Self-Care Challenge (Day 124): Making New Friends

Belize Sunrise2, 01.16.2016, 900For me, keeping a wide, diverse circle of friends has always been one of the best parts of living.

Engaging in interesting conversations with near-strangers gives me the ability to see the world through a different set of eyes.

Recently, a relatively new friend introduced me to one of her friends–someone she thought I would have a lot in common with.

And she was right.

The three of us gathered to share a meal and a lot of laughs, but we also shared an endless number of uplifting ideas. 

We talked about how to connect with other forward-thinking women, ways that we could help support those women, and how we can use our unique strengths to make a greater contribution to the world. I love these kinds of new friends–those who enjoy talking about ideas rather than other people. Gossip accomplishes nothing.

Making new friends expands our world because it stretches the way we think about the world and our role in it.

When was the last time you made a new friend?
