Yesterday I arrived home from my first summer camp experience in the US. I wanted to share my story and experiences and in a separate blog post I will get more into the "aha" moments I had from a business perspective, tools I want to share and what really inspired me. This is about how I experienced camp.
Background and also to answer the question on why I went to Camp GLP (Good Life Project) - since 2011, I have been listening to Jonathan Fields interview people as part of his vision to create a "Good Life Project" and every interview has inspired and challenged me. So when I first heard about Camp GLP in 2014, I said to myself, I want to go there one day. A wonderful friend went last year and when she came back from camp, I signed up to go with her this summer.
The Adventure: I left home last week feeling so depleted. My dog had been ill and I had had such little sleep. Plus I was full of fear - of trying something new, going to a new place etc. And so off I went to New York, feeling pretty apprehensive. There was a part of me that was also excited, after all I would get to see one of my real life heroes in person.
What were the big experiences for me?
It was also hard - I am not going to write this blog post without the whole story of my weekend.
An experience like this changes you. I have new friends, new ways of looking at life, new ideas to implement in my business and belief that something can be scary and fill you with fear but will be ok...even if it feels very different to how you thought it would be.
I saw people dressed up as Unicorns, people dancing like no one was watching, people sharing their stories, standing up on stage at the Talent show and giving it their all....I saw love in so many shapes and forms this weekend. All part of a Good Life.
