Achieved My Goal - Kimberly - Kansas City, Missouri, USA

Hello Sunny,
Thank you for your words of encouragement. It made my day.
I achieved one of my goals last Monday!
A bit of history first.
I've been shy all of my life. In 1989 I quit my first job after the first day and stayed in the house for the next nine years. I pushed myself to get out and find a job to help my mother pay the bills.
I worked in fast food for one month. Housekeeping for three years. Now I am a central service tech(dealing with sterile supplies and instrumentation)
I went back to school to be a surgical technologist. When my instructor informed me that I was no longer in the class because of my grades, she added something else that was 10 times worse than failing. She talked to me about being shy and quiet. It felt like Id just been knocked down and kicked in the stomach for good measure. She made me feel like I was fundamentally flawed and unsuited for the profession.
After a few weeks of crying and cursing, I found a website on how to overcome shyness.
I set a few goals.
Last Monday, I went to a religious commemoration service. This was a VERY BIG DEAL for me. I have been wanting to attend this church for about seven years. I kept putting it off because of fear.
The day before, I used positive thinking to push back the very negative thoughts I was having.
I went and it was a very pleasant experience.
I'm going to go set some more goals for the week.
Have a great day!

Additional Comment -- From Sunny :)

Kim ...

This is HUGE.

Congratulations to YOU, Kim!
I'm SO Proud of You.

"10 times worse than failing ..."
that sounds so painful.

Even though I tell people every day that "failure" is a good thing,
I myself am also subject to the horrible feelings it creates
and I also have an impulse to AVOID it.

YOU ... are such an inspiration!
Thank YOU so MUCH for sharing your story with me.
I feel deeply honored to hear it.

GOOD - GREAT - SUPER WOW - for YOU!!!! :)

Please also tell me of the website that helped you so much.
It would be nice for me to see.
Thank YOU again for writing.

Much LOVE and JOY to YOU, Kim!
Way to GO!
