Two of my goals for 2017 is to find more friends in my community and to get more involved. This week I took the first step for both of these goals. I joined the Women's Service League for my town. I've paid the dues and filled out the forms. It is all official!
I went to my first meeting this week. It was a committee meeting for the women who are helping with the Easter Egg Drop. This is going to be such a fun event and since Jack is at the perfect age for this I decided to help with this project.
I'm excited to serve my community in such a positive way. Plus, I might meet some cool new people. I have friends who live in other towns but none in my hometown anymore. I want to change this.
At the meeting this week I made a point to speak up and not just sit back. I'm a good planner naturally (and clearly very humble) so I wanted to make my ideas clear. I am also good at researching things quickly so I used those skills at the meeting also.
I went back and forth several times trying to decide if I really wanted to commit to this. In the end I decided I needed to do this if I was really ready to commit to reaching my goals in 2017. Of course, I was nervous at first but after a few minutes it was perfectly fine. Now I'm excited about all the ways I can serve my community and also getting to meet new people.
When was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone?
