Just as trees grow their branches toward the sun, spend more time with the people who are your source of light. Sunlight seems like an abundant, infinite resource, but not in the thick forests. Competition for sunlight is one of the strongest factors shaping forest architecture. Trees have adapted by learning to bend toward the light. But is that what our mind does?
Spend more time thinking about the good people in your life. Who are these people?
Likely, they find joy in helping you. They have good energy. They help you feel worthy and treat you with kindness. Thinking about them brings a smile to your face. The more time you spend with these people, the higher your energy and the better your self-worth.
Reminding yourself of what’s special about these people will help you remember what’s good in this world. It will help you feel you live in a kind world. Let’s build and live in a good, kind world today.
