I sat at the side of the road up the hill from the Temple of Athena Pronaia at Delphi crying and frozen because I wasn’t sure if I could handle the heights.

It was one of those moments when I had to dig deep and face my fears. I wouldn’t say I’ve overcome them but I didn’t let them stop me.

I came to Greece to see three places: Eleusis, Knossos, and this spot right here. I’m so glad I came!

I don’t have words for how powerful this day has been. I called my mom from a bench overlooking the mountains and told her I’d done it.

I feel so connected to this landscape (even if it freaking freaks me out sometimes). And I’m proud of my introverted, highly sensitive, self for doing this!

Stacy and I have grown closer, and I feel like our relationship is stronger than it’s ever been. We’ve been using all of the tools we have at our disposal every step of the way.
