People inspire you or they drain you. Pick them wisely!
~ Hans F. Hansen ~
It is your choice.
There are no mistakes …. there are only lessons. Life repeats those lessons for us until we learn them and sometimes it takes on various forms. Sometimes it takes a lot of time for it to sink into our being and we finally learn from those lessons.
Those we associate with are only mirrors of ourselves. There is something that person has that has attracted you to them, be it something you love about yourself, or something you hate about yourself. Ultimately, the choice is up to you what you do with them. You have everything you need to make that decision. All the answers lie within you, just look, listen and trust your own best judgement.
Make the happy choice because you are in the driver’s seat.
Once you make your mind up to be happy, everything will change. Let go of all the emotional baggage. Give yourself permission to be happy.
While you aren’t always happy all the time, and that’s OK, accept the times when you aren’t. Focus on how your body feels when you are aren’t happy. Perhaps letting go of limiting beliefs and stress, along with emotional baggage might help you get more present and be aware of those feelings. It’s your decision, your choice.
If you choose to look on the bright side of life, your life will brighten. What you focus on will manifest and the outcome will be far more positive. And don’t forget to smile. Release the true optimist within you! That alone will draw those positive and inspiring people into your life that you want to associate with.
