It's different for any two people

A journey of 1000 miles begins with…

You got it…the first step…

Yes, it's the hardest step to take…yes, it can be lonely, all we have is ourselves, our courage…our will to succeed...

Journeys are filled with anticipation, they bring us alive in unexpected ways. We see everything around us in a new light, tantalizing us…thrilling us...

Our need to connect...

When we find something new and exciting, what do we immediately want to do?

Share our experience with our loved ones, family, friends…people with similar ideas, shared beliefs.

It’s our need to connect…to reach out.

We’re social creatures, after all…

…sometimes we put up our guard...to protect ourselves…reluctant to reveal our true feelings until we feel safe.

People are cautious...

How do we nurture that safety?

…little by little, sensing the rhythm, learning the dance.

It’s different for any two people…it’s what makes human interaction unique, fascinating...

It starts with a conversation, maybe several, perhaps many. People are cautious...the stakes are high, one false move, the guard’s back up...begin again.

Can connection be instant?

When it is…it’s exhilarating, like finding a long-lost friend.

Right time, right place…meant to be...

…endless conversation, enthusiasm, laughter...it feels right.

The first step...

“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” Aristotle said, a long time ago.

It’s great to have someone to celebrate with, to savour the wins…for support in disappointment…all parts of the same journey, the friction that drives us.

It takes two to tango…are you willing to take the first step? “After you.” “No, after you…”

The coming together of minds is incredibly powerful and almost surpasses everything else...that moment when we click... 

Begin your journey...

Trust and you will be trusted…be grateful and you will receive.

Be open...welcome the new…be that adventurer.

Make a friend of new…amplify 'like’ in ‘like-minded’.

You don't know what you don't know…

…until someone points it out...until you listen.

Be the one to take the first step...begin your journey…courage mon ami…

...courage...
