I’m gonna Be brave, taking a big leap today

so i’ve made a decision. Today I am going to join two new groups.
The first group is a singing group. it is run by an organisation called the next step. this organisation runs creative workshops for people with mental illness. they run a lot of different workshops, in art, singing, knitting and crochet, yoga, woodwork, dance, etc. a friend of mine goes to their singing workshop that runs each tuesday afternoon, and so today i thought i’d go along too with her. i love to sing, and maybe it will be fun.
the second group i am going to join is a peer support group. its called the friends group and is run by the organisation shine, that runs the basement club I go to. the friends group is run every tuesday evening from 5:15 until 7:15 pm. today I am taking the leap and joining it. i’ve wanted to join for months now. i’m finally ready today to take that first step and join.
I feel apprehensive, vulnerable, a little scared, but ready. Ready to face the challenges head on. Ready to step out of my comfort zone and hopefully make some new friends and connections.

  1. It’s great that you feel confident (even if you’re a bit hesitant) to join these two groups. I hope they work out really well and come to be something you look forward to taking part in over the next months/years. Do let us know how you get on xxx 🙂
