What does intentional living mean? It is about finding meaning in what you do with your life and embracing the moment, isn’t it?
One of my aims for this year is to meet new people. It is simple to drift through life and not do anything challenging and trust me, meeting and speaking to people I don’t know, is as challenging as it gets. It is easy to socialise with a handful of friends and talk about the same things. So I thought I might like to change this.
On Saturday, I met up with a walking group for not only their monthly walk, but a pub lunch too. We met at an agreed place and then drove to the pub to park the cars. As soon as I arrived, I immediately felt at home with the other people. They were friendly, engaging and interested.
We had a lovely walk around the English countryside and happily admired various views, talked about all sorts of things including jobs, village affairs, fraud, nutrition, health, theatre and of course, walking.
I must say, they were an extremely friendly bunch of people and I was glad I spent my morning with them. It goes to show that if you make an effort to go out and about, it pays off. I enjoyed the walk, but more importantly, enjoyed discussing and debating different issues. Of course, I enjoyed a pint and a steak in the pub too. Fantastic.
