Enjoy Your Own Company!

“Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.” ~Bruce Lee
When you hit your lowest point in life the only reasonable way to go is up, right? A low point can be classified in any form you want it to be. A break up, a loss, emotional problems, mental health, family sadness, etc., etc. But it has occurred to me in the past month that when you hit your lowest point, regardless of what it might be, I found that the person’s company I enjoyed most was in fact myself. Getting together with friends was amazing because I needed the support immensely, talking with my family was wonderful because I needed to get it all off my chest, but when it came down to it, I thoroughly enjoyed my own company as well. Not to sit and feel sorry for myself, but to sit in the graces of my own being and soak up my own goodness. I came to the realization that my life was becoming about a person who should have been insignificant from the moment they chose not to be a part of it. When you are at the point in your life where you’re letting other people control your emotions, thoughts, words, and actions you will soon realize that life becomes completely meaningless. You are allowing the existence of another human being to control your happiness. This is a reminder to all of you that YOU ARE YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND! When you can be your own best friend, your life will gain so much more meaning. Half of you is made up by your experiences, your friends, and your family. But the other half, is you! It’s who you create, it’s who YOU choose to be! Let’s work on enjoying our own company! Enjoying all that WE have to offer this beautiful world!

“My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth.” ~Abraham Lincoln

As I watched the fireworks from my picture window, I realized how thankful I was to be blessed to live in such a beautiful country! We are very lucky to live in such a wonderful place with so much abundance in love, prosperity, hope, and peace! I have to remind myself that not all humans have the privilege or opportunity to live as freely or outspokenly as we do! Let’s remember this: What we say, do, and how we go about life represents how much we appreciate being alive! Before you do anything, remember the impact you will leave on others after doing so! There is nothing more beautiful than being human, but ever more so, being a human who enjoys life and who believes it to be a beautiful place!
