Blissdom 2012 I'm a New

I really don't want to write this post for so many reasons.  The biggest reason being if I am writing this, then it is over.  It probably means I am a little depressed.  The last three months have been spent preparing for this trip.  It is the highlight of my year - and it is only February.  I am sad.  My four days of fellowship, encouragement, transparency, parties, little men picking up my plate, free mochas, amazing workshops, captivating speakers, wonderful roomie, remembering to shower, actually wearing makeup, dressing like an adult, and learning like I was in college again are all over.  


Or did I leave Blissdom with a beginning?  I think I just might have!  Thru a group of amazing sisters I found a new belief in myself.  The artistic voice I have inside of me is important - a gift from God, and needs to be shared.  I once again found the strength to believe that despite the pitfalls, life is beautiful still. Everywhere I looked - I found inspiration.  Inspiration not by accident.  Imagine being surrounded by 699 women (a shout out to a couple of men) who believe in you with absolutely no prejudices?

That is my Blissdom. It was awesome, wonderful, super, encouraging, supportive, open, allowable, revealing, insightful, educational, hugging, peaceful, crazy, and a gift.

I will share the details soon there is just too much swimming around to pin it down.  Just know that I didn't just have a good time, I found a bit of a calling.  There are still some details to work out of that calling but that will happen on its' own.  For now I blog to encourage you just as I was blessed to be encouraged this past weekend.  Some gifts are meant to be shared.

  6. Yay! I'm so gladi met you at blissdom! I seriously think of you now I the mornings when I'm doing my Devon's. I look around and wonder , "where's Heather?" (I also wonder where the waterfall is and wonder why it isn't in my living room either. ) I know we only talked for moments each morning, but I feel so connected to you and I'm so looking forward to staying in touch with you. You have such a wam and caring heart.
    xoxo

  7. Heather, I can't tell you how nice it is to read that I am not the only one coming close to walking the edge of saddness after Blissdom. . . it is like being deflated.

    But I have to tell you that you simply made my weekend when you introduced yourself to me. It makes it all worth it to know that we connected!
