Sustainable Growth.....In Your Life

We read and hear so much about 'sustainable growth' in the news referring to various things, mostly ecologically. I want to talk about sustainable growth in our lives.

So many will only allow themselves to be around like minded people, friend people on Facebook who have their same political views or watch the same news networks. Isn't that like looking in a mirror every day of your life?

I choose something different. I like my own company better than anyone else's but if I only surround myself with people like me how can I learn anything new.

How can I have growth?

Expanding my world is important to me and some of the biggest blessings in my life are the people who are not like me at all. Some of those people are of different races, sexual orientation, religion, political, economic or social status.  I don't care what their family name is, who they slept with last night or who they voted for. I have come to like them for who they are and the interaction with them and my life is much more interesting because they are not like me.

Do yourself a favor in these last days of the year and seek out a couple people to add to your life who aren't like you, even if they are only in your life for a short period of time. 

Put sustainable growth in your life.
