Why Surrounding yourself with POSITIVE people is a game changer

I don’t know about you .. but when I was younger and still now, Mum always said to me to surround myself with good and kind people and to "treat others how you would like to be treated." I know from ‘not so nice’ experience that this isn’t always the easiest thing to do, one of those easier said than done scenarios. School for example,  its very hard to get away from people when you all hang out in the same group or have classes together. As girls, we are very guilty of going back for more when we get treated badly by both girls and guys, I know I am. Toxic relationships are not good for any part of you and you deserve to be treated beautifully! 


I will be brutally honest, it has probably taken the last 4 years for me to truly realise my self worth and realise that I do deserve to be treated right and from a place of love. It hasn’t been easy and I've definitely been let down by lots of people, had my heart broken and been at the lowest that I will hopefully ever be! I’m not perfect, like anyone and have probably let down friends as well and hurt people too. I guess though as the saying goes “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” , cheesy but very relevant in situations like this. While its never nice to feel worthless, sad and down all these experiences shape and make you a stronger and better person. I would not be the person I am today, if I hadn't been through what I have and learnt so much about myself and other people. 


I truly believe that if you find and make your own happiness and project positivity into the situations you are in, at some point that love and positivity will come back to you. (Haha eventually, I did start to wonder how long it would take) 


I took a lot of time for myself to heal and truly be happy and content with myself and my own company. I realised that relationships don’t complete me, they complement me and I don’t rely on them for my happiness. They do make me extremely happy though!! Life is so much more fun when you have beautiful and amazing people to share it with.


For me, 2017 has been the year. I finally feel like everything is falling into place, it is so refreshing because it definitely has not always been like this. When you have friends that build you up, are there with you for all your successes and downfalls and people that choose to be there for you everyday no matter what .. everything seems better and I know that if I’m having a bad day there is always someone who is there! You really can’t put a price on these relationships 


Thank you to my pals, new and old. The special people in my life, you know who you are! To the people that have always been on my team and to the people that choose to be on my team everyday! Your love, support, laughter and encouragement never goes unappreciated! Thank you for bringing so much light and happiness to my life


I hope you have or find your people, who choose you everyday and you choose them! Don’t lose faith, because trust me they are out there somewhere. And once you find them make sure you let them know how much you appreciate them! 


Love and Health,
