…and you can still have a great experience

Sometimes things don't go as planned

Have you ever wanted to fully experience something, but for whatever reason, not been able to experience it in the way you pictured it? Last year at this time I wanted to be in Asheville, North Carolina, with everyone else in the program I had just joined. It was the first retreat for most of us – the energy and excitement was high.
