Everything about this weekend was perfect. Any imperfections only made it that much more authentic, that much more real, that much better (though I’d be hard pressed to tell you what those imperfections were because I failed to see any – other than my own stupidity). If you’d have told me on Thursday that the weekend ahead would leave me rocked to my core, indescribably inspired, unexpectedly heartbroken to have to leave these incredible women behind… I would have laughed. I never could have guessed where this adventure would have taken me; I’m sure that any notion I could have had had been far surpassed in every facet.
I learned so much in my time at the River Ranch with the Women Who Explore, both about myself and about my perception of others. So many times, we place these barriers upon ourselves by seeing our fellow sisters as competition instead of collaboration. If we can just be brave enough to look past our own insecurities, and appreciate other women for their stories … oh the bonds and connections we can create. I am so incredibly thankful to have met every single Soul Sister in Golden. I am forever changed, in the best of ways,
