I joined to support my friend and found out how much I loved being there, so I stayed. This has become a major part of my life now.
Financial of course and then I could use some more security in myself. I tend to joke things away to keep me from thinking someone might be serious and getting hurt in the process. I need to totally believe in me, not just partially.
Greatness to me is being the best person I know, learning more to become better, helping those who need our help-emotionally as well as any other way they may need it, and being one who can show others you can survive the tragedies of life without it bringing you to a total breaking point.
There are so many things: my family (and yes we are not perfect and we tend to bicker), my life (for this group has shown me how to take it back), a wonderful mentor (Paul Ortigoni), all the new friends I have made who truly care, and a healthier me than I was before I met this man and became part of these groups.
Act, don't react, reaction causes pain and we tend to live in pain mode. And let the past go. It happened. Live right now. Now is not hurtful, the pain comes from remember the hurts of the past and the fears of the future. Just be.
I am just a normal woman who was in need of a life...AND I FOUND IT...here!
This is such a great place!!!! The group has gotten larger and larger each week. Between the motivational lessons that have helped me in my personal life as well as Improv and the many friends I have gotten to know...this place is friggin' awesome. They welcome anyone and everyone. There is no judgement, not towards others or towards your self...just total acceptance, And the theme nights are amazing in how we come together and enjoy being with each other and having fun as well as learning. This is my highlight every week. AND they have free workout sessions on Saturdays which has enabled me to lose over 100 pounds in the last year. And they support charity work under I AM 50 Million. They have it all.
