Who you surround yourself with matters. Simply speaking, most of us have people in our lives who bring us up and bring us down. Sometimes we need both of those people to give us varying perspectives within our lives. However, sometimes we don’t need the people who bring us down to sabotage our priorities, taking up our time, energy and positive outlook. If you find yourself giving more than 50% of your energy to those who just “don’t get it,” or suck up your energy, it may be time to re-evaluate.
This week, our blogspiration challenge wants you to take note of who builds you up, inspires you and most of all that you look forward to spending time with whether by text, phone or in person. Whoever those people are, let’s give them more time because in the end that means you are giving yourself more time to stay motivated, be yourself and build up your energy. Everyone else? Start to set a boundary this week to limit your time with those who bring you down. Rules usually help such as “Ok, I am going to give this conversation 5 minutes, if it’s still negative I will excuse myself.” Give yourself the gift of positive relationships and let go of the ones that continue to drain you. Positive vibes from positive people is coming your way!
