It’s a beautiful day!
I’m headed back to Eastern Connecticut this weekend to celebrate my teammate and best friend, Ashley, as she gets inducted into the Hall of Fame (she’s kind of a big deal). I’m super excited to see Ashley, my former teammates, coaches and family and feel so fortunate to have such amazing people in my life. It’s a great reminder that people matter and that we need to hold onto the good people who help us become the best version of ourselves.
Someone shared the book passage below with me and it couldn’t be more timely as I head back to the old stomping grounds and reconnect with the amazing people I spent a whole lot of time with during my formative college years.
In college, Ashley, my other teammates and I spent pretty much every waking moment together. I’m so thankful for that time because they brought so much joy and laughter to my life, called me out when I needed a wake-up call and made me a better person.
The people we surround ourself with is so important. Motivational speaker, Jim Rohn, says we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with and I couldn’t agree more. Whether we like it or not we are greatly influenced by the people in our lives and the ones we spend the most time with. We are all our own person but the people we spend time with can influence how we feel, our self-esteem, the decisions we make and so much more.
So who are your five? Do they bring good vibes to your life or bring you down?
Hold onto the good people in your life and be a source of happiness, positivity and support for them like they are for you.
Oh, and those people who are bringing you down. RUN! Figure out your exit strategy and spend way less time around them.
Embrace the day!
