Energy is the most valuable resource we have. It affects how people feel when we walk in a room. How we show up and love. How well we're able to look at the big picture instead of small annoyances.
So I have to constantly take account of where my energy is. Hold myself accountable. Are the people and situations I put myself in good for who I am? And y'all. I'm lucky to have a solid set of humans who love fiercely and have my back.
But every once and a while, I find myself around energy that negatively affects who I am. Makes me question my worth. And the shitty thing is, I often feel a responsibility to stay. Like it's my job to fix the thing. A problem. A person. A project. That it's my fault the way it treats me- somehow.
And it's not until I put on my big girl panties and wave it good bye (or at least give myself a healthy distance from it) that I realize I shouldn't have let it in in the first place. That I'm allowed to put up signs that say "YOU SHALL NOT PASS" to energy that wants to bring down the Kendall party. Buh bye Felicia- I got things to accomplish.
So.. If you're reading this and need a sign that it's okay to cut something out of your life that makes you not like yourself.. here it is honey child.
You're straight magic and deserve to have only the things in your life that remind you that you've got something good to give this world.
