Get Out, Do More

One of my goals this year is to get out and interact with people more often. Its actually a two-fold goal when I factor in a more active spiritual path.

Just before Mom passed last year I finally joined a local group – Acadiana Spiritual Association, or ASA for short – to expand my circle. (No pun intended.) I’d been a solitary for years, and decided it was then or never. 

In August I went to General Assembly as just an ordinary member. Two of the Council members were stepping down and I was asked to step up. So, I did. Fast forward to 1/18…I was confirmed for the Council and declared Secretary. Apparently I said I like to organize stuff and that was that. 

Being part of ASA and on the Council will give me the social interaction I need as well as set me firmly back on my spiritual path. I’ll be around people with similar interests, and have a voice in what activities are planned. There are many people out there in the same boat and those are the ones I want to help through this role. 

In August there was discussion about providing information to those who are curious about non-mainstream religions or just starting their paths. The last is something I can relate to more recently than the other Council members, and outreach is something I’m good at. 

2017 is certainly shaping up to be an interesting year.
