Where do I fit?

Updated: Sep 28, 2020

We all need to interact in some way within the communities we live, be it online or in real time. With that interaction we communicate. Imagine if what we communicated was as effective as we wanted it to be, mostly every time! (Let's face it, we are not going to get it right everytime.)

My blog is going to focus on community and how we fit into it.

Connecting with others

In our busy and increasingly online lives, it is not always the easy to connect with others even when we want to. When we live alone it can be even more challenging.

Real time spaces

Start to take notice:

  • When going on our usual travel routes

  • Within our interest groups

  • People who live near us

  • Others using the same facilities

We can find 'friends' in some unlikely places. See below for a true story when I dared to step out of my comfort zone.

Asking for a friend

At the time I was parenting two young children on my own, had recently moved to a new city and desperately needed a friend. One day I 'prayed' (sent out a hope filled thought) 'I need a friend'. It was as simple as that, but completely heartfelt.

I went to a popular local playground and as the children were playing, I looked over and saw a woman and thought, 'that's her'.

Summoning up some courage I started a conversation. It turned out, she had 'prayed' the same thing that very same day!
