The NAWLS Small Bite for May 5th is
Create a new and improved community.A support network is vital to your success. So, embrace or create a community of supporters who will nurture you throughout your life. Surround yourself with people who love you for who you are, and who will be there for you no matter what. Do business with competent professionals who treat you with respect and good will. Nurture friendships with people who do not base their friendship with you on who they need you to be for them.
Your family can't be chosen, so limit your exposure with family members who are not supportive of your new lifestyle. Spend as much time as possible with people who encourage you. When you add a new person to your community, consider them carefully. This healthy community you are building is for your life.
Action for the day:
Review your relationships. Have you built a supportive and loving community? If not, in your journal, make a list of things you can do to begin that process. Do one thing on your list today.
