Are You a Drain, or a Fountain?
“Be a fountain, not a drain.”
We all know a few folks who tend to bring us down with their neediness, pettiness, and overall negativity. These folks can be downright draining to be around.
On the other hand, you probably know a few folks who, for some reason, make you feel lighter and better about yourself and the world when you’re around them. They’re comfortable in their own skin. They can take a joke. They don’t need you or anyone else to make them feel good. These folks show a genuine interest in you, and seem to pour energy into you like a fountain.
Now, on most days, which one of these categories do you fall into?
What would it take for you to be a fountain for the rest of today? Tomorrow, you can be a drain if you want. But for the rest of today, let’s you and me commit to being fountains.
