Vibes: Who’s In Your Circle?

December 7, 2016

Vibes — It’s the era we are living in. Want what is good and cut off all of the bad. Sounds like a good philosophy to me — we need supportive people around us.

 

Unfortunately, it’s quite possible that the star you thought you saw was actually an airplane. You see this aura and believe it’s filled with good and end up being misled. Sometimes, the people that shine so bright blind us from even considering the thought that they may be artificial.

Good Vibes/Bad Vibes vs Spiritual Discernment

While some see vibes, the Holy Spirit shows what’s real. When so focused on the “vibe,” one can miss obvious character flaws. Like, how “positivity” doesn’t dismiss one from being a false prophet. Let’s look deeper; it’s not time to be naive to intentions and true colors.

 

All that glitters isn’t gold, right?

 

Everyone smiling and laughing with you isn’t always genuinely cheering you on. Not every intent is good. People have their own agendas. So, who is in your circle? Who do you look up to? Social media provides many idealistic views, so we must be able to sort through the fluff and see people for who they really are.

 

Now, the only way to achieve this is through being honest with ourselves. There are times where I find myself in a situation where the only one to blame is myself. Sometimes, we sign up for the negativity that enters our lives. Whether it’s bad company or setting high expectations, the “vibes” were in the air way from the start. In the end, you play yourself.

 

When trying to develop your circle or discover people you aspire after, I’ve developed 3 sure ways to be honest with yourself:

 

Recognize false sense of security. Are they open with you? Can you trust them? Do they “expose” other people’s secrets? What flows from their heart? Who do they serve?

 

Don’t give the words of others more authority than your own. When you need advice, who do you turn to? Find confidence to make choices on your own instead of methods of your friends. They don’t have all the answers, Sway.

 

Pray for discernment. There’s more than what the eye can see. We need to look beyond the vibes and choose what light we want for ourselves.

 

Hopefully, it’s the Light.

 

If you don’t see beams of love, sincerity, respect, selflessness, encouragement, and accountability (i.e. the Fruits of the Spirit), do expect to end up with low-key haters who stifle your growth. Discern in your circle, discern out. Know, so nothing affects your glow.

  • Never feel obligated to prove yourself to anyone. When you know who you are, that is MORE than enough ❤️
  • Throwback to last summer when I traveled to DC for the national Miss Black USA pageant! So honored to be crowned @missblacknewjersey18! I created a GoFundMe campaign called, “Tarah Takes Heart” in hopes to garner support to nationals, raise #strokeawareness and empower more girls through my platform! I’m super dedicated to not only talk about the physical ailments that plague the hearts of women but to cover all of the emotional. It’s imperative to take care of the very vessel that keeps us going, ladies! Please see the link in my bio for my GoFundMe story — hope you can support! ❤️
  • You know when you wait for the right moment to share something REALLY important? I’ve been planning to make this announcement for MONTHS now 😭. Life has been such a whirlwind and we’ve been seeing more and more of just how precious time is in this world. I’m realizing that there’s no such thing as a perfect moment. YOU have to create it for yourself. I have butterflies right now and that’s really rare for me but I finally am ready to let it out. Ladies and gents, I am your MISS BLACK NEW JERSEY 2018! 😭🙌🏾✨✨✨ — 
Please read up on my story on my #GoFundMe gofundme.com/tarah-takes-heart (link in bio) and more about the platform I have chosen to dedicate my reign to: stroke. My mom suffered from one in 2013, rocking our lives forever. But most importantly, her presence in my life has been the most life changing. It is because of her that I want to give back to the stroke community and raise awareness of the issues of the heart!!! Both emotionally and physically ❤️ Ya girl needs the funds doeee so go show majorrrr love to that gofundme and share button 😂 You can also donate through PayPal (PayPal.me/tarahlynn) and Venmo (TarahSaint).
