It’s funny how we go through life and randomly meet people. Some people are friends, some people are lovers, and some people are foes. Often, we know who they will be before we even get a chance to interact with them.

It’s all about finding common ground. Sometimes we meet someone and feel like we have known them all our lives.

We both have something in common. You don’t know what I’m going to say, and neither do I.

Yet, there are some people we have so much in common with, and we never get a chance to meet them. We simply hear about them through mutual friends.

Is it fate? Destiny? Were we only able to meet in a parallel universe?
I don’t really believe in parallel universes. But there could be a version of me who does.


Finding the Yin to Your Yang

“I knew when I met you, an adventure was going to happen.” – Winnie the Pooh

We’ve all had a Winnie the Pooh moment at least once in our lives. We meet someone at a college campus, in a grocery store, or at a friend’s party. There’s that instant “click” as we realize that they have the same kind of personality. They laugh at the same things. There’s a distinct vibe.

In many instances, others can sense it, too. It’s palpable. People will say things like, “You two were made for each other” or “You two were cut from the same cloth.”

I met a giant once. I didn’t know what to say so I used big words.

Finding that kind of connection is cosmic. It’s also something you want to grab on tight to because it doesn’t happen that often.

When you find the yin to your yang, you’ll know it. This can be a friend or a lover. It can also be both. After all, the most successful marriages are usually described as marrying their best friend.

The person who completes you will complete your thoughts. They’ll know what you’re thinking before you’ve even finished processing the thought because they were thinking the same thing.

You can be the best version of yourself once you meet the yin to your yang because you are now complete. Both of you are better together than you were individually.

Things may even seem off when you go out into the world without your partner. Why? You’re suddenly out of balance.

The 3 Cs in Life: Choice, Chance, Change

It’s been said that there are 3 Cs to follow in life. You must make the choice and take the chance if you want anything in life to change.

Start thinking about the people you spend time with. If you don’t have many friends, make the choice to start socializing more. And if you don’t have any quality friends that will boost you up, it might be time to make a harder choice by letting them go.

Either way, you have to take the chance that you’ll meet someone you can be yourself around and vibe with, as that is the best feeling ever.

There’s no need to be glum if you haven’t met the one – the bestie, the love of your life, or simply a good group of friends.

Stay positive. You just haven’t met them yet. As long as you follow the 3 Cs, that could change in an instant.

Strangers are Just Friends Waiting to Happen

Not everyone you meet will be a friend. However, there is always that possibility. It all depends on the energies that you both exhibit and what you do about it.

There’s also no telling what can become of any relationship that you attempt to create with a person. Just look at the romance books out there. Enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, enemies to friends. The possibilities exist, so you might as well meet a stranger to see what happens.

“Life is beautiful not because of the things we see or do. Life is beautiful because of the people we meet.” – Simon Sinek

Now, you probably don’t want to go up to just any random stranger in Sherman Country to see if they want to be your friend. That would seem weird and desperate.

After all, there are two types of people in the world.


Think about which muffin you are in this story:

Two muffins are in an oven. One muffin turns to the other and says, “Sure is hot in here, huh? The other muffin screams, “Aaah! A talking muffin.”

If you laughed, we are likely friends who just haven’t met yet. If you rolled your eyes or failed to get the joke, your people are out there somewhere.

When I go to someone’s house, and they tell me to make myself at home, the first thing I do is throw them out because I don’t like visitors.

Seriously, though, once you get to the friendship level where you’re invited to their home or you invite them to yours, it’s important to make a good first impression.

Particularly in Kansas, you might want to give a big “Yallo!” and a wave. Invite someone over for a tart cherry pie that you just baked. Or simply have an activity planned, whether it’s fishing, ATVing, or doing something else for the two of you to bond.

Strangers are just friends waiting to happen.

Having a place where you can hang with your friends, new and old, is important. That’s where it can be helpful to have a pole barn. It can be your primary residence, a man cave, or even a toy garage for all of your vehicles, recreational equipment, and more.

At Sherman Pole Buildings, we don’t know if there’s a parallel universe where we have more fun than we are having right now. We love spending time in Kansas. More importantly, we love meeting new friends who we vibe with.

Talking about the benefits of a Sherman-built pole barn is one of our favorite pastimes. After all, with the quality craftsmanship and the many ways that they can be customized, it’s such a great way to build something on your land in Sherman Country.

Whether you’re looking to take a chance on friendship with us or want to talk about the details of a pole barn, give us a call. We can’t wait to talk to you.
