Back early in the year, I did the thing.
I bought expensive camping and show tickets for my favorite musical festival/gathering experience. It’s been the case that I’ve done this for the last five years of my life, and will hopefully be continuing to do so.
I have yet to regret this decision. Every time is, well, Above & Beyond.
Above & Beyond Group Therapy Weekender at the Gorge Amphitheater has been, and continues to be, a transformative experience of destination, magic, music, community, and higher-vibrations of humanity, unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. Each time I’ve gone to this event, my mind expands, my heart grows larger, and my appreciation for the life I’m living grows exponentially deeper.
This last weekend was no exception.
It was also the last big event weekend I would be spending with my now-ex-husband. It was also the first big event weekend I would be spending with my-now-present boyfriend. While it was a little weird to be sharing space with both elements of my life, then and now, it worked seamlessly. Ray ended up having a really good time, David and I grew so much closer and connected. The music and vibes and crowds all wove together to make it a peaceful, enjoyable transition between these parts of my life, and it took my breath away each time I thought about it.
I’m going to be enjoying the come-down from this experience for days on end, recognizing that this means my new life is starting, and that I can and will make progress and changes that lead me to an even more authentic life, boldly loving and dancing all the way along the path.
