Be winning and worldly!

Be winning and worldly and well-bred. Do things you love to do. Go out, explore, take chances, take risks, let your hair down (so to speak). Make new friends: just say “hello” to someone new. Strike up a conversation at the gym, in line at the grocery store, at the shuttle stop, over the fruit table. You don’t know where it will lead, but you have already established a common ground: you’re both there.

In my family we have a 3′ rule: if you’re within 3′ of us, we’ll say hello and talk to you. I invite you to share that rule.

For me, I’ve been doing this for the past six months, since moving to my new city {and repatriating}, and it’s a slow process. I will not give up! I’ve made a few connections and hope to nurture those relationships into real friendships.

Go out, be bold, make friends. Make this a great day, an awesome life…because it is.
