The Company You Keep

They say you are what you eat;
the same goes for the company you keep.
You shouldn’t have to be less than your very best
because you fear others will feel inadequate.
Dismiss those who don’t have your best interest at heart,
for their negative energy will harbor within you
and ultimately be a reflection of you.
Beware of those who stroke your ego and hide the truth,
their intentions are cruel
they want to see you do good but never better than them.
Anticipate the loathe and be ever ready to stand for what is right.
Differentiate but never hate
your foes, for they are the driver behind your success.
Surround yourself with those who make you hungry for life,
unleash your full potential
enhance your light and nourish your soul.
Guide you when you’ve lost your way.
Friends come and go
you’ve simply evolved past them and that’s okay
any loss is for something better to come.

 

 

I No Longer…

I no longer tolerate the presence of those who don’t have my best interest at heart.
People who exude negative energy have no place in my life as they inhibit my growth.
I no longer conform to the ways of society in order to be accepted and/or validated. Through my spiritual journey I have realized that I should only be concerned with things that make me happy. It’s my life and I am the ruler of my destiny!
I have no tolerance for those who have no appreciation for nature and seek to destroy it.
I believe in a world of diversity; no one culture is superior to another. Arguments that are biased and simply lack logic enrages me.
I refrain from socialising with educated fools, and those who suffer from sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity irritate me.
I do not get along with those who are selfish and lack empathy. I believe in the power of love.
I have realized that patience is a treasured virtue and I refuse to waste it on things that don’t deserve the little i do have.
I have reached a point in my life where I’m learning to let go of the things that displeases me and accept the things I cannot change.
