While I always knew that I loved him, I spent the time we were apart not having a clue what I wanted from life, who I truly wanted to spend it with and more importantly I didn't know who I was or who I wanted to be. I was well and truly lost.
I spent those 8 or so years we were apart living in a kind of fog, a ship lost at sea and because I was unsure if my feelings were because I was truly in love with him or because we had a history, I made sure I was 'busy' and distracted myself so I didn't have time to think about it.
This only changed when I took some dedicated time out and forced myself to take a good hard look at my life. Initially what I uncovered wasn't pretty; I had people in my life I didn’t particularly like because I felt obligated, I didn't have time for the people and things that really made me happy and I was drinking way too much alcohol to numb my pain. Miraculously, after a few days and lot of tears, the fog started to lift and I could see a clear path forward, I knew the changes I needed to make and I knew I needed to be with Hugh, of course while I had come to that decision, I had no idea how he really felt. By opening up to him I knew I was taking a risk that he would not feel the same way and reject me, luckily, he didn't and while it could have gone differently I knew I had to try.
If you are currently feeling a bit 'foggy' and unsure of the way forward, why not come along to our next residential retreat from 24 to 27 March. Retreats are a cost-effective way of taking dedicated time to reflect and work through our hopes, dreams and aspirations. Not only will you leave feeling refreshed and nourished, you will also
- Gain clarity on your values and the aspects of your life that are important and those areas where focus is lacking
- Clear, easy to use strategies to help you eliminate beliefs that hold you back
- Learn a tested, 6 simple step process to overcoming low self-esteem
- Gain a greater understanding of how we communicate and enhance your communication skills to prevent confusion and miscommunication
- Leave with a clear personal action plan that will enable you to achieve your goals moving forward so you can have the life you want
While the basic outline is the same, each retreat is tailored to the ladies attending, so you get the maximum benefit of the 3 days.
Here are a couple of reviews from our last retreat:
‘To explain the experience would not do it justice; it’s a journey you have to embark on yourself. I feel truly blessed to have walked this path.
For the first time ever, I feel truly loved by no-one more than myself. I am liberated free and empowered; I have replaced fear and anxiety with BOLD excitement.
Thank you BOLD Women. Thank you Sue, Tammy & Natalie.
Thank you me :o)’ Caroline August 2016
‘The retreat has been amazing with wonderful people, who shared themselves in such a way that I learned and felt safe. Experiencing Yoga was a beautiful, spiritual time and has inspired me to continue myself at home.
I feel cleansed and refreshed. I feel nourished in my body, with remarkable food as well as in my mind.
I have me again.
I feel I can now return to my family, my job and my friends, understanding myself better and loving myself’ Laura August 2016
