"...surround yourself with positive people..." ~ Activating Compassion ~
In a world where many people like to dwell on negativity, drama, competition, and judgment; it is important to find those people that choose to be happy, that offer a positive and supportive energy for you. Even the happiest and drama free people know the value of this; because the reality is that no matter how wise, successful, beautiful, etc. that we are it is wonderful to have those people that are willing to shine a light in your challenges.
What we receive in life, greatly depends on what we choose to surround ourselves with. Few people can be 100% into the positive, at least not in a 3D world. However, all we really have to do is get to at least 51%; although it is more around the 70% range where we really tend to notice and feel the difference. Yes, it is simply about balance; and having more of what is positive than negative.
Often times thought bouts of depression, frustration, anxiety, etc. come because we are surrounded with more negative influences than positive ones. Let's say your work environment is a negative one or that you have to work around lots of people that are negative. A full time job is going to consume a good 40-60 hours out of your week. That is already that is about 30% - 45% of your life.
This is why it is so important to choose your work and home environments carefully; because they will have the biggest influences on what you are creating and receiving into your life. Challenges are part of the natural ebb and flow of life; but our ability to handle them as they come, will be based on the space we choose to keep ourselves in and what we surround ourselves with to support us through them.
