582. Recent Life | "No New Friends"

National Yacht Club Toronto
Yesterday I went to dinner with a friend of mine who told me he recently got the idea to narrow down the number of friends in his life. He was trying to decide whether or not to keep up to 5 or up to 10, but reassured me I made the cut lol. The point of this is to build better quality relationships with who you do have in your life and enable you to focus more on what's important in your life to become successful. I thought about this and I probably have four "close" friends now who I talk to or see on a daily basis. I also have a lot of secondary friends who I talk to or see less often. & then I have countless acquaintances/casual friends I guess. I find that the older I get, the less time I have to meet new people/friends and I don't really care about it as much as I used to. I still like meeting new people though but I wouldn't purposely try to. At this point in my life I am mostly focused on building a successful future for myself and improving my own life which takes up quite a lot of time. It's a bit ironic because this week I actually made plans every day of the week (only my Thursday is still open for now in terms of social activities)...with all "new friends". Well, half new and half casual friends. & here are some photos taken recently:

ROM Toronto
Over the past few weeks I realized I went to the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) a few times. A couple times I went to their Friday Night Live events and another day my friend and I had lunch in the area and dropped by. I have a membership there this year so I want to try to go more often.

I love the animal exhibit. This lion is so beautiful. My ultimate dream in life is to see the Serengeti Migration and see all these animals in their natural habitat.

This reminds me of Age of Empires (my sister and my favourite computer game growing up lol)

A few weeks ago my building had our annual owners meeting. I rarely come to the meetings because everyone is so much older than me and I feel awkward going alone..I've gone a couple times before just for the food though lol. But this time a friend of mine who also lives in the building was available that night so we went together. I'm really glad we did. The food selection was really nice this time hahah (buffet style) and we also had to vote for a few new members on the Board of Directors. It was also interesting to hear how the hotel is doing (the building is a condo-hotel and the owners collectively own the hotel side as well). So for the vote, my friend and I volunteered as "scrutineers" so in the end we helped to count up all the votes. It was a fun night. It was nice to meet some other owners and the board members as I realized I never met them before.

  1. Your friend is right! It's interesting because recently I've also been assessing the "friends" I have. I have realised that some people really add nothing to my life but they want to hang out with me for their entertainment / shoulder to cry on / not having to be alone. In the past I always said yes but lately I've been saying no a lot. "Me time" can be much more valuable than spending time with certain people. So it's important to make the right decisions. Life's too short!

    1. I'm glad you feel the same!! I realized a lot of my friendships in the past have been out of convenience or just to have someone to spend time with when bored..
