Little Life Lesson: Be Approachable

Today I made it a point to not have my headphones on while walking down the street. And I even slowed down from my usual hurried pace. The result? More people approached me. I recommended a restaurant to a gay brother and sister visiting Boystown from NYC, and later I met a hairstylist looking for work who just moved here from Oklahoma. These little encounters kind of made Chicago feel more warm and neighborly. Today I realized that Chicago never wasn't this way - I just wasn't approachable enough. That changes from here on out.

  5. Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty
    quick. I'm thinking about setting up my own but I'm not sure where to start.
