We then revisited last month’s ‘Family Traits’ topic - Betty and Neville shared their stories followed by a small group activity prompted by selecting a trait from a pack of Strengths cards.
After the break fascinating stories were shared on our March topic ‘I Broke It’ – reflective stories about all the things we can break, from broken head gaskets miles from anywhere, to broken nails, high heels, ankles, backs, hearts and more. There were quirky stories and stories which broke our hearts.
Our April topic is ‘Faking It’ , a topic which resulted in some enlightening stories a few years ago. The brief? ‘Have you ever inflated your credentials to land a coveted job, told a silly lie to save face in front of a new acquaintance, or felt well and truly out of your comfort zone when you tried something new. Perhaps faking it helped you gain the experience or tools necessary to bring about real change, whether you were pretending to the world or just deluding yourself. How did you feel at the time, and how do you feel about it now? Did your fakery ever get found out? Did you surprise anyone, even yourself?’
