I watch these women, most of whom never knew each other before 3 days ago, form friendships that many of us long to find. When we allow ourselves to step back from all the day to day ruckus, allow ourselves to withdraw from all the bullshit and be open…these bonds flourish. We let ourselves be ourselves. We get sweaty together, see each other without makeup, hear the stories and drama and still the person sitting across from you sees your beauty unwaveringly. It’s honest and sincere.
As I go home I hope to take this with me. Being honest to myself, being my true self so that I can deliver that to those who surround me. I wouldn’t want to give anything but my true self to those that I love, it’s what they deserve and it’s what I deserve. It’s liberating, freeing and provides a kind of independence that nothing else can give you.
I’ve got all kinds of goodness coming once I get back to the states that I can’t wait to share with you! Keep shining beauties and stay true to you. Always.
