Today I…

Today I attended a magnificent and spiritual Mental Health and Wellness Day Retreat, hosted by two of the strongest women I know and I’m so grateful I get to call them friends. 

Today I gave myself permission to just be in the moment. 

Today I gave myself permission to escape from the clutter that consumes my mind daily. 

Today I gave myself permission to experience joy. 

Today I made connections with so many beautiful souls; we shared stories of inspiration and hope.

Today I learned. 

Today I laughed.

Today I cried.

Today I had moments of anxiety, many moments.

Today I felt deep emotions. 

Today I felt the kindness of strangers.

Today I felt rejuvenated.

Today I felt safe.

Today I looked at my reflection in the mirror.

Today I was gently reminded that I am stronger than I think.

Today I honoured “Me” and soothed my soul with some yoga, listening intently to meaningful guest speakers, journaling, an incredible healing sound bath and a delicious lunch catered by the “Messhall” where the retreat took place and is also owned and operated by one of the magnificent hostesses @eddybeeandtootsie. It’s located in Sutton. Be sure to check it out! 

Thank you again to the glorious “Mrs. Bis” and “Tootsie” for including me in this magnificent and spiritual day and for making me feel so empowered.

And  thank you to my beautiful friend Jodi for ensuring I got there (and back home safe and sound!). I am truly blessed to have so many amazing, kind, empathetic, giving humans in my life who stop at nothing to cheer me on Every. Single. Day.

Today I was enough.
