One of the important elements of happiness is to surround oneself with like minded people. It’s critical for our social emotional health. Perhaps one of the best ways to do this is to belong to a club or organization where all participants gather around and participate in a shared interest.

The opportunities are boundless… Some of the more ‘old fashioned’ options are fraternal organizations that may have been family interests such as the Masons or Eastern Star both of which are tradition based service organizations. Civic organizations such as the Lion’s Club also offer opportunities for involvement in local communities. Charities, foundations, and faith based groups are also great options for kindred spirits.

In addition to all those choices, the website GroupMe.com matches people to their inclinations. From book clubs and dance groups to sports activities and card players, GroupMe identifies others in your locale that share similar interests. It’s a great place to start, especially for people moving into new locations and looking to establish themselves socially and/or people just wanting to reinvent themselves from a social perspective. Additionally, people wanting to ‘test’ the water or experiment with other social groups have a plethora of options via GroupMe.

We are positively impacted each time we have an opportunity to surround ourselves with others who share the things we appreciate and even more so when those occasions allow us us to impact the world around us in a positive way. If you are seeking a way to increase your social interaction and/or impact other people, you might consider…
