I brought a lot of self-doubt into this trip. Feelings of inadequacy with parenthood, my career, my marriage. I definitely left with a renewed sense of energy and purpose and tangible skills to be a better communicator and listener. It was so inspiring to see everyone being so vulnerable throughout the trip and that’s something I have always struggled with. I learned so much through everyone’s stories and feel much more comfortable owning my feelings and expressing them with those that I love. I have a whole new appreciation for the relationships in my life and how to be a better friend, partner, daughter, and mother.
