Company culture

Young Women Travel Together Concept

If you joined us on Monday, you know we started the week giving some thought to the company we keep. The people with whom we choose to surround ourselves are important for a lot of reasons. They affect your energy, your mindset, and even your physical state. Their advice and opinions (spoken and not) influence the way you perceive yourself, and impact the boundaries you place around what you think you can be and do.

I know you want to think you can outsmart their vibes, but you can’t – at least not completely. Also, though – you shouldn’t need to.  Read More


Monday Moment: Fan out

Rumi_set life fire quote w tag

If last week’s posts could be distilled down to a few key themes, one of them was definitely courage. Courage to listen to your intuition, courage to do things that scare you, courage to make choices that make others ask questions. Courage to follow your path, when it doesn’t look like anyone else’s.

Because it shouldn’t. Then it wouldn’t be yours.

Today is about the powerful choice to surround yourself with people who support your growth. Not “yes men” and “yes women,” but people who are willing to ride with you as you evolve, and maybe even ask a few questions themselves — the kind that make you grow more, though, not the kind designed to hold you back.

The people who see your fire and say yaaasssss, get it, not the kind who bring a hose (bless their hearts). And you know the deal with those folks, right?

They’re not really afraid of your fire. They’re afraid of their own.

Don’t worry, they’ll be fine. They’re on their path, too. Send love, find your tribe, and tell them to bring ALL the fans along with them.

 


Monday Moment: Good choice

Edmund Lee_Surround Yourself quote w tag

In mindfulness, we often talk about observing our thoughts and sometimes even making choices about which ones serve us well, and therefore get to stay, and which we would be best to simply allow to pass by without an invitation to stick around. Same goes with the people we choose to keep in our lives. Eventually, the energy of your surroundings becomes a part of your energy. Might as well make it as supportive, encouraging, and positive as possible.

Have a mindful week!
