"Part of the Outward Bound trip is to spend two days alone on a beach in the Everglades. It’s a time for reflecting, learning, meditating. I grew so much spiritually and emotionally, realizing for the first time that changing and adapting goals is a part of life, that you need to be open because sometimes life doesn’t always take us where we expect to go."
