Which literally translates to, “Tell me with whom you go about, and I will tell you who you are.”
There are a myriad ways of expressing this sentiment, whether it be in Spanish or English, but we can apply the “birds of a feather flock together” lesson to see our relationships in an important way. Not only do those with whom you spend your time lend insight into your character, but it also shapes the person you are becoming. It’s a lot like “you are what you eat,” but rather, you are the energy that is around you. Being an analytical person can swing my energy into an overdrive of rationalization sometimes, so turning down the mind and letting feelings takeover is crucial to living in the moment. It’s always important to think about a situation rationally to make balanced decisions, but it is also equally important to lead with you heart and allow emotions and feelings to manifest themselves to be felt.
Since everything that lives and breathes emits energy, and energy is needed to create anything, small or large, it’s key to be aware of what kind of vibes you give off and receive. So, in surrounding oneself and emitting positive auras, it lightens up the world and kickstarts the formation of new life and possibility for creative expression. When you place yourself in uplifting company, feeling good and doing good are happily married and easy to do. The truth of the matter is that happiness is all around, you just have to open your eyes and be selectively aware of who and what you surround yourself with because it has the power to make or break you. In turn, when you’re around people who want to grow and continue to better themselves, it’s natural to want to give back the same kind of love in everything you do.
Bury yourself in a pile of dirt and you’ll be dirty. Shower yourself with sunlight and you’ll glow.
