Strangers

I wonder what comes to your mind when you think of the word strangers. Does it excite you, scare you or you are simply indifferent waiting for whatever it brings your way? Well, lately I have found myself a bit more interested in strangers, something like a new hobby of meeting strangers. In the past before this new found hobby (could be short lived by the way) I was never fond of strangers, I never picked interest in anything to do with strangers – now wondering how I became friends to people in my life! I think it is the habit of having met them over and over in the same places of interest that we became friends but naturally I wouldn’t walk up to someone and strike up a conversation. So, what is it about strangers?This temporary new lifestyle of transportation of using ubers on a daily has been the biggest catalyst to changing my perspective and behavior around strangers. Thinking of all the various uber drivers I have had to meet every single day for 30 days straight and more while having to strike up conversations with some or when they strike a conversation with me and I have to engage if interested has opened up my mind to some possibilities in how we actually relate with people around us, especially strangers. Holding a substantial conversation with a stranger requires real interest in what is being discussed, otherwise, there will be a disconnect to that conversation.I have also realised that humans are generally interesting beings made in unique ways – those who are purpose driven in their work, however simple and those simply hustling it out to make ends meets without a clear goal in mind. (Don’t think I’m judging, this is picked from conversations with strangers ๐Ÿ˜…) Meeting strangers opens up your mind to view life from a different lense and possibly picking one or two things you can apply in to your own life. For example, from one conversation, I realised that with a car, I can be a strategic uber driver while still at my day job. This definately sorts out a bill on that budget.Meeting strangers is also another way to air out your views without minding about being judged in any way because strangers don’t care what you think unless it ignites them to think differently. This is not a ticket for one to meander off their morality or belief systems but one where the mind is set free just like I’m set free with a pen and paper (in this modern case with a gagdet and an app/website)I’m loving strangers and definately learning more about being open minded.Love โค Child

    No matter if some one searches for his essential thing, so he/she desires to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.

    Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, great blog!

  4. You actually make it seem so easy with your
    presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complex and
    extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it!
