Make the Call
The last of this month's topic: Making friends and connections is Make The Call.
I share one last ingredient to use when you're out making new friends and networking.
I know, I know. you're going to say, "Lisette, I like spending time by myself so I don't need to do this." Cool, congratulations! You're at the prime of your life but don't forget life ebbs and flows so maybe you're good now but maybe one day, you find yourself in a different stage. You never know but as long as you know how to get back on horse then for me, that's a win.
Making Friends as an Adult
You don't have to reinvent the wheel when it comes to making friends. It's as simple as looking through your contacts list. If you did last week's self-inventory of what kind of friend you are, you can probably start to look at a pattern on the kind of friend you've been, and maybe found out you could step up your game or perhaps you've been giving too much of your self. All of these discoveries help you become self-aware, emotional intelligent, and it could be the beginning or a great reminder to start setting your limits and create better boundaries. Armed with this knowledge you can look at your contact list objectively and start evaluating whether you keep your friends because they are actually friends (based on last weeks responses) or if you keep them around for another reason.
Breaking the Junk Food Habit
Breaking up with junk food is hard. First, it's everywhere nowadays. Every store will have an aisle or more to temp us with savory, sweet, crispy, crunchy and sour. They make it too easy to fail your goals! Second, sugar is the new tobacco and unfortunately for us, sugar is in EVERYTHING! We know it's super addictive and it's seriously imbedded in all junk food making it so much harder to break up with our bag of chips.
