Tip #8: Take Interest
Lay aside the iPhone. Facebook can wait. Take a few minutes to look at those lovely people in your life. Whether it’s someone passing by, or your best friend, don’t forget to give them some time. A smile, a simple “good morning” will go a long way.
A personal favorite way to make new friends and encourage closer relationships is to approach a child. “Cute dress!” or “Did you lose a tooth?!?!” can suddenly launch you into a lifelong friendship. One of my best friends is 5 years old. 🙂
