In year 10 I completed a photography assignment about myself and who I am. I chose to represent myself through images of three of the closest people in my life, my best friend, my boyfriend and my soul mate.
Who you chose to associate with affects your own evolution and development. If you are surrounded by beings of light, you too are a being of light. Same goes for philosophers, philanthropists or entrepreneurs.
It is important for your own self development and spiritual awareness, to associate with evolved beings, and also to be aware of other peoples evolvement.
Reach out and connect to those on a similar path to yourself. Network for yourself, not just professionally and develop a social network of people who you admire and inspire you.
