“Being in a group is so much more powerful than working on my “stuff” alone. Some of my CDFs were predictable, while others were not. I attribute that to the process of the workshop and the input from Vanessa and others.
My biggest takeaway was that I’m a “glass-half-empty” person. That blindsided me. I pride myself on wanting to “work on myself” but realized I often don’t appreciate what I have, and I see the world through the lens of what’s not working. That has stuck with me every day since the workshop, and I’m working on truly appreciating what I have. It’s made a huge difference in my moods, outlook, and how I view the world each day.”
