How do you go about meeting people?
Most of the people I meet are through my friends or coworkers. Usually in a five minute or so conversation..and then some discussion with my friends I pretty well can size up on whether I can continue a friendship. It's been very rare that I've met someone through a friend that I don't like.
In the past few weeks I've met some people (either online or face to face) and I think I have to admit that even though I'm almost 42 (yeah I can admit it) I'm still pretty shy when it comes to talking to people. I guess it's hard to explain but the easiest way to do it is that I'm really not a fan of rejection. I don't know why but I take those things personal.
When I meet someone I really make an investment in that person to get to know them. I think that's probably why I can meet people and how people are attracted because honestly I really do care.
Is this true? Well, onto something else...
The Seminole Sound Alumni Band is over for the Holiday Breaks. I have to admit this was the best year ever. We had so many people turn out for all the games and people even traveled into town to do this. I was able to spend time with some really good friends from long ago and meet some really nice people which I hope will continue to be a part of what I've started for a long time to come. I want this to be something, just like Homecoming, where people can come back and feel like they can be part of something...and I think it's been a success. Thanks again guys. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.
I've taken an investment into some other items of my life that have been lacking. I'll be discussing these as I go through it. One of the things I'd really love to do is.....
Peace, Love and Thick Blankets...and the Thick Blankets are needed this week!!
