This challenge has EMBOLDENED you to evolve and grow, making you feel more joyful and confident but also putting your friendships and relationships to the test.
Many of you have told me (and continue to tell me) that some of the people you call your friends aren’t really that DESERVING of the title. Maybe they call you just to vent about their horrible day and then hang up, leaving you feeling like CRAP before you even realize what happened! Or maybe they are actually pretty good friends about most things, but you have a sinking suspicion they can’t be trusted with what you just accidentally told them.
Oops! (And it happens, doesn’t it?!)
But this week, I DARE YOU to you to realize that you DESERVE so much more than this.
So, I dare you to TAKE BACK your power, and start treating YOURSELF the way you WANT to be treated — with genuine GENEROSITY of spirit, kindness and loving RESPECT.
I dare you, starting TODAY, to choose to spend less time with those who bring you down, and more time with friends who lift you UP, protecting and respecting your energy and HAPPINESS with more diligence and discipline than the biggest, baddest BOUNCER you’ve encountered thus far.
I dare you to be willing to release all guilt you feel for putting distance between yourself and the friends who “need” you, and instead choose to shift your perspective to see how this could actually be in the best interest of ALL people involved. (Seriously!)
And today, and throughout this week, I CHALLENGE YOU to CHOOSE to make more deliberate and CONSCIOUS decisions about who you spend your time with or go out of your way for, knowing with unwavering CERTAINTY that YOU have the power — in THIS MOMENT — to create the VERY friendships and relationships that you’ve been yearning for with ALL YOUR HEART.
Because your happiness is IMPORTANT ENOUGH to do this,
