Older folks would say that some people come into our lives for a reason and a season. I agree. I made a decision for 2018 that I would meet and/or get around new and different people. It’s nothing out of the ordinary for me but this decision was a wee bit different: meet new people and hang out with them! So far, it’s turned out pretty well and I’ve been having the time of the life spending time with people I’ve known casually but never spent time with before as well as spending time with people I never knew.
The past month alone I’ve met some wonderful people for the first time who I’m almost certain will be friends for life. I’ve enjoyed every last one of them! None of this discounts the friends I have who I also love spending time with.
Sometimes we have to step out of our comfort zones and sometimes that means getting out and about, out of the introvert bubble, and meet new people. Yes, it’s true that others have so many qualities that we can learn from and some come into our lives to show us a better way of doing things. We just have to pick wisely and get out and live!
