A close friend of mine recently reminded me of the phrase “You are who you surround yourself with.” Have you looked at your circle lately? 🤔
At this point in my life, I’ve chosen to surround myself with people who truly care about me, support me and adjust my crown when it falls. I’ve had friends in the past that we’re self centered and pretentious. They cared more about appearances than they did about being a person worthy of admiration. Those relationships no longer feed my soul so I let them go. But on the flip side, I have friends who came in to my life and never left. They loved me when I wasn’t very lovable and believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself.
Life goals can change along your journey and that’s ok! Make sure you’re surrounding yourself with people are happy to be along for the ride and cheer you on! 🎉
I remember being a kid and complaining to my grandmother about my knees hurting. She said “Oh, those are just growing pains..”.
Why is growth so painful? Is that why we avoid pushing ourselves or facing problems? 🤷🏻♀️
I recently had husband and wife clients break up with me because my schedule, business model and price no longer fits their needs. I totally get it and wish them love on their journey. It stings a little but I’m growing so this is part of that process.
I have outgrown friends and relationships, had painful things that happen that shook me to my core. Guess what? I didn’t die! I grew from those experiences. I appreciate more and love harder now. Was the pain worth? Hell yes! Don’t let fear keep you from growing!!
