SARAH (Listen to her message about Eliminating Toxic People From Your Life) this is such a timely topic as we move into the new year. This year I’ve had quite a few toxic people in my life — the term toxic sounds a bit harsh but it does get straight to the point — that I’ve had to make the difficult decision to let go. I do believe we must intentionally surround ourselves with like-minded folks.
Beginning in October every year, for the last 5 years, I normally will do something I call the RRR (Re-assess, Release, Rejuvenate) year-end exercise; one R for each month of that last quarter. It allows me the opportunity to evaluate my year and then do whatever is necessary to create my present, which will determine my future. Can’t go back — it’s already done, no use wasting time there.
In essence, I’ve found that releasing the things that are “toxic” can seem lonely (because it could mean someone or something you really love) — but darn it. . . it’s the most rejuvenating thing you will ever do. Thanks for sharing while I’m in my month of RELEASE. – This post was originally published in November 2012. I’m now REJUVENATING!
