Do you have a positive peeps possé?

Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.  ~ Oprah Winfrey

I am SUPER fortunate to have so many incredible people in my life who support me, encourage me, challenge me, and love me in spite of all my idiosyncrasies (we all have them!) and craziness. And I am extremely grateful for each and every one of them.

We all need those people in our lives that lift us up, help us to see the positive, raise our energy levels. You know what I mean… the people you just LOVE being around, because being in their presence instantly makes you happy?

And on the flip side, you’ve also likely experienced being around people that simply drain your energy, bring you down, and are full of negativity. Perhaps you don’t even notice while around them, however you leave their presence feeling simply EXHAUSTED?!?

Life is too short, and we have too many important things to be doing, to be around anyone other than those who make us feel good, those that make us happy, those that we can be totally ourselves with and will always love us

You need to have your own ‘Positive Peeps Posse.’ What is that, you may ask?

A group of people ~ be them alive or dead, friends or strangers ~ who inspire you, bring you joy, make you want to be the best version of yourself.

Ready to create your OWN Positive Peeps Possé’? Heres how:
  1. Brainstorm a list of 5 -10 people who you look up to, bring positivity into your life, act as your cheerleader. (This list can also include folks you havent even met yet, however you know would be cheering you on (e.g. Ellen DeGeneres is on mine!)
  2. Reflect on who is on that list, and who is NOT.
  3. Acknowledge the peeps in your life that ARE on that list. Let them know you appreciate them!
  4. Consider the peeps in your life that you perhaps expected to be on the list, and yet are not.
  5. Choose what you want to do about it.


Are there people in your life that are in your possé, and yet it’s been a while since you reached out to them?

Are there people in your life that perhaps are no longer serving you, that you may need to let go of?

Are YOU acting as a member of other positive peeps’ possés?


They say you become the average of the five people you hang around with most…

Who are you hanging around? And who are you being when others are hanging around you?

Surround yourself only by those who lift you up. Create your own positive peeps possé. Be a positive peeps person yourself. (Click to tweet it out!)

Happy Autumn, and have a FAB week!
