I am not one to reach out and make friends. Naturally, I am shy. But I am working on it. I mean when I was around people at school, I did eventually reach out to people that I thought would be good to know. It was easy enough at work because I was with female co-workers all day and real estate agents that came in the office on a regular basis. I have a small crowd of close friends. I did have more that I felt that I knew well enough but I went through seasons of change as in getting married and having my babies, so these certain people felt mutually that it wasn’t mean tot be stay friends. And I was the first of many. Because I didn’t want to put my life on hold for these people. I still wanted to live out my dream of love, marriage and kids. I got really blessed that I found the love of my life at 17 and married him at 22.
Anyway, I do want to reach out to new people now that I’ve finished the seasons of having babies and just now watching them grow up. I’ve reached out to a few moms at my boys’ school. I have been close to one mom for the last two years. She’s awesome. I did feel that nudge that I needed to have more friends in my life, especially who are invested in the Christian faith. I went to my church’s mom group yesterday am. It was really good. I mean there are like 2-3 women around my age, and then the rest were older. I got deeper with my faith because of it. And the meetings are like twice a month. I was still shy a little bit during the get-together, but I know I will come out of it more as more meetings take place. I love the following scripture.
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline” (2 Timothy 1:7).
I know I will get to know more people as once I pursue photography more. It’s hard because not a lot of people know that I want to be a photographer and take really good pictures. But I’m just having patience and I know that time come in God’s powerful hands.
