Choose your friends and influences well……..for they will shape your experiences and speak to the world about who you are, what you value, and most importantly how much you love yourself. We cannot and should not hide who we are, what we think, and how we feel; and yet sometimes we allow people into our lives who do not appreciate our authenticity, and who ask us to be something that we are not.
In its highest form Love doesn’t hide for anyone, it stands tall for all to see and receive. It encourages the best in each of us, and reminds us that our relationships give us the opportunity to share who we are with the world. So be conscious of the energy around you, take note of the people who fill your hours and days for they will influence how you feel and the choices that you will make. Time is our most precious commodity and yet we act as if we have all the time in the world; The real secret is to spend that time on advancing our life’s mission and being the very best that we can be by choosing excellence, always.
Robin Sharma said “We do not move through our days alone or apart from the world around us. And so we must always be aware of the things and the people we allow into our lives. It’s a mark of wisdom to choose to spend time in those places that inspire and energize you and associates with those people who elevate and uplift you. Whether in our work or our personal lives, these most positive friends and peers will inspire us to be our greatest selves and to lead our largest lives.”
