And throughout all this, I just keep thinking how boring life would be if we were all alike....thinking and doing the same things. At first, it may seem safe to insulate ourselves with people who think and do like us but in the long term...it doesn't help us grow. It doesn't nurture the best part of who we are. That seems such a waste, don't you think?
That old phrase "Variety is the spice of life" is so true. We get our kicks not from the same old thing but from that something different!
Sure, there are times we need the point-of-view of people who think like us and times when we need the point-of-view of people who don't. We need a variety of friends, experiences, and points-of-view. The interactions and discussions---it challenges us!
Life is short. Go meet people, all kinds of people! Get to know them. Open your heart, your mind. You will not regret it. Sure..similar is good, but different is good too.
