Hope everyone had a very Happy and Joyous Holiday Season and may 2010 be filled With Health and Success!

Let’s get the New Year started off right! Yes, it’s that time of the year again, time to make our resolutions that for some reason are so hard to keep. Well, how about a new one this year? Anyone who hasn’t attended a meeting yet knows exactly what I’m talking about.  That’s right, “step out of your comfort zone”, come out and share your story, or just come to “hang out” and listen. What better way to start off the New Year then to meet and greet a new friend or friends that would love to hear and share with you. We all can be nervous about a “new challenge” and the fear that comes with it, but what better, more comfortable place to give it a shot. I can only speak for myself when I say this chapter, these meetings have been more fulfilling then I could have ever imagined. I want to again say “Thank You” to everyone for a great 2009 full of amazing meetings and moments.  It’s really true that time flies when you’re having fun because this will be our 14th Meeting!

Last meeting our “intros” became “our meeting” because there was so much love and support for everyone’s stories. Their seemed to be a common theme in the room of people “having a tough week or month,” and what was so great to see and hear was how quickly our “family” rose to the occasion with comforting words of wisdom and encouragement. It’s great to see and learn more about everyone each time we meet. It was awesome to hear someone mention they had missed the last two meetings, and how they were “glad to be back”. Someone else spoke of tough times during a presentation and how emotions took over. These are a just a few of the many stories and great conversations that always seem to spark courageous moments that touch us all.

What’s even more amazing is that at every meeting we welcome new faces to our growing family.  Anyone “on the fence” should really give it a go. START 2010 OFF WITH A BANG!

The meetings just keep getting bigger and BETTER! Be supportive while being supported. YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

We look forward to seeing everyone at the next meeting.
