So someone left me a voicemail the other day. It was so beautiful, just a friend calling to say hi. She’s really good at that… just checking in, just a quick call here and there. At the end of the voicemail she said “so anyway, just want to tell you that I’m really inspired by you and love you”. I totally felt inspiring! And inspired!! This got me thinking about all the inspiring people in my life and how they each have played a part in my journey to become the best me.
Surrounding yourself with people who love you and inspire you is so powerful. So integral to our souls feeling nurtured and safe. It's integral to feeling valued and supported. Could we survive without it?
Ones journey through life is so much more beautiful and rewarding having positively interacted with others and it's also undeniably an easier existence! Alas - forming and nurturing relationships takes conscious effort! For example, sometimes family can be a pain in the butt! But working through their painfulness makes the good times so much better (and genuine).
My inspirational people have fallen into four categories : FAMILY : FRIENDS : BEST FRIENDS : AND : MENTORS :
When I was sorting through this in my head I realised they are actually all the same person! Friends can be family. Family can be best friends. Best friends can be mentors. Mentors can be family. Over years of nurturing these relationships, the lines blur and everyone becomes a body of positive energy urging you towards your dream. It actually doesn't matter how you came to meet them or where they 'sit' in your life.
So when you find your Super People; keep them close by at all times, nurture them and their successes and tell them!! Remind them how much inspirational energy you feel in them.
** Also slow down contact with toxic people. You know - the ones who talk about themselves constantly, who drain your energy, who compare themselves to you and put you down to even it out. Don't let it enter your positive zone! You are wonderful and you deserve the best that this universe has to offer. You need to help yourself first!
Go on! Get out there and tell all your Super People how amazing they are and let them wield their super powers over you!!
