You're In My Front Row


Life is a theatre; invite your audience carefully. Not everyone is healthy 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 of (or at least minimize) your time with draining, negative, incompatible, not-going-anywhere relationships and/or friendships.
Observe the relationships around you. Pay CLOSE attention. Which ones lift and which ones lean? Which ones encourage and which 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 worse? Which ones always have drama and which ones really understand, know or appreciate you?
The more YOU seek quality, respect, growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you, 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.

"Since you cannot change the people around you,
change the people you’re around."
