“Negative people negate themselves from greatness and being the beneficiary of the greatness in others. Be proactively positive today!”
That quote above is a reminder of why it is important to guard your sphere of influence carefully. If I cannot immediately remove myself from a situation where negative energy and unkind rhetoric is prevalent, I mentally switch off or allow it to pass over me like water off a ducks back.
We may not be able to run from everything, but [to a certain degree] we can choose what we carry with us. Therefore, if it is not uplifting, encouraging, motivating nor inspiring you, let it go. At least that’s what I endeavor to live by at the moment and I’m pretty sure that I’m not alone.
