People can be negative. Negative people can ruin your life, dull your spirit and hope of achieving your best life. I have found myself around negative people and it is heartbreaking. For someone to find the negative in everything I assume is exhausting. When I am around negative people my focus on the positive becomes evident. My thinking is different. My attitude and outlook on life is different. Surround yourself with people who understand that challenges are opportunities for growth, not circumstances that were meant to break you. Surround yourself with people who understand life is not perfect, yet you must find the joy in the imperfections. Surround yourself with people who can picture themselves helping people, rather than avoiding them. Surround yourself with people who see a rainy day and look at the day as an opportunity to stay in and read a book or play a game with loved ones. Surround yourself with people who dream. People who dream big, better, larger than the life they are living now. Surround yourself with people who want to learn new things and embrace the unknown. Surround yourself with people who smile, vs those who have a frown on their face all the time. Positivity is contagious, but so is negativity, so surround yourself with positive people, and if you find yourself around those who are negative, BE the positive light to shine over their darkness!
