For those who don’t know, I just returned from LetterWest Retreat. It was a 4 day retreat held in Moab, Utah, with 30 something creatives in one big house, complete with speakers, workshops and so much more. If you want to read more about LetterWest, head here.
I have to admit, I had to get over some pretty big imposter syndrome stuff to get here. Becca, the creator of Letterwest, had awarded me one of two scholarships available and the moment i was told I was going, I freaked out. I was honored and humbled and out of my mind excited. My second thought? Was I good enough to be there. Was I taking the place of someone else who deserved it more than me. And would anyone even like me when I was there, would I get along with people (I can sometimes be a bit of an acquired taste…)
But putting all that aside, I pushed myself, booked my flights and made the 16+ hour trip to SLC Airport. I was literally skipping through the terminal because I was so excited.
I met the group and we all started to get to know each other. So many new faces, new creatives, new stories and new personalities. I was overwhelmed and super tired from the flight, but I admit I was giddy.
A 4 hour bus trip later (I slept most of it), we arrived in Moab and were greeted with an incredible location. Surrounded by Moab rock, staying in a beautifully decorated villa, I was floored. This was going to be incredible.
