Building a Community

 Choose your friends wisely. This implies an important question; did we in fact make that choice or was it made for us? It’s imperative to consider how the friendships we maintain were formed. Did we consciously chose our friends or were there other forces pushing us together? Did we just happen to be in the right place at the right time? Do you believe we have this choice or is everything preordained?  Regardless of the answers one fact is true; community is at the heart of human existence.   We now arrive at an important moment. This is the point where we must stop and consider whether our current circle of friends has a positive or negative influence on our life. Do they reflect our brightest attributes? Are they people who motivate us to be the best version of ourselves? Are their interests aligned with ours yet different enough to enrich our lives? If they are not then it’s time for a change.
