*I wanted to hear Joe's thoughts about the trip so here he is!*
India = Wow, I mean wow.
Originally supposed to be trip I would only hear (and dream) about, my sulking in Houston quickly morphed into an 8 day visit into the controlled chaos, some jaw dropping yoga, and hanging with EE’s fellow campers (aka a super fun variety of fit & focused peeps).
I am not quite sure where to even start or how to best explain some of the things I saw so I will defer most of that to the wife’s tongue and the snaps of her lens to help explain.
One thing is for sure though – everywhere I went, looked, & turned - I was constantly reminded that I need to be more thankful and appreciative of everything. Some of those areas are:
- Thankful that Erik & Rachel were so generous showing us the in’s & outs of this trip. From our Q&A sessions to relaxing at their place before the car picked us up – they were always there for us.
- Thankful for Yannis, Erik, & Rachel helping me bring my practice where it is today.
- Thankful that my wife is brave and willing enough to take an out of her comfort zone risk (more like a “planned leap of faith”) by taking this trip in the first place. I love that about her.
- And thankful for the deep network of family and friends that we have. Though I am not sure they know or care, the thousands of India natives I have seen will likely never have many of the opportunities that I am so fortunate to have. I believe the root of those opportunities come, build, and thrive from a solid base of family and friends (aka “our crew!”)
Enough pining from me already as I must now get on it like a bonnet with my practice. I have tons to do before we go back in two years!
