Getting out and about
It's time to get away from the security of your mobile phone.
It's time to get away from "letting your fingers do the walking."
It's time to get out of your shell and stop using "I'm an introvert" as an excuse.
It's time to be that social person that is in everyone out there.
We all make excuses about why we shouldn't go somewhere. Especially at this time of the year where it is cold outside and in certain parts of the world there might be even be several feet of snow on the ground. There is no better time than the present to start your new life.
I'm not saying that you become a party animal, what I am saying is that on occasions you make the decision to go out and interact with people that you might not deal with on a daily basis.
What I am saying is that in society today you need to socialise occasionally so why not practice occasionally.
Last year I went out to a few bars and clubs by myself. It was way out of of my comfort zone and it was difficult but what it did was it forced me to speak to people who I might not have done in the past. Some people were willing to talk and others, smiled (grimaced) and said hello and went on their way. Hey! You can't win them all.
It's time to get out there and just make your way along that personality spectrum a little bit. You don't have to become like the people in the photo below but becoming just that little bit more social could make all the difference.
