"It’s better to be alone than to be in bad company"

Have you even had a friend (or loved one) that was toxic? By that I mean someone who constantly complained about something or always was negative - sarcastic -said things to you that that hurt but said "only joking"? I'm sure you have. I have - I had one for many years and at the time she was the only friend I had. Sad now that I look back first because I limited myself to her and second because now I realize how much time/energy/emotion I wasted on her. At the time I didn't realize just how toxic she was but now that I've been away from her for many years - whew - how spiritually and emotionally draining those years were. Looking back - it would have been better to be alone.

I now surround myself with positve - supportive friends and my whole outlook on life is totally different. I totally believe that if you're around a person long enough (good or bad) you begin to pick up their good or bad habits. I'm now picking up good habits with good people and I'm very aware now when a toxic person enters my world and they are quickly removed.

“All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.”

~ Walt Disney ~
(1901-1966)

Definition of courage -
1.The ability to do something that frightens one
2.Strength in the face of pain or grief

My thoughts - especially on #1 is that we create most of our limitations in our own minds - there is probably very little we can do if we set our minds to do them. Sometimes it takes encouragement from others - sometimes more education - sometimes a good look in the mirror and confronting our own selves and realizing that there really is a person who is good and whole and talented and creative and smart and loveable looking back and we are NOT anything like what someone else said that was mean or hurtful or discouraging.

If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.

My thoughts - how very true!!!

Saying someone is ugly doesn’t make you any prettier

Sometimes people don't think that what they say means anything to another but it truly does. And most times people say ugly things because they themselves feel ugly inside.

Making one person smile can change the world – maybe not the whole world, but their world

Hope everyone has a great Sunday!
