Ralph Waldo Emerson impacted the world with his words. One of Emerson's biggest inspirations to his great works were his relationships. In countless writings, Emerson reflects about the importance of the people we invite in to our lives: our friends.
Read on to be inspired on how to become the most extraordinary friend possible:
Spend time together "Go often to the house of thy friend, for weeds choke the unused path." Friendships, like all living beings, require significant maintenance. If your friendship isn't growing, it's dying. Carve out time and commit to spending quality time, doing quality activities with your friends to ensure healthy, growing relationships.

Lifebook encourages its members to take advantage of every opportunity to celebrate life throughout each category. This 'Carpe diem' (seize the day) philosophy is one that I actively apply to every aspect of my life, including my Social Life.
Oftentimes people remark to me that I have so much fun in my social life. But having fun doesn't come by accident. For me, making meaningful social connections has become an everyday experience. No matter how brief my interactions with others, each person I encounter is in my LIFE and I want to share something with them, even if only for a moment. I continually apply my practice of truly acknowledging people as important individuals through questions and comments. Additionally, creating environments of comfort, fun and adventure for my friends is of critical importance to me.
