Hey guys, sorry I’ve been away for so long. I just got back from a retreat with my school called “Kairos”. I go to a catholic school so yea it was a catholic retreat but let me tell you something: Jesus barely made an appearance. He kinda said hey, love you, cya. That’s not a bad thing, it’s just a precedent to the next thought: If you ever get the chance, GO. ON. KAIROS. I know that many people outside (and inside) catholic school are not religious. But that’s the whole thing: Kairos is not really about religion. Even though it translates as “Lord’s Time”, and there is prayer involved, it’s not really about being Christian, or catholic for that matter. There were Buddhists, atheists, and non-catholics on this retreat. As long as you are respectful of anyone’s point in life, then you are welcome. Kairos is way more about self epiphanies and personal connections than it is about giving your life to God. For instance, my self revelation was that I actually matter to people and the world. I know that sounds weird to say, but I never really believed that. For a few months now I’ve been emitting a fake self confidence to try to convince myself and others that I am worth something. But now I actually know for real that I am. When it comes to Kairos everyone has they’re own secret selves that revive. Such as my self-confidence, and my new honesty with myself. I look at myself as I really am and not who I want to be. That’s the other thing. Kairos teaches you to be open and honest, qualities that the world obviously doesn’t value much anymore. But we should, and we should bring them back into the world. And that’s what I’ve been doing for the past few days. If you have any questions about Kairos or how I came to be the new person I am, please inbox me. I would love to tell you everything.
