A quote that was sent to me recently via email from a friend, that rings so true to me and serves as a gentle reminder for me. I wanted to share it with you, to do the same.
After sharing blog; “Going outwards and inwards,” in yesterday’s post, I have not stopped wondering about creating a D.I.Y. Retreat at Home for myself. But I wondered, could it be possible? After Googling the possibility, I realised it is possible and as well as suggestions at doing this at home, there were also suggestions of booking a hotel room and having your retreat there, taking what you need for your proposed retreat in your hotel room etc…
There are lots of help and advice out there to create your own retreat at home, whether it be a day, a weekend, or a week. Obviously, if you can manage to go on a retreat, just for a one-off experience, then there is nothing wrong in that and it would be a great experience, but it can be very expensive. But if you do it in the way the blogger did, that I shared in yesterday’s post, then having a lovely setting like she had and creating your own retreat of what you plan to do while there, certainly works out cheaper.
Has any readers done their own D.I.Y. retreat at home?
I would like to do a blog share and the blog I am sharing is, “Going outwards and inwards.” I have not long been following this blog, which is written by Nicole Dunn. You will find more about her, here on her “about” page.
What I wanted to particularly share on my blog, was these three posts of hers:
I found these posts, which she shared her solo retreat over three posts that she created for herself very interesting and inspiring. A solo retreat is something I have always wanted to do, whether planed by an organiser, or this case, created by oneself an appealing idea, as it would be an experience on something I have never done before.
Have you ever been on a solo retreat? Did you go on one already organised, or like this lady, did you create you own? Please share you experiences.
It doesn’t matter if you blog or not. It could be just voicing it to a friend, or voicing it publicly, but it does help you to heal.
After recently going with my gut instinct, because my gut instinct in the past as usually been right, even when I used to ignore it at one time. I wasn’t going to ignore it again and so I followed my gut instinct of dropping the volunteer place that did not use me. I thought I’d share a quote on the subject of following your gut instinct.
