Note to self: surround yourself with people who challenge you to be your very best and hold you accountable. Study the scriptures to know what “your best” should be. DO your best. Then study the scriptures some more and keep doing it. There is nothing better than good friends who love you and lead by their actions as an example and always lead you back to God. We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with. -Jim Rohn Live in His word and give as much as you can to others. Life is too short to waste a single moment not giving it our best! You will always know what to do and give when you draw near to God. Always. He never fails. Come near to God and He will come near to you. - James 4:8

In high school I really believed I was only as smart as the people I surrounded myself with, and later on in life I’m still finding that to be true—only, Lara’s right—it’s much more than intelligence. It’s goodness. It’s drive. It’s discipline. It’s honor. It’s respect. Surround yourself with positive people who encourage your light and joy, who strengthen you and challenge you, who sharpen your mind and support your spirit. “ We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.” LOVE THIS.
