Charing First Al-Anon meeting Tuesday

I can't believe I said I would chair a meeting. What was I thinking. I am the youngest in my Al-Anon group. They are going to be looking at me. I hate being the center of attention. My topic will be Self-esteem because that is what is very hard for me. I am trying to work on step 4 but I got scared and stopped. I will wait for a little while and then try again. I know they will not judge me but it is still hard. I think I will do a good job it should be asmall group because it is close to Christmas. Wish me luck.
Love,
Shana

And yes, that is an excellent choice of a topic! How are you doing today? Nervous? Don't be. I think it is so awesome that you are getting such an early start on you recovery! Chairing a meeting! Fantastic. Just remember to keep breathing.
Love and hugs,

Shana,
You rock! You are an example to others. I am so proud of you. Even though you are scared, you don't let it stop you from trying things. You have come so far. I am sure that your group is very proud of you too. Let us know how it goes. Hugs, Magic

Shana,
You'll do just fine. There is nothing that is impossible, including being able to chair this meeting wonderfully. Of course, you'll be nervous, but your recovery will shine through, and you'll do a great job.

Hugs,
Trisha

Hello everyone. I chair the meeting tonight there was only 8 people there that was a relief for me. I did it. I did a great job. I comented three or four times tonight now just on the page I read but the other pages people read and i have never done that before. I told them why I pick self-esteem and I really shared how I was feeling about things going on now that are affecting myself esteem. I am going to chiar next week too and i am kind of looking forward to doing it again. Thanks for all your guys support.
LOve,
Shana

It always helps me to remember that there's a Higher Power in the room and I ain't it! My sponsor reminds me that, when I'm fearful going into any situation, I can send HP ahead of me to create a safe place.

It's been my experience since the beginning that meetings take care of themselves. All I need to do as chairperson is to just show up!

Thanks for doing service, Shana! Keep up the good work!
