Bonjour my splendid peacocks! Hope you are doing well mentally and emotionally.
I started to write this article in NYC but I am finishing it, here in Port Saint Lucie, Florida. I am truly happy to spend my last days of 2020 here.
I feel that I am writing right on time, just few days before 2021, which is great for new resolutions…
If you have ONE job to do to start your new year, start with that one: REMOVE TOXIC PEOPLE FROM YOUR LIFE.
It is hard but very much needed, and you won’t find peace of mind until you got rid of them. The society we are living in is complicated enough, and you need serenity to function. If you are a business owner, a CEO, an entrepreneur, a leader or a parent; you have responsibilities, your brain runs like a locomotive and you can NOT allow people who are in your life to disturb your peace more than contributing to your happiness.
Sometimes it might be easier to separate yourself from some people, but sometimes you love some of them so much than it breaks your heart to kick them out. As negative as they are for you, they become your comfort zone and you think that you are better suffering with them than suffering without them… But remember, you start to evolve once you get out of your comfort zoneˆˆ Without them, it is going to be painful as hell but the light is right in front you.
And because of beliefs, traditions, cultures, we tend to think that we have to stick to some people no matter what. I am talking about family: parents, siblings, spouse, kids etc. If they are giving headaches, heartaches, body aches and so on, you need to find the strength to move on without them. You are capable and worthy! Toxic people are not fate, they are choice. Negative for you right now, doesn’t necessarily mean that they are evil people. They are just nor for you right now. You have to make a decision… A tough one but mandatory one for your own sake. And maybe the “break-up” might just be temporary, or maybe after all, you will realize that you are better without them. And this doesn’t change the love that you have for them. What is good for you is not always what you want and what you want is not always good for you^^
I had to distance myself from many people in order to realign and rebalance my life. It was a painful task but I don’t regret a second because I see how beneficial it is to me. I thought that I would strongly distance myself from some of my favorite people in the world just for a little while, but it turned out that I was way better without them. And it doesn’t change an ounce the love that I have for them. I still deeply love them (or not) but from far. I want the best for them, happiness, peace, love and abundance but I do not keep them around.
I decided not to sacrifice my peace because that’s what I choose over everything. If your are more cons than pros in my life, you are out! And I strongly recommend you to do so.
Today I have a special thought for the great man that we call Babson or Baba (Ousman Sy). Legendary dancer from one of the most talented Hip Hop dance group ever: Wanted Posse. They revolutionized the dance game! Baba was one of the best dancers ever, a choreographer and an artistic director, with a worldwide reputation. The Hip Hop world is in mourning… He will be terribly missed. He is the one who invited me to NYC and showed me NYC back then. I fell in love with NYC and decided to move here thanks to him. I will be eternally grateful.
Dance In Peace Baba. You are appreciated.
Peace n kiss.
