Sometimes I think that we need to be alone,
alone to think about things, think things through,
that downtime, that enables us to get in touch with who we really are and think about where we are wanting to go,
what we have done well,
what didn't quite work out for us.
I do believe that beyond that we need people around us,
not just anybody,
but people who get us,
who are ok when we are our authentic selves,
people who will uplift us,
people who will have our back and help us push past our belief system that might be holding us back,
people who are as invested in us as we are in ourselves.
Those people really exist.
Maybe you are lucky enough to have people around you that.
I remember at times I sure didn't have those people around me.
I love that saying " You become the same as the five people who you hang around with most"
but it is scary sometimes when you check in who those five people are.
Sometimes we let ourselves slide and let the negativity in, maybe we don't know how to move that negativity on.
It is when we surround ourselves closely with those who uplift us, that we will expect the best out of ourselves.
And likewise we become the person who uplifts them and holds them to be the best version of themselves.
