Some of you may know that I am a shy person and do take a while to warm up to people, or do new things. I am most comfortable at home in front of my laptop watching videos or writing my blog posts. However, with the recent death of my lovely Grandad I have come to the decision to start living again and stop putting decisions off.
I have toyed with the idea of going to church for a long time, but always got a bit nervous wondering what people might think. You get the impression that church isn’t something that a lot of young people do.
But honestly, who cares? If that something has the potential to make you happy, don’t let what society thinks stop you (you know, within reason, obviously don’t do anything illegal).
I used to go to church as a teenager. I was part of a choir for a while. But as life settled in and I got older, my church going days dwindled into nothing. I stopped going all together when I moved to London.
So I went to Holy Communion on Sunday and really enjoyed myself. Everyone was really welcoming and non-judgmental. They kept me right with the order of things and didn’t take the micky out of my terrible singing. It’s how I imagined church would be. So I really am thinking about going back next week. Yes my shifts will get in the way during some weeks, but that’s life.
Has there been anything that you have wanted to try recently but got put off by one thing or another. My advise is to go ahead and do it, because life is short and you never know what lies in wait.
Thanks for reading guys, and have a lovely day.
