I am sitting in my hotel in the Dominican Republic right now, watching the Weather Channel. What If finished up yesterday, and I am supposed to be in New York City right now. The universe had other plans, in the form of a blizzard. Of course, there are worse places to be stuck.
This week was nonstop and internet was impossible to find, but I finally splurged on it tonight so I could monitor my flight. I need your good vibes to get home tomorrow, if you don’t mind.
I so desperately want to tell you about this week, about these people, about what I learned, and how my life changed. But when I start to describe it… it just doesn’t come out right. I think I still need a little bit of time to process the whole thing. What I will say is that my whole world changed in four days, and I am not exaggerating when I say I am coming home a completely different person.
I have been shaken to my core and challenged. I have sobbed and laughed and connected with people in an incredibly authentic, honest way. And I never, ever want to forget this feeling.
