Who you hang out with has an undeniable effect on what you morph into. We are constantly changing. By this I mean in all aspects. You are not the person that you were at the beginning of this blog. Physically you have already had cells die, and others born to take their place. As you read this blog, your brain is forming new connections, as you start to change the way that you think. You are also possibly recalling past memories to draw similarities to what I am discussing with you right now. Chemically, you are different because your body is acting like a huge pharmacy, constantly releasing and absorbing “drugs” into your body at the right place and time.
So, if we are constantly in a state of flux, then we can determine who we want to change into, by surrounding ourselves with the things that will bring about the person we want to become. One of thees is hanging out with people who add to your life the positive things you wish to attract yourself. This is not an easy thing to do. Many times we tend to hang out with people who are exactly like us. The problem with that, is that there is no growth that can occur. Of course, that scenario would be better than hanging out with someone who has bad habits, and therefore has the potential to bring us down!
So, I guess you have to decide whether you would like to stay the same, grow, or regress.
If you have been following this blog for at least a week, I think you know where I stand. I hang out with people who challenge me, whether that means mentally, spiritually, or physically. I hang out with healthy, happy, and intelligent individuals. I surround myself with those that share my understanding that health comes from within. With that understanding, only great conversations can occur.
