What better why to illustrate this point than a garbage can with a nasty face and flies buzzing around it. It is our responsibility to manage what comes into our lives and our homes. Just because someone wants to be my friend or my kid's friend doesn't mean I have to let them in. Just because I see something I want doesn't mean I get it. I will succeed or fail depending on my choices. All ends have a beginning. Where will I begin? Where will I end?
