If you've made some great new friends since being single, chances are they've recently introduced you to some equally great new places and experiences. This can be quite an eye-opener, especially if you've been a bit 'set in your ways' up until now. If you'd previously been too unsure of yourself to hop across the channel on a ferry, or not had the confidence to join an evening class, then these types of activities, along with hundreds more, can now become a regular part of your exciting new life.
Instead of being a hermit or sticking to a familiar routine to avoid anything 'scary', the world can now potentially be your oyster. Don't make excuses any more, jump in with both feet and allow yourself to feel truly alive.
