How adorable are these girls right here? I had the pleasure of meeting them in Dana Point when I went to the OC Parks Summer Concert Series. They were all laughing and smiling, enjoying their summer before heading off to college. They were just so cute plus I loved their fashion style so I just had to go up to them. I recently started this category that features people who I feel represent the California Lifestyle…. and most importantly that represent … Peace ~ Love & Happiness ~
I’m going to ask you a favor…..Get to know your fellow neighbor, or the person that makes your coffee for you in the morning, or just someone you pass by on the street… Lets all try to become friends with one another, even for a brief moment. When we start to understand someone different from us, we start to have empathy & sympathy which I believe leads to showing compassion for others. I hope we can start this trend of just making brief conversations with a “stranger” and see where it goes. You might make the other persons day not feel so lonely or maybe yours. I still get social anxiety & I am definitely an introvert but I have had the courage to go up to “strangers” because I hope to make a small difference in making the world a better, loving and not so lonely place.
