I did it. I made a new friend.

I made a friend!! My girlfriend dragged me out of the house to a party (how she convinced me? I have no idea) and I met a guy. We exchanged email addresses and I've been ecstatic all day! We had so much in common that it was ridiculous. He had me laughing and vice-versa.

Sometimes, you just have to go for it. I was so nervous I almost barfed, but after we got to talking, the whole world just drifted away. It was so surreal, I was comfortable in a crowd knowing that someone was actually interested in what I had to say.

Just get out there even if everything in your heart is telling you no.. I took a big chance, and it was fruitful. Without the support of you guys and reading your stories, I probably wouldn't have.

"What I do is based on powers we all have inside us; the ability to endure; the ability to love, to carry on, to make the best of what we have — and you don’t have to be a ‘Superman’ to do it."

Wooo good for you! That really is the key, to simply get out there because it's the only way you can meet people and in the process expose yourself to your fears and hopefully make progress against them.

I had a similar experience last night, was at a party to watch a rugby match and met a guy who was a friend of a friend who just happened to mention something about F1 racing. Turns out after questioning him he is as much a fan and follower as I am (was not sure it was possible xD). So you really never know, there as so many interesting characters out there to meet!!

Your 100% in anything, even if you're not the best at it, is a success.

To the world you are one person, but to one person you are the world.

Some people make the world more special, just by being in it.
