Negativity is contagious like the flu in the middle of the winter. It spreads its nastiness around without even being detected, but is totally preventable if we just get our preventative dose of positive energy before being exposed.
My parents always kept new cars when I was younger. I feel like a great deal of my childhood was spent in car dealerships making swaps.
Having a new car meant that outside of normal maintenance you didn’t have to worry about repairs and so on. There was never a time that I ever worried about if the car would crank and start up.
One weekend my parents and I set off on a weekend road trip to visit family about four hours away. Along the way we stopped and got gas and proceeded on our way.
As I rode in the backseat I remember the car began to ride funny and kinda start put-putting up the highway. I got scared cause I had never experienced this before.
We eventually had to pull over and call for help because the car wouldn’t go, the put-putting eventually just brought us to a complete stop.
When we got to the mechanic and he had the chance to assess the problem with the car, he advised that the problem was that we had put bad gas in the tank.
Negative energy is just like that gas.Negative energy can stop you right in your tracks! #nonegativity Click To Tweet
I remember when I was younger, my mom would always tell me that certain girls were just not good influences and therefore they couldn’t be part of my circle (or me in theirs) because of the affects they could have.
Back then, I thought my mom was being a “hater” and just didn’t want me to be in the “in crowd”. While, honestly I didn’t fit in, I sometimes tried to put a square peg in a circle hole just to spite her.
I didn’t understand the whole positive/negative energy thing back then, but I TOTALLY get it now.
When you let influences deposit their negative energy in your spirit or your “tank” it can, rather quickly, slow you down and even bring you to a complete stop.We are designed to be fueled and propelled by positive energy #goodvibesonly Click To Tweet
Have you ever been on the down side of things and needed a pick me up, boost of positivity, a dose of hope if you will, only to talk to someone in hopes of feeling better and only end up feeling worse.
We are designed to be fueled and propelled by positive energy. Meaningful dialogue, words of encouragement, hope, and positivity to push forward.
Just like when I was a teenager hanging with the girl whose mom gave her no boundaries, being influenced by what I surrounded myself with, the same is true as an adult who chooses to hang with people who have constant complaints, conversations about things that don’t hold value and literally and figuratively suck the life out of you.
I say all this to say that you have to mind your energy friends. Be careful of what you let get in your tank and slow you down or even bring you to a complete stop.You have to mind your energy #powerofpositivity Click To Tweet
Find sources of positive energy and let them fuel you to push forward and grow into the best version of yourself.
