When you surround yourself with passionate, positive and inspired individuals, there is nowhere to go but up. These people are possibility thinkers, idea generators and love to give and receive support.
By making a conscious decision to live your life with less negativity in it, you become the arbiter of what you let in and what you don't. We always have a choice as to how we want to live our life and what kind of quality we want it to have.
While we should certainly be there as a shoulder to lean on for our friends and family in need, when there are people who only bring negativity into our lives, it's time to start reconsidering why they're in our lives at all.
