A few weeks ago, I attended a creative retreat in Goa. I walked into the space, not knowing what to expect, and found a spot all to myself. As it is whenever you enter a new space there is nervousness, and a fear of the unknown. But within a few minutes the room was filled positive energy. Everyone was so welcoming, inviting, they wanted me to be there. I felt as though I was supposed to be. The intention of the retreat was to facilitate, direct, focus on, or create a vision of your future.This applies to your personal and professional goals. It was a place of growth, where you came to be nurtured and given guidance. It gave me answers to questions that I did not even know I had. Within just 5 days, I was able to clearly articulate a vision of my future, one that was abundant with positive energy. I saw a version of myself that was optimistic, more confident, and a woman that wasn’t ruled by fear.
As an “adult”, if you can call yourself that, there is pressure to do things by yourself. You feel it is your duty to solve problems, ask less questions, be as wise as people expect or your age deems you to be. It’s hard to say the words – I don’t know.
And I didn’t know, I was confused as I’m sure most of us are at times. Guess what? It’s okay to ask for help, we all could use it.
My experience at the retreat opened me up to a number of different perspectives and experiences. It broadened my perception. I feel more grounded now, I have a foundation that will allow me to stride forward. I am a woman on a mission. The CreativeGarh team of Arun and Mihika, who run the retreat, have given me insights that I will carry for the rest of my life.
Thank you guys, for helping find my purpose and thanks for making the world a better place. As for the rest of you reading, I hope you have a purpose and I hope you’ll ask for help when you need it.
Lots of love,
