Speaking Advocates: Shake It Off!
September 28, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The falling leaves of autumn provide an apt analogy to the process by which we dispel the habits, possessions, and relationships we have outgrown. And in doing so, we bring forth the opportunity for new growth to emerge when the next spring arrives. For us, this letting go can be a terrifying prospect; but within the seasons, it is integral to the cycles of death and rebirth, for the green buds and vibrant flowers of spring can only manifest on seemingly lifeless branches.
This month we invite you to speak about the moments where shedding the past became your only way forward, where casting the weight of the outgrown lightened your load just enough to carry on. What are the things you had to shake off, however haltingly? What new opportunities emerged in their place?
Our Opening Minds, Opening Doors Speaking Advocates group is free and meets the last Saturday of every month from 1-3 PM in Room 161 of the AGE of Central Texas Building. We welcome adults with disabilities who are interested in presenting stories and meeting other speakers. Email Eric Clow to RSVP or learn more.
You can also RSVP, invite friends, and follow our Facebook event page for updates.
