Sometimes, “I love you,” and “I’m sorry,” just five words total, are among the most mighty sentences and the most powerful relationship builders.
We make stronger, more authentic connections when we share what makes us different – our quirks and idiosyncrasies. Shared interests are fine conversation starters, but if we want to create real, genuine friendships, we need to get weird. Revealing the weird things about us actually makes us more lovable and relatable.
If we’re honest, we'll admit our days are filled with normal routines like eating cereal and sitting in traffic. We often wonder, “is this it?” But do we really have to quit our jobs and travel the world to find a fulfilling, purposeful life? Is it possible to find significance in our daily routines, right here and now?
The more we consume, the less satisfied we feel. We often feel bogged down by the regular, run-of-the-mill experiences like skiing on the bunny hill. But if we could recall feeling the simple joy of living something for the first time, we’d fill the void we try to fill with more, and more-extraordinary experiences.
