You are the company you keep.

The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.

~Epictetus, Greek speaking Stoic Philosopher

I have often wondered whether each of us is born with adequate resilience to see this life through the highs and the lows. I have often wondered if each of us is born with sufficient flexibility to wade through the changes in the world as they present themselves. Then I am struck by the realization that regardless of what kind of resilience we are born with or how flexible we are, as long as we keep good company as support, we will rise above anything. We are never alone in life as long as we choose connections with people who uplift our spirits. We are never without love as long as we take the risk and allow positive people to come into our lives. The true key to a successful life is our ability to join with a collection of beautiful souls who bring love and laughter on our journey no matter how easy or difficult. See the angels in human form who are standing to the left and to the right of each of us. Then don’t worry any longer because through all our highs and lows, if we keep company with people who uplift us—even if we lose our way—they will help us get back on course so that we can continue with a renewed sense of internal joy and happiness once again.

Magical Key to Bliss: Choose the company of people who uplift you.

  1. This is another great post. Even though we sometimes have to deal with those who are less than kind, it’s important that we surround ourselves with people who try to understand and support us. Kindness is important and it’s essential that we are kind to others and allow ourselves to be surrounded by those who are kind to us.
