Lunch With a New Friend
Today I had lunch with a new friend and we had a blast! One of the best aspects of moving to a new city is getting to know new people. When I was younger, this would have been much harder for me to do. I did not have much self-confidence and I hid as much as possible.
Now, I’m usually the person who reaches out first. I’m not afraid to introduce myself to people at a gathering. I look forward to making new connections. So, what happened to me? Why am I so different now?
I think it has to do with the inner work I’ve been doing over the last few years. I have come to a place in my life where I accept who and what I am, in this moment, without judgments or apologies. I know there is always room for improvement. I just don’t need to beat myself up anymore. This has opened my heart and my mind to the idea of welcoming new people into my life with this same level of acceptance I have for myself.
This seems to be working well so far. I’m meeting new people, I’m enjoying each experience, and I’m grateful for all of the opportunities. It comes down to love and acceptance…every time. So glad I learned this lesson.
In Love and Light,
