Get to know someone different from you

Day 24 of #LiveWell2017

“Be kind. It’s worthwhile to make an effort to learn about other people and figure out what you might have in common with them. If you allow yourself to be somewhat curious – and if you get into the habit of doing that – it’s the first step to being open minded and realizing that your points of view aren’t totally opposite.” – Viggo Mortensen

Remember that these daily graphics I post are reminders for myself. Motivators to help me live well and create goodness. If they help you, too, that’s great.

Today, I’m meeting a group of people I don’t know. They come from different backgrounds and do different kinds of work. I’m going there to listen and learn, to find out how they view the world, to challenge my own assumptions, and to overcome my fears of talking with new people.

Today my work is to connect to others. How about you?
