Well, I have never tried to do anything like this before but they say the best way to grow is just to get out of your comfort zone. I do know a lot about that. Since being in Celebrate Recovery I have been pushed and dragged out of my comfort zone many times. The first push was to jump into my second step study as a leader. I barely knew what I was doing but my sponsor kept saying it would all be okay. You know it was. I was scared but no one knew how scared except me. Actually now that I think about that may not have been the first time I was out my comfort zone it was just one of the big ones. First was being asked to do something in large group. The reason that was so hard was I was still in denial. So, my introduction was very scary because I did not have anything I struggled with except maybe some people pleasing. So what was I to say after I am a grateful believer? Uuuh, uuuh, that could be embarrassing. Of course there were many others being a sponsor for the first, teaching a lesson, being a part of T.E.A.M. The list could go on and on.
But the bottom line is it is all worth it. I would do it all again because now I have a family of believers that know who I am and they still love me and accept me. When you take off the mask you find out that there are a lot of people just like you. What a relief! So, I say all that to say this GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE! It really is worth it. Come that first night meet all of us who are just like you then come at least four more times and you will not want to leave.
Well, I guess that concludes my first blog. That wasn't too bad. Maybe I can do this.
