The end came all too quickly. I can't believe that these girls with whom I shared all of these special moments with would all be going their separate ways. An exhausted, sore Cortney dragged her butt to the morning yoga session. There we had a special yoga class led by Adriene (from Yoga with Adriene). As we meditated on the weekend and focused on having a heart of gratitude, I couldn't help but cry (MAJOR estrogen overload). After Lainey and I packed up our things, I waited for the line to die down so I could say good bye and thank you to my trainers. Karena and Katrina were so thoughtful in waiting for hours until everyone got to say good bye. I thanked them for Tone It Up, for the community they've created, and for helping me to have the confidence I never knew I had. Their sincerity and genuine hearts blew me away, and I am forever grateful.
Just several months before the retreat, I was wondering if I should go. It's so expensive. I would have to get a sub at work. I have never actually met anyone there in person. I'd have to travel alone. There were plenty of reasons not to go. But I went and I loved every single minute of it. I now have friends all across the country. I grew in ways I never imagined. My heart is full and my soul is inspired.
