|do what you love retreat, england|
it’s hard to imagine that i was lucky enough to spend five days in this beautiful place for the do what you love retreat!
i knew it would be amazing… i mean, i was to be assisting the lovely flora bowley with her Bloom True painting workshop! but not only was the painting time incredible AND the scenery gorgeous…but the people attending the retreat were simply amazing!
it all seemed to fall into place in one of those moments where you say you’d love to have something come into your life, and then two seconds later it actually does!
as i mentioned in monday’s post, i was really quite nervous about my trip to england. i’d already been feeling like life had been keeping me overly busy and i was dreaming of spending warm days lounging in my backyard garden.
but i love to travel. and this trip made me feel renewed and so inspired! there’s something about traveling on your own and meeting people you never would otherwise and staying in places so different from your home that seems so completely necessary…especially when i’m at a place where i may not want to wander.
this trip taught me so much, especially about myself. and although i did not want to leave, being surrounded by so much beauty and so many wonderful, amazing people and stories has made me appreciate all of the rest of my life even more! and really renewed my passion for doing what i love and sharing it with the world!
