Happy Friday! Bring on the weekend.
I recently read an article about Jim Rohn, a motivational speaker who urges people to think carefully about who they spend their time with.
â€˜You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.’ Jim Rohn
It makes sense â€“ people either drag you down or lift you up. This got me thinking about the five people that I spend the most time with physically. I spend most of my time with Henry, Kristien, my dad, my brother-in-law Nick, and Nicole. If you count phone and e-mail interaction, I spend a lot of time with my BFFs Sarah and Lauren and my mom, too. I guess this is one of the reasons that I like blogs so much â€“ you can â€˜surroundâ€™ yourself with good people via the Internet.
If you count furbabies, I spend more time with Maggie and James than my own husband. Maggie is definitely dragging me down in terms of general intelligence but lifting me up in regards to overall awesomeness.
Life lesson from dear old Maggie: Confidence is key. If you ever feel out of place, simply act like youâ€™re supposed to be there and others will automatically accept you. Sit in that chair like it was made for your bottom.
Who do you spend the most time with?
