“Today, I embrace my potential to be, do and have whatever I can dream.”
~ Deepak Chopra ~
I am into the fifth day of Deepak Chopra’s 21 Day Meditation Challenge on Abundance. And so far it has been amazing. In today’s meditation, he brings us to the realization that you are who you are by the company you keep. Interesting.
I was talking to a friend yesterday about what was going on in her life and it seems that she is constantly bombarded by negative people, in-their-heads people who are bringing her down. I was there, at a point in my life. I realized that I had to walk away from those relationships. I know that I have the ability to change, to realize the negativity and the need to be with like-minded people. Yet, it is hard to walk away from relationships that one has tried to cultivate over the years. Sometimes we have to leave them standing in our dust. Divorce the relationship. Move on. Become who you intended to be all along. Release the negativity! Isn’t it far better to release the negativity and sing an inspirational song of a life than to get caught up in their drama, whining and self-pity? To me, that’s like watching a soap opera every day and getting wrapped up in the drama of the actors. Their story becomes real to us. We associate with them. We commiserate with them and allow them to take over our thoughts. Don’t I have enough going on in my life that I have to allow some fictitious characters to control my thoughts?
I walked away from several “possessed” relationships. It was time for me to develop new and positive ways of living a happy and positive life. It is said that what we focus on expands. It’s true!
Expect and accept a splendid existence. Awaken to the unlimited possibilities of life. Awaken and live!
About this photograph: Taken in Klawock, Alaska early one morning as the sun was coming up. I found it to be a beautiful place to dream. I always felt this photo would layer an inspirational thought, and I think I found it. Dream on!
While you are here …. stop over at my Tree of Life.
Live like a tree. Take root and reach for the sky!
