UPDATE - Amber L -
I just wanted to send a quick thank you to you and was hoping you could pass along my gratitude to the team for all you do for us retreat soul sisters.
Last week I wasn't feeling well, 24 hour stomach bug courtesy of one of my little germ factories, lol. It brought me down emotionally too, there's been stress lately financially (I'm much better though in that department too!!! Thank you Uncle Sam! Hahaha) Anyhow, EmmyLou, my roommate from the retreat had reached out to me but being in a place that I was I just let her know and was totally honest about everything. I didn't want to bother her down with my struggle, but I also trusted her enough to be vulnerable and tell her what I was going through.
Not only did she help me to get back in touch with the energetic, bubbly, gratitude practicing Amber but she was going through somethings herself. Over the course of two or three days of texting each other, we really uplifted one another and hopefully I was there for her as much as she was there for me. We've been connecting a lot more lately and I know that she is a true friend for life.
So I wanted to thank you and the whole team really. When I think of being on the retreat and the time I spent with my roommate there, the way her and I just instantly hit it off from the moment I first walked into the room...and she yelled through the dark to me with her beautiful English accent but in a way that was poking fun at Americans "helloooooo!" Even now i'm smiling about it so big!
Last year I spent a great deal of the year implementing what I had learned on the retreat. It was like starting from the ground up. The retreat demolished the rickety old shack of negative emotions and helped me build a better foundation based on gratitude and self love. I can't thank you all enough for that.
Thank you for the room arrangements working out the way they did, thank you for all of the hard work and the long hours that you all put in behind the scenes making the retreat "theme park" as magical as it was for all of us or treat ladies!!!!
This year on valentine's Day I didn't feel an ounce, not even the slightest bit, of loneliness or sadness or depression or anxiety or worry at all. This year I feel absolutely amazing…and I'm single! Haha!!!
Anyhow, I just wanted you and the team to know how thankful I am to all of you for everything that you do!
Missing all of your beautiful faces and incredible energies!!!!
Hugs and love,
Amber :) xoxoxo
