Step back and Retreat

I have been gone for awhile and I used that time to reflect and think about things. I cannot share positivity if I myself am unhappy. Things were unclear for me for the past few weeks and I needed time to reflect. All the sorrow and doubt ended after our retreat. Everything was clear for me after our retreat, when we chose to let go of the resistance and have faith that everything is possible with patience and perseverance. We left all our problems in the retreat house.

So why do we need to retreat after some time? The world is a battlefield. We are the soldiers and it's impossible that there wouldn't be challenges given to us. There will always be problems to encounter. Like soldiers, when they feel like things are getting messed up, they retreat and go back when they're ready. In life, we need to step back and look at things clearly. We shouldn't force things to be fixed when we don't fully understand the situation. We need to give ourselves time and space to reflect in life.

In this post, I'd like to share to you what happened in pictures and captions.

Here's a picture of our whole section. I'm glad we're complete. (I'm the one wearing the light blue jacket). They're really kind and fun to be with even though we have the nerd stereotype.

The retreat started by introducing ourselves and grouping ourselves into 5 randomly. Our team name was "Capteam America" since the guy in the middle is addicted to everything that's Captain America. I believe that there's a reason why we're groupmates. All throughout the retreat, we shared everything within our group. We affirmed each other, listened to each other and comforted each other. Everything each other said was respected. 

Here's me with my bestfriend for 5 years already. I trust her so much in everything. I'm so thankful that she's my friend. She always listens to me and she's always there for me. I seriously love her so much. 

I'm so thankful to have friends like them because whenever I'm down, the never fail to make me happy. They're always there for me and I won't ever forget them even after I graduate high school. 

That's the only pictures I've gathered but the retreat house was so magical and I'm in love with it. Everything was like a video game. The chapel was so pretty and the wind was so gentle and calm. The stars were so wonderful and I wanted to be there forever. More retreats to come!
