One of my 2011 new year resolutions is to come out of my shell. I tend to be very shy and moving to new areas can be rough when you not an outgoing person especially a little lonely during deployments. Over the years being a military wife and child, I learn that making good friends make deployments and being away from home a lot easier. I have gained a lot of friends over the years. I am very thankful for them.
Now it's time for me to get out and get to know some new people. I been in Texas a few months now. I have been friendly with a few friends but haven't really got out and met some really good friends. One thing I have learned is finding friends is a lot like dating. You have to get out there and mingle. Meet a lot of people and find the one. My husband doesn't understand why it takes so much time for me to meet new people. This is coming from Mr. Outgoing himself. Mind you I am deathly shy. I don't know why. I have been told that it is surprising because once they get to know me I am outgoing, myself. I guess its just that initial meetings.
For those who are SAHM's, it can be harder because you may not get out as much around other adults. I am now in a place where I have no kids at home. It can get especially lonely when I'm always solo.
So I am on a mission, I am going out there and mingle. Here's to a great year and great friends.
