"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too, can become great.When you are seeking to bring big plans to fruition, it is important with whom you regularly associate. Hang out with friends who are likeminded and who are also designing purpose-filled lives. Similarly, be that kind of friend for your friends."
Thank you to all of you who have been that kind of friend. Thank you for loving me despite my many flaws and weaknesses. Thank you for encouraging me. Thank you for lifting me. Thank you for being the type of people that inspire me on a regular basis. I'm truly grateful for all of the really 'great' people in my life who have done and continue to do so much for me, my family, and so many people around us. This quote reminded me of all of the great examples that around me and the type of person I want to be.
