Pursuing your passion in your community
Whether it’s extreme paragliding or hand knitting scarves, we all have interests and passions that make us who we are. And in today’s world, it’s easier than ever to connect with people who are passionate about the same things. What better way to follow your passion by connecting with your community and finding people who love the same things you do?
Where do I find people that are like me?
- There’s an app for that. Apps like Meetup, Nextdoor, Skout and Nearify offer awesome ways to connect with like-minded people and make new friends.
- Get social. Look for local groups you’re interested in on Facebook or Twitter. Or start your own group!
- Go out on the town. Love to read? Hang out at the library. Love to rock out? Go see live music. Love antiquing? Go to a local thrift shop. Find the places you enjoy in your community, and you’ll meet people who are into the same things as you.
- Organize a neighborhood event. Pick a hobby you love or that you’ve been wanting to get into, and host an event for your new neighbors. Maybe it’s a group craft project, a potluck for foodies or a neighborhood bocce ball tournament. You might introduce people to something they end up loving too.
What it really comes down to is, just find your passion. Do that, and you’ll find the right people to be part of your life.
