People have the power to build you up to everything you want to achieve in life or to tear you down till you are shell of the person you were.
The more I am around people and the more I make connections, I realized how much people can change your life. This week for example, I’ve had busy week that left me with around 20 hours of sleep for the whole week. I am fully aware this is not healthy and I am certainly not touting it to be a good thing either. With this week being what is was, it made me realized that people are everything. By being around the right people this week, it not only made it bearable, but fun. My friends and colleagues helped to support me and build me up when I needed it.
Going through life, I have found you will meet those people who come into your life suddenly but become your best friends and change your life for the best in what is sometimes a matter of days. I have been at a conference this past weekend and we have had an absolute blast despite being up at before the sunrise and staying up well past sunset. These are the kind of people that just make the little things in life special and sometimes just ridiculously fun.
I know this was a short post but I just feel like we need a reminder of how thankful we should be for the people in our life. I have found that it is easy to prioritize how people view us and how many followers or “friends” we have. These are just statistics though and it is important to be in the moment with those around us and to make the best out of where you are in life. If you don’t like it, work to change it! It’s often easier said than done, but it can be done, and if you want something then I believe you should work towards it relentlessly. If you want community, put yourself out there and work to find and build it.
Thank you for reading and hope you have a great day.
