You Are What You Eat...

You Are What You Eat!!!

Every New Year, people make all kinds of New Year’s resolutions. There’s all types of resolutions, from losing weight, to getting healthier, to quitting smoking, all the way up to starting a business. New Year’s resolution usually have one thing in common, and that is to make some type of improvement of self. I’ve never been much of a resolutions type of guy, but I do believe in self-improvement and growth. Growth should be a constant journey in a person’s life, as opposed to a resolution that you make at the beginning of the year, only to quit a couple of months in.

With the turn of the New Year, it got me to thinking of the things that make us grow and things that can stunt our growth. The bookstore and internet are full of self-help literature that is designed to help folks find something in their life to improve upon. If you’re not a reader, you can always find a good podcast to listen to or a motivational show on TV or YouTube. If you need more of a personal approach, you can hire a life coach or talk to a therapist to set you on the right track. There’s tons of help all over the place if you’re interested in growth. Unfortunately, there’s plenty of things available to stunt your growth everywhere you look as well.

Have you heard the phrase “you are what you eat?” Well most of the time this phrase is referencing physical food that you eat, but I’d like to use that phrase to reference the spiritual and mental food that you consume. I always say that you have to be careful of what you consume and allow to occupy your mind. If you consume negativity and drama, you’ll be drawn to and attract negativity and drama. If all you ever think and talk about is how bad life is, that’s the energy that you’re bringing into your life. The law of attraction basically says whatever you focus your energy on will come back to you. This works with health, finances, jobs, and even your love life. I’m always hearing men and women complain about dating and how there’s nobody out there worth a damn. I get it, dating is not what it used to be, especially with the existence of social media. With that said, we have to stop letting these negative forces control our thoughts and narratives. If you only think there are no people worthy of dating out there, that’s all you’re going to see. When people send me negative YouTube videos or IG and Facebook posts, I delete that shit. To steal a line from a very good friend of mine, “my vibration is high as fuck.” That means I don’t have time or energy to deal with folks with low vibrations.

I say all that to say, be very intentional with what you feed yourself. Remember, garbage in = garbage out. Feed your physical, mental, and spiritual with the things that will spawn growth, and stay away from the stuff that stunts it.

As always,

Kings Can Move On Y’all
