The other day I had lunch with a friend, and the first thing she did when I sat down was hand me two energy bites she cooked up that morning. We spent a couple hours enjoying tasty food and chatting about life, then we shopped at the co-op for fresh spices and other goodies. The perfect lunch date!
Those energy bites got me thinking. Not only were they DELICIOUS, they meant something more to me - positive energy. A couple of my goals for 2019 are to be more conscious of the energy I put into the world and spend time with those who fuel my “Energy Bus”. You must grab this book, by the way! Have you heard of the Jim Rohn study? It suggests we are the combination of the five people we spend the most time with. After reading The Energy Bus, I’ve been pondering this more and more.
Who are my five people? Well, there’s my smart a*$ husband. Guess I’ll keep him. The two incredible people I birthed. Never ever want to part with them! Although these teen years are giving me a run for my money. My mom lives just a few miles from me, and I see her a lot. She’s been with me from the start. Love you, mom! That leaves room for a friend to hop on my Energy Bus, and if she brings energy bites she is in!
Attract Positive Energy
Let me backtrack a bit. My energy has not always attracted people with positive energy. It’s actually taken me a lifetime to feel good about myself, so my Energy Bus has not always been the place to be. I was once what the book refers to as an “energy vampire”, and I was attracting energy vampires, too. This quote from the book sheds more light on that.
“The key is to feel good. When you feel good everyone around you feels good. And we’re not talking about feeling good from a double latte or candy bar kind of feeling good. We’re talking about a feeling of joy, happiness, enthusiasm, gratitude, passion, and excitement kind of feeling good. The gifts you bring to the world are not found in your resume, accomplishments, or presents to others. The gift is your presence of feeling good and being happy and bringing this to others. Being around happy and positive people makes people feel happy and positive.”
HERE’S THE KICKER.
“Too many people try to please others, and this only makes them unhappy. Better to focus on the feeling good and letting this feeling and happiness shine on others. When you feel good, you give from power. When you feel bad and try to feel good by pleasing others, you only give away your power, and this makes you weaker.”
Who knew?! In 2019 I’ll be over here working on feeling my best, and hopefully I can shine some positive energy your way, too, when I see you. If you’re working on feeling good, I’d love to have you on my Energy Bus. Check out ways to join my energy bus here.
Are ready to read more of The Energy Bus? It’s a keeper. I’m going to pass my copy on to the friend who gave me those two beautiful energy bites. Her happiness tastes delicious!
