It’s amazing how many wonderful people you meet traveling, even if it’s a few miles from your own front door. If you travel to a new country, you can also learn about a different culture or how to speak a new language. I’ll guarantee that you’ll come home with names and addresses of new pen pals.
How would you like to find new friends who are into enlightenment and spiritual well being? Step into the light and sign up for a yoga or tai chi class. Aaah! Just the sound of the word, 'yoga', doesn't it make you relaxed?
If you’re bored and fed up with your current job, go hunting for a new one. A new environment holds magical possibilities. Go shopping, even if you have no money, browse and window shop.
You may find a new friend in a pet store or the local humane society.
Which reminds me . . . lots of dog lovers will tell you to just get a dog, go to the park or the beach and watch what happens! (Instant friends and so much fun! ) Your cat wouldn’t be very happy at the beach anyway.
The golden ticket is asserting yourself. It’s easier than you think to bag that shy side of your personality and start opening up to people. Talk to strangers who are friendly in appearance. It makes waiting in line go so much faster.
Last but not least, smile at someone when you pass them on the street and by all means, smile back at someone who has smiled at you- what a gift!
