I’ve found that in the Momentum support circle I’ve been part of for the past three years. The group has become very important to me for a number of reasons. First, my life has become much more organized and my level of productivity has increased enormously.
More importantly, I’ve formed the habit of focusing on what’s positive; what works, and consequently, I walk around now with a real sense of gratitude for everything I have in life. Truly feeling gratitude, in my experience, is a great gift, allowing me to notice and focus on what I love and bring more of that into all the different areas of my life. Most importantly, for me, is that I feel connected.
As a single woman with a very small family, I’ve always had two or three very close friends, who are dear to me and who support me when and if they can (one of them is mentally challenged and so has limited ways in which he can be supportive). I still have these friends and always will, but in addition, I have a group of responsible and committed men and women of all ages – all of whom have different things to offer, but who have several things in common.
Those things are a desire to grow and become better people, a commitment to themselves and to the group and a true desire to support and be there for each other. In other words, a group of people who, over time, become closer and know each other more intimately, and who are learning the types of support each of us need to live the lives we want to live and to become the people we want to become.
