Hi everyone!! :) Morgan and I are THRILLED to be back with you all again! I hope that you had a wonderful and blessed Christmas with family and friends, and your new year has started off really well!
If you are new to the Not Alone Series... welcome! Click here for all the deets and here to see previous posts and linkups. But, basically we are single, Catholic ladies getting together to chat every week about anything and everything that pertains to our singleness, growing in holiness and loving our Lord. :)
This week we are talking about ways in which we can grow/stretch right now that will effect our entire year. I wrote my goal post already, but one of my goals is one that I think will ultimately effect the whole of 2014... and that is: getting outside of my comfort zone. Being intentional about getting out of my comfort zone by doing things that I wouldn't normally do and trying new things.
Even though it's scary and nerve racking and worrisome and makes you sweat, getting out of your comfort zone is super beneficial, as well. You learn so much about yourself.... grooooow and streeeetch yourself in ways that you didn't think was possible. Which, then, can only help with your relationships. With God. With family. With friends... and a future spouse.
So... that is my ultimate goal for the year. I hope to achieve this by doing something new every month. My first few ideas off the top of my head are: learn to paddleboard, take an art class, shoot a gun. What other things? What ideas do you have?
And in what ways are you going to grow and stretch this year?! Let us know!
Thanks to those of you who gave us suggestions! As always, if you have something on your heart you want to discuss, please email Morgan or me! :) Annnnnd, get your link up on below!
What does authentic beauty mean to you and how can you be better at believing/accepting that you are, in fact, beautiful?
"Guess who's engaged?!"
Do you struggle with balancing the sting of hearing about yet another engagement with genuine excitement? What emotions come into play? What virtues do you enlist to help with it all?
Chastity: A Choice
Living chastely (not just abstinence) is a choice. Have you ever had to defend your choice to live out chastity? If not, why do you choose chastity?
If only I knew then what I know now...
What would you tell your former self about being single if given the chance? What have you learned that you wish you could tell your younger self?
