Then, here is advertising part, we need to get out there and make ourselves known. Be it through a letter or a phone call or a trip to visit, we have to make first real contact. We need to know what we have to offer and what is in it for us. And we don’t have to stay in any one thing forever. We can get out and try different things.
Even us shy introverted folks can use Internet to get in touch with others who have similar interests. Can join local message groups and get to know people. Just don’t make sitting at computer “chatting” with people your whole life unless it is really leading you to something you want to do in “real” world.
The idea is to get out there, so you can get noticed so you can get a (better) life. The hardest part is first step. Actually, its thinking of all possibilities and having to narrow them down. Then comes actual decision of what to do first.
Just get out there, do something for yourself for a change. Once you’re on your way towards something you enjoy, so many things will begin to open up. People will come into your life whom you would have never met otherwise. You’ll get to see new places in which you may have wanted to go to for years, but never took time. There will be different activities to be involved with which may have only been a wish to do.
Take chance. Make time. Get out there. Get noticed. And get a life you enjoy.
