I get so nervous when it comes to meeting new people. I usually don't have a lot of anxiety, but when I am with strangers....oh, I don't care for that. I really want people to like me. I don't want to feel left out. Life is too full of that anyway.
I REALLY wanted to register for the first ever Five Minute Friday Retreat. I even sent the link to my husband, and he kept encouraging me to register. I told him, "But I've never done anything like that before." And he said, "Yeah, and I never went to Afghanistan before either." How do you argue with your Soldier who has been to war? You don't.
So I did it. I signed up. I'm all registered and almost giddy about it.
Its a new adventure for me. To go on a weekend getaway with a bunch of women to talk about life and writing. Oh, it sounds so great. I know I will meet some amazing people.
I do worry about whether or not they will like me. Ultimately, I know it will be ok. I am going out of my comfort zone. Meeting these amazing people in a beautiful place is going to be awesome. I can't wait.
Whether you are a newcomer or a regular, thank you for joining me this weekend for Five Minute Friday. Have a wonderful day!
