This quote (and I don’t know who actually said it) popped into my
mind in the midst of lunch with a friend today. In the course of the lunch we discussed various projects we hoped to initiate. Projects involving topics we felt passionate about. As we examined the complexities of the undertaking we were considering, contentment hung in the air. Respect coated every nuance of our conversation.
Later in the day, I met up with another set of friends and as we discussed different topics and challenged each other in the beliefs that we had, I found myself reflecting again on that quote. My friends brought value to my life and I like to think I bring value in their lives as well.
The company you surround yourself with has the power to influence the thoughts and actions you have. Negative friends will bring out negativity in you. Positive friends bring out positivity in you. We have the power to choose who we allow into our lives. We also have the power to bring value to others lives.
Love and Kindness are some of the ingredients necessary to influence the good you can bring to others lives. Having wisdom to have the clarity to see a situation as it is will guide you in making the choices that will put you in the right environment with the right conversations that will ultimately enrich your day.
Who are your friends and what future do you have with them?
