Fresh Hope – Day 295

I’m sure that every one of us today would love to attract the right kind of people into our lives; people that will have a positive influence on us, people that will pull us up and not drag us down, people that we would be truly glad to call friends.

One of the things that I personally pray each day is that God would bring the right people into my life…nd I also pray for the kind of qualities that I want in a friend. Which I don’t think is a bad thing, however, one quote that really changed my perspective is this: ‘You attract what you are.’

Suddenly, my thought process shifted. No longer did I focus fully on the kind of friend that I wanted to attract, but I began focusing more on the kind of friend that I was to others.

Can I encourage you today? If you’re looking for a generous person, be a generous person. If you’re looking for a positive friend, be a positive friend to others. If you’re looking for kindness, show some kindness. Be what you want to see!

When you begin to have this kind of mindset, you will be amazed at the kind of people that you will attract into your world.
