Earlier this year when I made a vision board I decided I needed a solo adventure. I also put on it more yoga and more meditation.
I wasn’t sure how it was going to happen – going on a solo trip. I’ve never left Max for longer than like 12 hours but my heart and soul were begging for some open air and alone time. Really some quiet time. Like he always does, God provides and puts the opportunities right in your face to take advantage of. As I’ve made more of a commitment this year to follow his breadcrumbs, I decided that yes, my husband could handle all three kids for the weekend. And yes I needed this adventure.
After lots of research I found the perfect solo adventure. Camp Yogi down in Wimberly, Texas. Three days of yoga, meditation, the great outdoors, solo is exactly what this momma needs and today is finally the day I get to leave. Take a look at this place? How could you not want to go?!
Over the last five weeks they owners of the retreat have worked extensively with us to help us create our intentions for the weekend and establish good routines to prepare us for the weekend so that we get the most out of it.
To say I’m excited is an understatement. To say I’m nervous is an even bigger understatement. This trip is bringing out fears I have, but they are also fears I need to face head on.
Being alone. Or better yet walking into a situation/place where I know not a single soul – terrifying. I really thought hard about inviting a friend on this trip with me and decided against it. I feel like my heart and soul really need to discover something this weekend. I’m not exactly sure what that is but I am sure that its something huge and it needs to be discovered on my own. I also thought bringing along a friend would keep me in my comfort zone and the entire goal is to step OUT of it to create some magic and possibly new friendships. I will be sharing a cabin with four others bunk bed style.
Activities for the weekend are all the things that make me nervous. Zip lining, brazilian style dance (sounds amazing yet terrifies me to dance around people I don’t know without a glass of wine or five in me), rock climbing, SUP yoga, being on water, being close to water, away from home, what if I fall from the zip line and die…you know the usual things.
Let’s not forget to mention my fear of not being worthy enough to be there. I also put this on my vision board to FEEL MORE WORTHY, feeling this is the perfect weekend to get this in check right? My fear surrounds the fact that I haven’t taken my yoga practice to the level it really needs to be at. The camp ensures us that this is a place for all levels but even though I’ve started taking more advanced classes I still don’t stop considering myself a beginner yogi.
“Comparison is the thief of joy.” Will certainly be my slogan this weekend.
Please pray for me this weekend as I go on this journey to conquer fears, find myself a little more, and pray they I find joy in all the experiences that present themselves to me. Pray that I feel Gods magic and stop and listen to him.
Oh and pray for my husband. Who is graciously taking all three kids for the weekend without any complaint and letting me enjoy the quiet. I couldn’t be luckier.
Can’t wait to share everything later next week with you guys! Life is a journey and I’m always thankful your here to help support me in mine. <3
