Here is a recent interaction between me and a close friend;
Justin: You want to go to the salad place.
Justin: You know I just realized that you pulled me into your world. Thank You!
Me: What do you mean?
Justin: If we met for lunch we used to go for pizza or fast food. Then you started eating healthier and we all really thought you were a pain in the ass!
Justin: Yea, but you know what after a while I just got used to it. Now I don’t even give it a second thought. If we get together we have to eat “clean”. In fact I find myself being more conscientious of what I put in my body all the time.
Justin: Yeah, you know it would have been easier for you to give in and eat the crap that we all used to eat. I got to hand it to you. You stuck it out and it paid off. You did not allow us to pull you into our world… You pulled me into your world. THANK YOU!
Moral of the story….
Stay the course…..
Pull your friends into your world…….
Don’t get pulled into theirs…..
