A gift from my Aunt,that I'd like to share

This touched me, and spoke to me on many levels. It iswritten by my Aunt. Sorry about the all caps....



"LETTER OF WISDOM FOR THE NEW YEAR:

LIFE IS A THEATER! EVERYONE CAN'T BE IN THE FRONT ROW. INVITE YOUR AUDIENCE CAREFULLY. NOT EVERYONE IS SPIRITUALLY HEALTHY AND MATURE ENOUGH TO HAVE A FRONT ROW SEAT IN OUR LIVES.THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE THAT NEED TO BE LOVED FROM A DISTANCE.

OBSERVE THE RELATIONSHIPS AROUND YOU. PAY ATTENTION TO: WHICH ONES LIFT AND WHICH ONES LEAN? WHICH ONES ENCOURAGE AND WHICH ONES DISCOURAGE? WHICH ONES ARE A PATH OF GROWTH UPHILL AND WHICH ONES ARE GOING DOWN HILL.WHEN YOU LEAVE CERTAIN PEOPLE, DO YOU FEEL BETTER OR WORSE? WHICH ONES ALWAYS HAVE DRAMA OR DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND,KNOW AND APPRECIATE YOU AND THE GIFT THAT LIES WITHIN YOU?

WHEN YOU SEEK GROWTH, PEACE OF MIND, LOVE AND TRUTH, THE EASIER IT WILL BECOME FOR YOU TO DECIDE WHO GETS TO SIT IN THE FRONT ROW AND WHO SHOULD BE MOVED TO THE BALCONY OF YOUR LIFE.

YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU... BUT YOU CAN CHANGE THE PEOPLE YOU ARE AROUND. ASK FOR GODLY WISDOM AND CHOOSE WISELY THE PEOPLE WHO SIT IN THE FRONT ROW OF YOUR LIFE..."


Fantastic words and wisdom from a very special woman. I just wanted to share with you all. Happy New Year!
