Have you heard about the studies that say we are a reflection of the five people that we spend the most time with? That’s right! We become most like the people we most like!
When you look around your life, who or what do you see?
Are there people who inspire you? Are willing to be straight with you? Hold your greatest dreams and visions?
Or are there people who are more apt to choose harmony over truth, even when it comes to situations that are not in our highest?

"Marry your conscience. Marry the one who makes you want to be a better person."
