I'm left with the distinct thought that resonated through my head all weekend: "I am living the life I'm meant to live." The choices I've made, the community I'm building. I wish I could say the weekend was stress-free, that we all behaved well all the time - we didn't - but that really isn't the point, is it? All four of us, in different ways, challenged ourselves to try new things, to put ourselves out there. We got to know new friends, and old friends better than we did before. We stretched ourselves, learned things about ourselves, and each other, and feel all the more alive because of it.
