Be the person who has no time for people’s negativity!
More so than ever I have been on such a positive, inspiring, energizing path. This isn’t how it always was though, this is something I had to learn through real raw and difficult experience.
This past year I had so many people placing their judgement on me, “If I were here I wouldn’t do that,” “I wouldn’t handle things like that,” “she’s making the wrong choices.” Let me tell you all something, I USED to be THAT person, that judged from a distance saying what I would or wouldn’t have done. That was until I had experience with hardship, till things weren’t just peachy. Today, I would never judge a person for their decisions because until you are in that exact situation you have no right to judge, you have no clue of their battles.
After this last year, I was tired of allowing other people’s negativity, poor choices and opinions affect how I was living my life...after-all I thought I had to care, I was taught to treat others how I want to be treated! BUT I realize now, caring and caring from a distance are two very different things.
I am writing this because this week I have gotten A LOT of negativity thrown my way, written on my Facebook wall, via text message, and even private messaged on Facebook. These messages have been about various things but for some reason this week they’ve been flowing in. Before, I would have reacted, let it bring me down, responded negatively...but when I get them now, I sit there and say “Wow, I Wonder what battles that person is fighting causing them this negativity...part of me wants to hug them...” You see, when you’re leading a positive lifestyle, when you’re incorporating positive, energizing, motivating people into your life...you don’t have the time or energy to feed into the negativity Or the gossip, because you’re to busy vibing with the positive.
I challenge each of you to recognize a negative thought today and change it into a positive! Stop judging, stop typing that negative comment or message, change that negativity cycle! Positivity is learned...so start changing your life today!
