Things are not going too well at work, perhaps more in my head than in reality. But I do know that I can’t keep doing what I’ve been doing. The definition of insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results. I know in the past, the more connected I was to my spirituality, the more happiness I had in my life and it was really what was going on in my head. Soooo, I could really use some suggestions or ideas on what I can do to get more connected. I am not a church type of person, so that is not an option for me 4 years ago
I used to go to this retreat every year when I lived in chicago. I think I went 7 years straight. And since I’ve moved to California I’ve been back twice I think. But I’m flying out on Friday to go again this year. My bff and others I know will also be there.
I love this retreat. Silence is really golden. It is usually very restorative for me to go on these retreats. There is no talking from after dinner on Friday night until noon on Sunday. We all eat in the dining hall and there is no talking during meals. It amazing how much energy you can use trying to communicate with others. I always find this weekend to be one of taking stock of the year and focusing on what is important. 4 years ago
