MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR "BOUNDARIES"

For several weeks starting tonight, we will focus the first hour of our meetings viewing and discussing the popular video series "Boundaries," based on the book of the same name. Everyone's always welcome, and RSVPs are not required. Child care is available. Please click "About us" for information on our group and our schedule each week.

While RSVPs are not required, it would be great if you'd click "Yes" if you're coming. That makes our group more visible on meetup, and encourages others to come.

Child care is normally available for our Monday meetings. More information.

More about Boundaries

Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives:

• Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances

• Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions

• Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others

• Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator

Good people often focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask:

• Can I set limits and still be a loving person?

• What are legitimate boundaries?

• What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries?

• How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money?

• Aren't boundaries selfish?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
