This past weekend my sisters and I went on a retreat out of town. It was a much needed trip, Friday to Monday. I felt so relaxed I didn't want to ever stop relaxing. We didn't go and do much but we did a lot of bonding, which was the whole point of the trip.
Now that I think about it, we didn't even take much pictures, but we have all the memories and stories we need inside our mind and hearts.
There was a total of five of us that attended, not everyone was able to come. We mainly talked about ourselves, relationships, career, and each other. It was powerful, empowering, motivational, soothing, and inspiring. The things that I was saying to my sisters and the things that they were saying to me and each other was so golden. I came to realize that I should be taking my own advice, how come I'm telling her this when I am not doing it myself? It's more difficult done than said.
We did some shopping here and there but I didn't buy much. I didn't need much and I was so glad that I didn't buy much because I'll be going out of town again next month.
We all had to come up with an activity and mine was based on your confidence and trying to empower one another. Realize what your worth is and what you lack in and better your self-image. The way that you see yourself is different from what others see us as and that's what I wanted to point out.
I wanted my sisters to feel and look as beautiful as they are to me and their loved ones. We can look beautiful on the outside but feel horrible on the inside.
What are your values? If you were to meet me, as a stranger what are five things that you would want me to know about you?
I wrote down:
1. family oriented
2. hard working
3. big family
4. plus size
5. event planner, successful
I wrote that, in that order. Those are some things that I value and want a stranger to know about me, I'm labeling myself here. What about you?
