Friends are great. Everybody needs friends who they can share with and grow with. Imagine, no don’t imagine, but feel your connectivity with all things and all people in this Universe. We are all one. I am you. You are me. We just haven’t been introduced yet.
The other day I had the opportunity to meet with some people that I didn’t even know through a invitation my daughter received for a birthday party of one of the girls at the same day care. It was a chance for me to get out of the house and speak with other adults (oh so grateful). Anyway, my three year old wasn’t as enthusiastic even though it was a chance for her to play with her friends in a new environment. You know that little ones have a mind of their own but I wasn’t going to let that stop me from going.
Meeting new people is a challenge for some and there is always a fear of not being accepted even though we are sometimes not aware of this. Do not let this fear stop you from expressing yourself as we always want to look good in front of strangers and don’t forget that they may be feeling exactly the same as you. After all, we do have the appearance of being human.
Let your light shine and reach out to be inspired by the things you do not even know exist yet. Live life as you want to and not as you have to. Next time you are introduced to someone new, give them your hand and appreciate that you are connecting with another part of yourself.
Here’s to new friends!
