Who Is In Your Circle?

As life progresses, we typically go through cycles of gaining and releasing friends (and sometimes family). Who we surround ourselves with helps to shape us as we grow. Therefore, the people you keep in your “circle” is essential to your success.

Over the years, I have cultivated the greatest group of friends {that I am so beyond blessed to have}. Each one has helped shape me in one way or another, but they have all helped lift me to where I am today. This blog post is a combination of sending out gratitude to all my loves and sharing the ideal qualities to look for in a friend.

Here is a list of possible qualities you might be missing out on:

  1. The childhood best friend: This person keeps me grounded by way of reminding me where I’ve been. We don’t talk often, but when we do we pick up right where we left off. It is a gift to have someone so loyal and trustworthy to love me in spite of my terrible younger years. I don’t know where I would be today without them.
  2. The “squish”: This person is the one you can count on when you need a lap to lay on and cry. We make dreams happen because we encourage and push each other to do amazing things because we know we are SO beyond capable. Again, the loyalty and love that radiates from this lovely soul is contagious. This best friend is essential in “leveling up” in life. When things get tough, she reminds me it just means I’m leveling up. When things aren’t tough, we can be silly and roll in the grass. It’s the best of both worlds.
  3. The “rose”: This person ignites my need for knowledge. She reminds me that I deserve the best and am beyond beautiful. She gives me confidence and takes me outside my comfort zone when it is needed. This wonderful human sparks my desire for adventure and helps me rid myself of complacency. Who knew a friendship formed in an instant could be so rewarding?
  4. The “nancy”: This person keeps the silly side of me around. She continuously lets me know that life need not be so serious, but rather sarcastic and sassy. She revs up my lady power and reminds me that a strong, independent woman in a business suit can be sexy.
  5. The “family”: This is a group of some of the greatest people to ever walk the earth. They are always there for me – I don’t even have to ask. They love me unconditionally in spite of my flaws. They know me and understand me to my very essence. We’ve only known each other for a short time, but I will love them forever. They are part of my greatest support system, and I owe them my amazing ability to connect to people of all different ages and cultures.
  6. The “sibling”: This person has seen me in my best and worst of times and still chooses to stand by my side. We have slowly grown closer as we realize we are the only ones who truly know what it is like to deal with our crazy family from our unique perspective. This person calls me out when I am ridiculous and lifts me up when I succeed. This is a relationship to cherish forever.
  7. The “community”: This is the collection of people I see every day that play a significant part of my life by sharing all the love and good energy. Hugs and good vibes all around.

 

The people who you surround yourself with will either raise or lower your life frequency. Be sure who you have in your circle is the best and let go of the rest. You’ll be amazed at how wonderful it feels to be lifted up instead of weighed down. You deserve it!
