surround yourself

by purelytwins

Hello purely fit beauties!

Happy Saturday! How’s your weekend going so far?

We shared this quote from Oprah on Facebook the other day because it really means so much to us.  Surrounding ourselves with the right kind of people. People that respect us. Love us for who we are. And most importantly lift us up.

oprah winfrey quote

Once we let go of those in our circle that didn’t support us or lift us up it felt like a whole new world opened up.

And when we did that we discovered a group that supports us and pushes us everyday to be better!  And YOU, yes you, are a BIG part of that positive group. So thank you!

It’s important to make an effort with those people who are a positive influence in your life. And, of course, it is just as important we be loving, supportive and uplifting back.

Make sure to surround yourself every day with those that believe in you.

Look around you. Are you surrounded by positivity? Are you surrounded by loved ones you make you a better person by trusting you and truly appreciating you for being purely you?

Love that quote! 

If you need someone (or if you don’t mind twins) to lift you up and support you – –> you found us!  We promise to always be here for you. Always inspiring you to love yourself and tell you that you’re worth it!

We believe in you! You can count on that! Even if you don’t see it, we do! You are special.

Most people don’t always realize how others can impact them. How others can either bring you up or bring you down. It’s important to keep in mind that the relationship you have with others can help increase your happiness.  Though, you have the final choice and outlook to decide if you are happy or not.  But your community, those that surround you, can make a difference.

Here with blogging it can be hard to always be upbeat and positive when you receive something cruel or rude, etc.  Overtime we’ve gotten better with letting those people, those comments go.  What we do now is we go read something else from a friend that will make us smile or we receive an email from someone of how much we helped change their lives that makes it all worth it. In the past we would dwell on the negativity and it kept bringing us down.  Now we continue to be inspired and uplifted through our community and family!

We make that effort to surround ourselves with people who love us, who support us and those that believe in us. And you should as well!  Make sure your environment is a positive, uplifting one.


Now for some Purely Fit Life and Purely Twins community love and inspiration in action…

You are so right – the people you surround yourself with have SUCH a big impact on your life. Choosing those who are supportive, change the way you see yourself. Such an important message!
