I've been thinking a lot about energy lately. Positive, negative...where the heck it comes from and where it goes.
I've always been told if you exercise you'll have more energy, but I've never found it to be so. And yet, here I am walking miles and miles for work everyday and I have tons of energy when I get home to do things--like weave, go to dinner with friends, knit, create.
I also think that energy gives and takes. Positive energy gives...the more positive energy you put out the more you have to give. Like love, I guess. Maybe that's why I have so much more energy each day after work. There's just so much positive energy around me and it encourages me to expend more positive energy and then I have more positive energy to invest in doing other things.
It's pretty awesome.
Negative energy drags you down though. It drags all people who are around it down whether they're the direct target of the negative energy or not. It's hard not to dwell on the negative energy--where did it come from, why is it making me feel so bad, and how can I get it away from me.
Before long, negative energy feeds guilt, self-doubt and sadness. It breeds more negative energy because it seems to suck all the positive out of the room.
It's a strong strong person who learns to deflect that negativity or to create positivity where there doesn't seem to be any.
I've realized lately that I'm a strong person...and that's pretty damn positively awesome!
I'm also a strong person who did the "typical divorcee" thing and cut my hair off. I think it's sassy...definitely super easy AND I look really cute! :)
