November challenge: Turn an acquaintance into a friend

This November, I challenge you to take the initiative to invite a new acquaintance to join you in an activity or outing. Choose a person who interests you, but with whom you have not yet engaged in any social activities beyond your normal sphere of engagement, be it work, school, the dog park, daycare drop-offs, or what have you.

We can all use new faces, new conversation and new energy in our lives from time to time, and there is no better way to achieve this than by bringing new people into our social circles. To quote Madame C. J. Walker,

Don’t sit down and wait for the opportunities to come; you have to get up and make them!

This month, make the effort to make a new friend, and see where the experience takes you!
