There are a lot of people at Barrett Jackson. Lots and lots and lots.
Any time I go to a big event like this it involves a certain amount of people watching.
What strikes me every time is that there are a lot of different ways you can live life.
How you dress, how much money you make, whether you smile a lot, positive attitude or negative attitude, etc. – you get to pick.
Some of us (myself included more than I would probably admit) are maybe (probably) letting how others live their lives influence us a little too much.
We worry about what to wear or what others might think of us. We wonder why others have what we don’t have. We compare and contrast. We allow envy and bitterness to creep in.
In the end, we get to pick. It’s our choice what kind of person we want to be.
And other people are watching.
What they see is up to you.
What if they saw love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control?
Our lives are given purpose and meaning through the relationships we foster. Relationships that blossom in proportion to our ability to live out those things just listed.
Embrace your opportunity to be a person worth watching.
Make it a great day.
