Food for thought...Thanks Whit for having me in your front row

Everyone can't be in your front row!

Life is a theater - invite your audience carefully.Not everyone is spiritually healthy and mature enough to have a front row seat in our lives.There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a distance.It's amazing what you can accomplish when you let go, or at least minimize your time with draining negative, incompatible not-going-anywhere relationships/friendships/fellowships!

Observe the relationships around you.Pay attention to: Which ones lift and which ones lean? Which ones encourage and which ones discourage? Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are going downhill? When you leave certain people, do you feel better or feel worse? Which ones always have drama or don't really understand, know and appreciate you and the gift that lies within you?When you seek growth, peace of mind, love and truth, the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the Front Row and who should be moved to the balcony of your life.You cannot change the people around you but you can change the people you are around!

'Greatness is not a function of circumstance.Greatness is largely a matter of conscious choice and discipline.'
