In my life I have spent way too much time worrying about what other people think. When I finally decided that was a waste of my time I realized ‘those’ people are no longer in my life anyway. Time changes all things, we think when we are children we will have the same friends throughout our lifetime–I have had so many people come in and out of my life–there were a few I believed would be lasting friends, but because circumstances change I am no longer in touch with them.
I now find the people who make my heart sing, the people whose joy is contagious and fun, the people who bring out the best in me.
We all need to make time for these people. Building our lives with them, inviting them into our daily life and into our heart. I know when I surround myself with people who live with joy, their happiness becomes mine too.
