Surround yourself with people who inspire you

Updated: Feb 21, 2020

"Show me your friends, and I'll show you your future."


I pray that I surround myself with people that leave me feeling happier, challenged and inspired.


I've been watching as one of my close friends has made her new apartment in Chicago into a home. Each time I visit, there's a new piece of furniture or plant. I get the joy of seeing her personality fill her new space. I get to see her create the life she wants. I see that and I want that. It keeps me hopeful for when I have my own home. It makes me excited to live in Chicago and start that phase of my life.


One of my friends in Springfield visits a wholesale market every year in Atlanta for her boutique. She texted me, "I want to have a market like this someday." I replied, "I can't wait to see all the things we're going to create in this next decade."


Fill your life with those people. The ones who you remind you of your gifts and your abilities. The ones who have your back and speak truth into your life.
