I was just thinking the other day that our favorite things become roadmaps for other people. A way for them to connect to us. When I'm out and about and see something that reminds me of someone else, it is usually reminding me of something that I know my friend loves -or is passionate about! Isn't that wonderful???
On the other hand, people who don't seem to have favorite things, hobbies or passions are harder to get to know. They pop up less frequently in our minds because they don't express strong preferences for ANYTHING. I worry that they do this because they are afraid to be themselves; because they are afraid that others won't think them "cool". Don't worry! The people who really care about you don't care if your favorite things are "cool" or not (and if they do, maybe you don't need them for friends!) C'mon, start expressing your fondness for something. For anything! It helps us get to know you; remember you; AND connect with you! Peace, my friends!
