I find it hard to make friends these days. It’s because I’m just not out there. I’m 35 years old and I’m self-employed. I don’t have children and I don’t live in the town I grew up in. I just don’t see people. I need to get more involved with my community. Last year I met a bunch of fantastic and inspiring new friends through the Handmade Festival.
In March I started taking weekly yoga classes with the goal of relaxing but I’m thinking the side benefit is that it’s another way for me to new people. Darren is wildly supportive of me making more friends. He’s always encouraging me to go to events attended by like-minded people, oh how I love like-minded people!
I guess the other thing too is that I have a business. I don’t have a job, I have a business. With no employees. It’s actually quite hard to not work, and even harder to set aside time to do things with people other than Darren. Does anyone else feel this way? It’s all consuming.
Which leads to this week’s listography list:
What I look for in a friend
- someone who is creative
- someone who can think outside the box
- someone who is funny
- someone who gets my sense of humour
- someone who is honest
- someone who I can trust
- someone who is kind
I could go on and on about interests but I don’t really think it’s relevant nor mandatory. As long as you’re honest, kind, and true to yourself, you’ve got my ear. Thank you for following along with this week’s The List Love Book Club! I’d love to hear how you meet new people in the comments section below.
