It's easy to think that we're all alone in the world... that no one gives a rolling donut about us. Ask yourself - Self, is this ACTUALLY true? There's not a living soul out of the 7.6 billion people on the planet who isn't connected to you in some way, shape or form?
Come on, now. If you were to vanish from existence right this second, you'd affect a lot more lives than you think.
So now that we've over the fact that we're not alone in the world, let's chat for a second about who you're surrounded with. Who's in your inner circle? Who is that person or people that you go to when you're bursting with great news or you just have to share a picture of those cute shoes on sale at the mall? Your people are a direct reflection of what's happening now in your life.
Think of your people like mirrors (if you have the Justin Timberlake song in your head right now then we're on the right path) - they'll show you how you feel about yourself, your circumstances and where you want to go.
Say your peeps are your work colleagues & every time you get together, you whine about how silly work is and how you can't believe Sally the Sales Ninny said that to you yesterday (the nerve of that woman!). Sure, it's fun to joke around and laughing is good for you. Consider this - you're surrounding yourself with crap all the time. Does anyone ever talk about how to make work better or is the theme of the day a BMW (b*tch, moan and whine) session? What's that doing for you? Is it elevating you? Does it make you want to run a mile in the wrong direction?
Maybe you've never thought about if your life could be different. What if you didn't have to whine all the time to feel connected with others; what if you could talk about something that's been weighing heavily on your soul and not feel like you're missing some sandwiches from your picnic basket. Find people that you not only love (and not just romantic love... there's ALL kinds of love) but share something in common with.
Take a moment to ask yourself where it is you want to be - spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically & even financially. Where do you stand right now? Who's standing with you in this space? Don't be afraid to walk away from relationships that don't reflect where you are and where you want to go. Remember, everything in life is temporary. Choose to surround yourself with the right people for YOU.
