I’ve found that there’s nothing more empowering than learning to take responsibility and accountability for your life. It wasn’t the most exciting or comfortable part of my journey but it was certainly necessary in order to grow. It was actually one of the first steps I had to take in order to be able to not only eventually overcome depression but change my mindset. I didn’t realize that by trying to distance myself from blame and responsibility I was also losing the power I had over my own life. By learning to take responsibility going forward, I was able to put myself in a position of power in my life.
I wanted to share a video with you that takes this a step further. Not only do we need to be responsible for ourselves we are also responsible for who we surround ourselves with! It reminds me of when I was growing up and was taught to be careful who my friends were. I always thought it was a caution of “guilty by association”. It’s only now that I realize that it was deeper than that. It’s about surrounding yourself with people who are on the same wavelength as you. The ones who have similar values and core beliefs. The ones who are not only quick to ground you but swift to empower you. The ones who might not agree with you but believe in you. The ones who want to see you succeed. The ones who want what’s best for you even if it doesn’t match their hope or expectation of you. The ones who would rather watch you soar than make you sink.

Oprah talks about clearing people out of her life whose energy wasn’t supportive of the energy she brings into the world. It sounds harsh but there’s no point in playing with energy that isn’t compatible with yours. It’s like trying to plug an American appliance into a European outlet. The appliance is going to get fried because the current isn’t the same. Your inner circle should be made up of those whose current is compatible with yours. Today I wanted to pass on this reminder to be mindful not only of the energy you bring into the world but the energy you surround yourself with. Thank you for the positive energy you bring to my blog and into the world around you. Keep shining like the bright light you are!
