All things aside, when it comes to the relationship business…it’s your company that matters.
Monday has arrived and I am ready to get down to business! If you are open to the next step in seeking out the love you so richly deserve, then let’s talk about relationship goals!
The last time we met at this round table, we were on the subject of the company we will choose to keep in this fight. During my reveal of some of my battle buddies in my last post, I hope you were able to recognize my position at the table. I have pulled up a second seat to sup and drink of my cup with my gate-keeper and king, and I extended an invitation to you. With him at the head of the table, I place the guest list in his hands for a closer look. If you have taken your position, then you’re first in line before anyone else. He’s checking you out and your line up.
“Bad company corrupts good character” 1 Corinthians 15:33
So back to the goal…what are we aiming for again? An affair to remember or a love to be recorded in the history books of all time. Consider this…every great love story begins with good characters… There is a Japanese proverb that says if the character of a man is not clear to you, look at his friends. If we are going to fight the good fight for love for our own selves, we need to be able to be in company with those that are making better choices than we have been used to.
What are we using to measure up
“You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with” Jim Rohn
In love and life, I want relationships that are above average… especially the relationship with myself. I say a bucket full of hope adds up to a lot be grateful for but in weighted matters of the heart we can’t just hope for the best. The best battle buddies will be those that you are grateful for because they are there, tried and true, at all times… even when the odds are not in your favor. Good quality friends with true character will always be above average when measured on the scale.
“Associate yourself with people of good quality, for it is better to be alone than in bad company.” Booker T. Washington
We have already established that it is not recommended for you to battle this one out on your own, so it is best to use discernment and choose wisely. I know I did. I look forward to seeing you again on the other side of the gate!
