Sometimes we need to get out of our usual surroundings, out of our element for the shift to happen, to break our patterns.

Folks have been asking me, “What was your favorite part of the trip?”

It’s hard to answer initially. The wildlife was amazing, meeting new people and learning about new culture was incredible, the unique experiences of camping on a game reserve were unforgettable, the abject poverty and oppression were heart wrenching and eye opening. But ultimately, my biggest takeaway is who I became. I returned a different human.

This journey began as a spiritual quest and culminated in coming to know myself in a new way. Having made friends and amends with my inner child, I have new interior peace, strength, and courage. I feel powerful and unstoppable. I’ve seen glimpses of bits of these elements but this is solid and permeates my bones. It’s primal and feels like a homecoming to a time I can’t consciously remember but my body instinctively knows is where we belong; a return to center, to the real me.

And it feels freaking amazing.

Welcome home, Wen and little Wen. It’s been a long time coming.

Wishing you all a safe, healthy, and happy New Year. May your dreams come true. And thank you for following along with me. Much more to come!
