A reminder that next week is our last meeting before we take a break through August. Meetings begin again 1/9/2014. The routine of the evenings from September will change slightly. We will do a brief sharing session (if you want to there is no obligation to share) then we will discuss a problem that may have cropped up during the sharing session, or a particular topic. The meeting will close at 8:30 but we don't have to vacate the building until 9pm so this will give some time for folks to socialise with one another before leaving. So with our intermittent Monday meetings away from our usual venue it's going to be slightly different. I will be having a meeting with our Lets Talk contact next week if anyone has any questions let me know. Plus we are thinking of starting a group photo album. This will not be put on the web site it will just be kept at group meetings.
It was a time for reflection on Monday. I really enjoyed listening to the stories and life experiences of our group members. When the meeting is small it can give us more time and space to open up some observation on life and explore the paths we take and why we are where we are. It reminded me of a diagram I came across recently, which I found useful. I will share this with you:
"Through the opportunities we have in life we gain experience, through that experience we learn, through learning we open up more opportunities and so on. If we put fear after the chance of an opportunity we don't gain the experience, we don't learn and we limit further opportunities. Something to think about!
I have put the diagram in the Task Page
Hope the week is good to you all!
