I love the Real Housewives franchise. I know it’s shallow television most of the time and I LOVE IT. Don’t judge me. It’s so entertaining and often has some great takeaways! Anyway, one of my favorite quotes comes from the amazing Caroline Manzo.
“If you hang out with garbage, you start to stink.”
So eloquent, I know. (That’s Jersey for you, take us or leave us but we call it like we see it!) But it’s true, and so is the reverse. Your energy attracts similar energies, good, bad, or otherwise. Therefore a mood can become contagious. By staying in a bad mood, you may notice your kids becoming more difficult and irritable. By laughing and making jokes, you may notice your friends and family become equally lighthearted.
Taking charge of your energy, feeding your soul with what it needs, and sharing that energy with the world will influence the people in your life and bring new people in as well. So let’s attract lovely things and lovely people and leave the stinky garbage on the curb.
Caroline would be proud… 😊.
