maybe it’s because i’m lazy.
maybe it’s because unpacking means it’s over.
maybe it’s because i am not yet ready to unpack all the yummy goodness that has filled up my heart and mind over the last 6 days.
yes, that last one is definitely true.
my heart is so full. my head is a little jumbled, and i am in desperate need to write it all down and get it all out.
but where do i start?
i am enough.
that statement alone can and will change my life.
i am loved.
and i am worthy of that love.
i have so much to offer the world.
why do i shy away from that?
i can make a difference.
and i WILL make a difference.
i have a voice.
as i use it i will feel empowered and be able to empower others.
i choose happiness.
it is my choice, not something that happens to me.
my story matters because i matter.
i share myself, not a fabricated version of myself.
i am willing to feel a full spectrum of emotions.
i will not push out feelings i am afraid of.
i will share my gifts with those around me.
it is the least i can do with all i’ve been given.

i feel so blessed to have spent the last week with truly incredible women. i feel stronger and lighter all at the same time. i feel like my best friends are now strung all across the country, and i feel hope for amazing things that will come out of women who know who they are and are unafraid. classes on SEO and viral marketing will never change me as a person or make a significant impact on my life, but the friendships, the connections, the awakenings and personal growth will. i am a better woman than i was last monday, and i am so grateful.
