Your Best Friend Or Love Of Your Life Starts As A Stranger

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

I have always been fascinated with the old adage, at least for children, "Don't Talk To Strangers." Well it may fit children mind you but too often we carry it into adulthood and openly conversing with people YOU DON'T KNOW finding what is common and appreciating differences with respect, well you never know where that path in life will take you. You see it online with people you meet, in face to face settings with people you bump into.

A FRIEND IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER OF THE NEXT CONVERSATION.

We all know this of course, but just a reminder in a fun video I found, about pairs of people sitting in a ball pit, in the middle of a city, with questions to get the conversation going, and you will see the smiles erupt and THE CONNECTION MADE.

That is what life is all about. DEPTH OF CONNECTION on a human scale. We have more in common with EVERYONE than you think. The joys, the pains, the life experiences. Just allow yourself to suspend judgment and TALK. GO FOR IT!!!

I think it is a great idea. Nice to have the time to relax like that and maybe get a new friend.

Hi Gary, what a great idea and a great blog-it is incredible how easy it is to speak to strangers when you travel-but this is a great way to do it right in your old backyard! Loved it!

Hi Gary,

I've seen this video before and thought to myself, wouldn't it be great for an orientation or partnership meeting? So often the presenter has to do all the talking but building relationships is very important in business. Wouldn't it be great to see these containers on different corners in Flower Mound? Oh, how I wish it could be true.

Gary, The love of my life started as someone I didn't really like. Then he became my friend then it grew into love. Amazing how it works.
