UPDATE - Cornelia B -
My life hasn't drastically changed since the retreat and that's actually good for me. I tend to be like a pendulum and set my sights on something major (not that it is a bad thing) but I catapult myself there, or swing over like a pendulum only to find myself even further behind in the back swing. So for me the retreat and the concept of 1% shifts has hit home. I have become patient with myself and have also not let the questions of others and my fear of their judgement) resonate with me. (Well not most of the time anyway :). We've talked how family can say things out of their worry that sits and takes up space in your thoughts. But a reminder it is all out of love.
I do have goals.... many things in my life I want to accomplish. My antics if you will. But right now I have sifted through a lot of the baggage I have left behind. Things I have ignored and well, they don't go away if you ignore them. Facing the things that needed attention so I can move forward free of baggage, free of debt, and free of worry.
When we did one specific visualization at the retreat, I didn't picture myself, I pictured my dad who passed a few short months before. I hurt more that he he still had so much life to live. So partially I do this in honor of him, because all he wanted was us to live our best life. I also want that for myself, and my family. I've heard Matt say in a video and maybe at retreat that some of his initially motivation and may be quoting wrong, was for family. I think that is where a lot of mine comes from. Don't get me wrong, I want this for myself too.... I won't settle for mediocre. But there is a weight that I carry that knows I will have to care or provide in some level for my family. (I'm single but like most families there is 'stuff'. Don't get me wrong, I am not settling for myself in areas to do this, but rather lighting a fire for me to aim higher, set my sights on bigger rewards and risks, and well paddle through the shit of failures to get there. I want them to have the resources and get the help that they need. Including myself, but I am resourceful.... and can do that!)
Anyway, with all that said. The retreat was and still is a game changer. I'm can say I wouldn't be where I am without it. The constant reminders and support of our group. The continuous videos help keep me for the most part on tract. And the structure has all been very helpful.
I do hope I can say I'm another 3 mos, that the baggage is gone and I have rewritten my goals and achieved more and closer to the bigger ones. Actually there isn't hope, it's actually no doubt. But in either case, like I said you're sorta stuck with me! :). So you'll get more updates!
