I was talking with a friend today and a couple discussions involved some people from years past.
As we were talking I voiced how I firmly believe that there are times where people are added to our lives to act as a catalyst for our lives!
Similarly I think about how some people really do come into our lives for a reason!
Some of them are temporary
Some of them stay longer
Some are here forever
But, at the end of the day people serve a purpose in our lives and we serve a purpose in other people's lives.
A few years ago I dated a guy that was only going to be in the area for six months. Agreed at the beginning there was no long distance.
I grew more in those six months than I had in years! He was in my life for a reason. He made me better! Everything about him encouraged me to be a better human, a stronger person and better at overall life!
Knowing it was "temporary" was hard for me!
But, because he was an amazing human and an asset to my life he continued to be amazing!
The day I had to put down a horse I owned for 16 years he showed up found me hysterical on the kitchen floor and dealt with it.
He behaved in ways that for the first time in my entire adult life I didn't have to be in charge! He had things handled. I could relinquish control and let my brick wall down.
I needed his presence in my life to grow!
The right people add to your life daily! The wrong people selfishly take!
When you find people that add to your life, graciously accept! Temporary or not! And be thankful, really thankful!
He used to tell me I accessorized like a New Englander 🙌🏻 So tonight with my New England style I'm going to tote my ass to Augusta and graciously accept people that are adding to my life!
