I am fortunate enough to have many wonderful people in my life who not only make me happy, but make me a better person. It is important to surround ourselves with people who bring out the best in us.
There was a time in my life in which I was surrounded by people who oozed negativity. The thing about negativity? It is contagious. The more time I spent with people who complained about every little thing, the more I did it myself.
It is draining to live a life in which you focus on the bad!
When I joined a mom's group at my church several years ago, I was suddenly surrounded by people who looked for the good in everything and everyone. They oozed positivity. And the thing about positivity? It's contagious too. So surround yourself with people who bring out the best in you, those who actively look for the positive.
