I am still finding it hard to describe the way I feel after last weeks 4 day photography retreat I attended in stunning Byron Bay – so many words come time mind – inspired, grateful, energised, blessed, hopeful are just a few. The retreat was so different to what I was expecting but so much more than I ever could have hoped for.
The week was about so much more than learning new photography skills – it was about life skills. I feel I need to tell you about what we did but it would just not do it justice – yes the food was amazing, the location was spectacular, the company was wonderful but I have walked away from this experience feeling like I have discovered so much more about myself.
Sheye has the most incredible way of bringing the best out in people – she is a master at teaching you to be yourself – your best self. She is gracious, kind and gentle combined with unassuming confidence and professionalism. Nothing is set in stone yet nothing is forgotten or left untouched – the perfect mix of carefree and focus. She truly has one of the great souls I have had the pleasure of meeting and just being around her makes you feel calm and excited all at the same time.
Our other beautiful teachers during the week were Fran and Hailey – the way these amazing ladies beared their soul and showed us how to turn personal projects into works of art that brought us all to tears.
There was so much laughter, new friendships and unexpected discoveries but most of all a new sense of fearlessness. There are no wrong decisions just different directions. With faith, confidence and a sense of self the direction you chose will be the right one for you.
I cannot finish this post by also saying a special thank you to my hubby who held the fort while I took off for this week of self discovery – for allowing me to keep finding new ways to express my creative desires – for allowing me to keep changing the direction of my business so that my heart is happy and I am feeling fulfilled. Thank you my love …
P.S. I will share some more photo’s from an actual real shoot we did tomorrow.
