Sept. 5, 2018 From Lisa:
I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of my friend’s son this weekend. Weddings! Those fresh beginnings, full of newness, excitement and serious intentions. What a poignant moment, an amazing point in our lives when we make the monumental decision of who we will spend forever with. A great reminder to follow our moral compass, make conscious, well thought out choices, honor our beliefs, values and life goals. I found myself wondering if I put the same thought and intent into my other relationships… friends, co-workers, family.
After all, we teach our children to choose friends wisely. We coach them to surround themselves with people that are good for them, people that help them become better versions of themselves. Do we do the same for ourselves? Do we surround ourselves with individuals that build us up? Do we have relationships that pour into us… that fill us up? Do we fill up others? Do we stay true to ourselves or wander into relationships that mold us into something we are not?
Being Happy is a continuous choice that we make moment by moment, day by day, year by year…. but it can also be contagious! It is imperative that we be alert and live with our eyes open, consciously deciding with whom we will invest our time. Let’s surround ourselves with happiness this year and see what a difference it makes!
