- Story: Engaged
Your mom, only a few feet away, finishes a conversation with a staff member, turns to you and says…
“Honey, you ready to go?”
Honey. She hasn’t called you that since you were a kid. That feels like a million years and a thousand arguments ago. There are fewer arguments these days, if any. Granted, you’ve mostly talked to your mom with letters and phone calls in recent months, but your communication has changed. So much has changed over the months you’ve been here.
With each week at Momentum and every day during Graduation weekend, things are getting better. You know you’re happier. You feel like you now have a sense of direction, too. In this time, your relationship with your parents has definitely improved.
Your mom is more patient and understanding; and you feel like you are, too.
She puts her arm over your shoulder. “Let’s get going”, she says. You tell your mom, “Just a minute, please.”
You turn back to your friend. You feel the tears welling up. You’re not sure when the next time will be you’ll see your new friend.
Your friend grabs you for a hug– you never used to like hugs, either, yet another thing that has changed– and she says “see you soon”. You hope you do see her soon.
You turn towards your mom and begin to walk the path back to the car. You can’t wait for what paths the future has in store for you.
Make this your story.
How You Get Re-Engaged…
At first, the idea of Trails Momentum might seem intimidating or even overwhelming. Change is hard.
Trails Momentum is a choice for change; a choice to engage. You start with a first step of learning more which becomes the step of enrolling. From here, you have to make the choices to try; and then try again.
We have created a program specifically to help you get started and help you find the motivation to keep going. We love doing this work as we’ve seen its benefits in those who came before you.
We’ll work with building your self-esteem and helping you set goals you achieve. Along the way you will make friends. Our work with your family separate and with you will help repair and reconnect.
