New Year, New You | Positive Vibes Starts from Within

positive vibes

Positive Vibes starts from within.

During December, many people get bit by the New Year’s bug. The epidemic has become viral. Each year, the same resolutions by the same people or more if others become influenced by it. I’m not trying to tell anybody how to live their lives, but I strongly encourage my readers to take some time to look within. If you surround yourself with more negative than positive vibes, look to see what you are doing to attract these personality types into your life. Trust me; it takes two.

None of us are perfect, but we all have the power to control how we respond to the negativity in our lives. We all have negative thoughts, and most of the time those feelings are projected in how we interact with one another.  I say all this to say, don’t just talk about it, Vanzant it and “Do the Work.” Otherwise, give your followers a break. Not all people are out to get you. With a little compassion, you will find that they are suffering just as much as you are or once was.

One of my favorite artists is Jill Scott. Scott has a way of getting to the core of her life experiences and sharing it in the rawest and purest form. She inspires me to live my truth in ways that other artist are unable to inspire me. And, I am thankful that she became famous enough to share her ideas with the world.

So, let’s go into the New Year with a positive attitude. Love our enemies as much as we love our friends because everyone has deep issues they need to deal with, including you.

Jill Scott’s advice on Keeping Positive Vibes

I Keep/Still Here, by Jill Scott (<== Click link to listen to song)

Some of them want to break you down
Steal your crown
Use and abuse you
Some of them smile in your face
Cause they’ve heard it someplace
You got more than they’re used to
Some of them want to steal your love
Oh, because they’re jealous of, of your living

I keep
Moving forward, pressing onward, striving further
I keep
Keep on laughing, keep on living, keep on loving, yeah
I keep
Keep on dreaming, keep on achieving, keep on believing
I keep
I keep smiling when I come through
And I cry when I need to

Some of them, oh, they stab you in your back
Cause it’s love they lack
Some of them won’t even try to see the good inside
Uh huh

I keep
Moving forward, pressing onward, striving further
I keep
Keep on laughing, keep on living, keep on loving, yeah
I keep
Keep on dreaming, keep on achieving, keep on believing
I keep

Hey, ooooooooooh
I keep, keep on
Keep on living, keep on learning, keep on smiling, oh yeah
I keep
Keep on laughing, keep on living, keep on loving, yeah
I keep
Keep on dreaming, keep on believing, keep on achieving
I keep
I keep smiling when I come through
And I cry when I need to
