I have found myself saying “I don’t have the energy” a lot just lately.
However, I have realized that I do actually have “energy” but that I have been caught in a loop of negative energy for quite a while.
I am a firm believer that “intention sets direction” (Karl Moore, The 18 Rules of Happiness) so I have decided that it is time this stopped. I intend to inject some optimism into my life – starting now.
I believe that people have and give off energy which can infect their own lives and those around them. If this energy is negative almost everybody you come into contact with will feel it. But the good news is that the same can be said for positive energy. Yay!
Maybe this helps explain why some people shine. It could be that these people are able to direct positive energy outwards to all those they come into contact with.
I have been trying to figure out what the “shiny people” I know have in common and I think it could be that they all connect with people. They make eye contact, show obvious interest in what people say to them and give “something” to the people they come into contact with.
I am a fairly introverted person but I am going to try to direct some positive energy outwards and connect with people more to break the negative cycle I have allowed myself to get into.
Love and hugs
