Ripples #915: The Living Invitation!
Dec 5, 2016
Be with those who help your being.
You’ll need coffee shops and sunsets and road trips. Airplanes and passports and new songs and old songs, but people more than anything else: you will need other people and you will need to be that other person to someone else, a living breathing screaming invitation to believe better things.

I wrapped up my fall adventures by spending some time in Florida with my longtime friends at Athletic Business Conference and a quick trip to Wisconsin to make some new friends at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. I encouraged both groups to think about the people they spend time with at work and in life, and pay special attention to notice who consistently lifts them UP and identify those who, intentionally or not, leaves them feeling drained.
It has been my experience that life gets better as we spend more time enjoying and acknowledging the lifter uppers and graciously limiting time around the drainers. Make that your homework this week, and see if it makes a difference.
