We all have people in our lives that we choose to spend time with or not.  What is measure you use to allow someone into that group?  I learned early in life that you get much more enjoyment out of life when you see people for what they can do, who they can become vs what they did or who they have been.  My challenge/thought of the day is to try to see the people around you for their futures not their failures and see if it changes your perspective on the day.
