we referred to as a note pad, because journaling is work you know. There were lemon and lavender essential oil sample packets to help create an atmosphere of creativity and calm. There was a page to color - apparently I can't completely get away from my Stampin' Up! days.
We had a marvelous writing exercise. (I must credit the Creative Joy retreat I went on in 2012 to introducing me to the poem that was our starting off point.)
We started our vision boards.
(HINT: click on the pictures to see them bigger.)
Oh (!) and cookies and chocolate covered pretzels.
All in all, I am over the moon delighted and look forward to hosting more events here sooner rather than later.
Join us next time, won't you?
Play that music too loud
