First Friday Fun Night: An Evening of Discovery!
That is was for sure! Small group, but we all learn from everyone. We ALL have so much to share!
We started by just taking some time to just feel comfortable, and socialize as we felt compelled to do. For some, it meant for others to help start the conversation, wait a bit after asking a question or starting a thought. That is what I so want for many of the folks I come in contact with….The “PAUSE” or time to wait. It is ok to say I need a moment.
It is ok to not have an answer right away. Ideas, aspirations will come within your own time….not those imposed by others. Wait……you can almost see the ideas being generated in those beautiful brains. Wait…..don’t answer for them, they might just tell you NO, that’s not what I want or intended to say.
To feel the relaxed atmosphere for those to just be themselves….we got to talk about finding the “ME”. Who is that person, what are there choices and interests? By completing a leisure inventory, we found that many had desires and interests that would be so much fun to develop.
With the expertise of those in attendance to support, nurture, nudge and encourage, I feel that we were able to accomplish what we set out to do! We provided an opportunity for discovery. This will continue to develop through continued leisure opportunities and participation.
Looking forward to our next few gatherings:
