The Secret to Having the Right Friendships

Is the people around you making you better?
Are they inspiring you to reach above the glass ceiling?
Are they Encouraging or are they hindering  you?
Are they helping you or are they hurting  you?

God Ordained the Right People to come into your life and if you get the wrong people out of the way then the right people will help to inspire, they will help make you better!

You can't hang out with chickens and expect to soar like eagles!

I love this quote by Joel Olsteen! I was listening to his podcast about bringing the right people into your life and was so inspired by his message that I had to tell you! I mean I couldn't keep this all to myself...that would just be rude!  It's time to make a change, a change in a new and better way. With spring and summer its a chance to develop new growth just like the flowers and trees! Winter is there to shed away old dead leaves, meaning for us old relationships. Whether it be a couple...uncoupling(Ha! I had to do it) or friendships unraveling its all to make us stronger and creating an opening for the right people to come in.

So its time to look at the people around you! Are you like the people you hang around? When they gossip, do you gossip? When they lie, do you lie? When they party and drink do you do the same. When they cheat, do you cheat? Just think about the people in your life are they making you soar or are they just flapping their wings and going no where...

Be Selective with who you spend your time with

Now I'm not saying you have to completely cut these people off. Say for instance it's someone in your family. You can't just cut them off, however, take time out to be with the right people. The ones that are going to make you feel good about yourself, your passion, your gift!

Know Your Worth!

I had a moment this weekend where someone belittled me about my passion, made me feel less than. When the person left I cried, I felt so stupid about the path I chose but then my mom(thank god for mothers, right!) came in and comforted me and told me I can do whatever I set my mind too. She also reminded me of the fact that, that person wasn't in no position to hold any judgments because that person wasn't doing anything with their life! Do you see what I'm saying! You have to love those people from a distance!

People without integrity will always have a problem.

Soar above the Rest!

Soar with eagles! That may involve leaving some people. It may seem lonely for a season but I promise, Its not the end of the world but Its the beginning of a beautiful new season! I've never been one to have a lot of friends or keep a lot of friends. I've had friends in school that have gone on to do other things sometimes off the good path. College the same can be said. So I dont look at that and have a "woe is me" attitude. I look up to God and say thank you, my path is not their path! I don't go out partying it up...or as the young kids say "turning it up." I don't drink or smoke...and I don't curse. Yeah you could say I'm boring but the right people say's that I'm lively, funny, and caring!

God will never tell you to give up something without giving you something better in return!

The Law of Friends

If you are a goal digger, then find people that will make you out to be the best goal digger you can be. If you are a dream seeker find the best dang dreamers you can find! Just like the law of attraction we have the law of friends. The way you see yourself is what you will attract. So what are you attracting?

Birds of a feather flock together

So whether you're in school, in college, or at the work office, it's better to have one good friend that is going places...the right places, than a bunch of people who are just settling where they are or running around in circles. We will lose friends it's just how it is. We outgrow even the best of friends, don't be scared of this...sometimes it's for the best. Don't try to hold on to something that's over and done with, let go and let the right people come into your life.

If You need the right friend I'm always here, giving you sound advice for a better future ;)

Do you have the wrong people in your life, how have they made you weaker?
Do you have the right people in your life, how have they made you stronger?


  1. It took me a long time to figure out how to separate real friends from people that just want things from me. Real friends are supposed to make you feel happy and full of energy :)

  2. I totally agree. We become the people we often hang out with. That's why we need to be deliberate whom we spend our time with. As Joel Osteen put it, you can't hang out with chickens and expect to fly like an eagle.

  3. This is so very true. This is why I make a serious effort to be very careful who I'm hanging around. Someone once told me that iron sharpens iron and it's so true. Especially being a motivated and ambitious person, it's very bad for you to hang around others who are not... if not dangerous even. It completely kills your drive and people have influence over you whether you think they do or not. Choose what type of people you want influencing you subconsciously carefully. ♥

  4. I definitely have the right people in my life, and I've had to let go of some friendships along the way. But in the end, I have always had to do what's best for me. Great post!

  5. I have had the wrong friends in my life I honestly thought they were my best friends but when my life got crappy they went running. It's funny the one who used to slate everyone is now the one who their all friends with. Really crushed me
