Talking to the M last night, I asked her if she saw any difference in my behaviors. “Yes”, she replied, “You don’t blow up at people like you used to. You ask them questions about what they said or did.” GO30 success.
As a practicing Catholic, I look forward to the season of Lent. If compels me to do better, and to be better. Taking it one step further, I then like to incorporate that into my life. For me, GO30 is very similar, with the caveat of accountabililty to my F3 Brothers.
I’ll admit, there were times when I wanted to aske people if they were idiots. I wanted to react. Instead, I responded, and tried to understand what led them to the current situation. A result is I am even more approachable, and coupled with my reflective evening prayers, I am calmer.
I love the supportive accountability. I love the fact that when I stumble, I am not judged, but helped back up and told to get back in the fight.
I strongly suggest you give this a try. There’s no risk and nothing to lose, but everything to gain.
