I’m not a naturally outgoing person, so the night before I left for this trip to @campconscious_ , I felt so intimidated, by the idea of interacting with a group of such powerful women I hadn’t met, that I was actually a little terrified. I started wishing that I had never said yes to this amazing opportunity, and even considered cancelling last minute.
Wow. Wow. Wow. My fears couldn’t have been anymore unfounded. Rather than being intimidating or exclusionary, as I had feared so deeply, every woman on this trip was incredibly friendly and inclusive.
After the first couple hours, my social anxiety faded, and left me open to connecting with a group of empowered women that I know will be my friends for a long time to come.
Together we all showed up willing to connect and be vulnerable, and the conversations that arose helped me learn some life-changing lessons for which I will be forever grateful.
Thank you @theconsciouscarb for inviting me, and providing me with this opportunity to step out of my comfort zone, confront my fears, and grow so substantially as a person, in such a short amount of time.
Thank you to every woman on this trip, each beautiful and inspiring in their own unique ways, for welcoming me with open arms, starting conversations with me when I was being shy, and for encouraging me to love and cherish myself and my body more deeply.
To say that I’m grateful for this experience would be the definition of an understatement. 🙏🏼💗 #campconscious
