You know when you’re doing something and suddenly you realize something that you never really thought of before, but it’s so obvious you’re not sure why you never thought of it? That’s an “Aha moment.” I recently had one of those and I have to share!
This week has been incredible. We’re vacationing in sunny (partly cloudy, actually but who cares) Florida with some amazing friends as our tour guides. They say ocean air makes you happier, and if you’ve never experienced it, let me tell you it’s true! It’s been a couple years since I’ve been at sea level so this trip was long overdue. I knew I wanted to go to the beach, but I didn’t realize how much I really needed to be here.
I’ve spent a lot of time working on myself in recent years. I wouldn’t change any of that because I have really grown a lot, but this week I realized something. In this place with these people it dawned on me that there actually is nothing wrong with me. I was just surrounded by negative energy. Some people are more affected by the energy around them than others, but we’re all affected by it to some degree.
This was my aha moment. I’m negatively affected by the negative energy that is around me. I need to be around positive energy and find ways to block negative energy from other people. Your energy is contagious so make it positive! I will forever be grateful for this vacation because of what I now know.
Remember to surround yourself with people you want to be like. Rise up and bloom.
