Protect Your Energy November 11, 2016 – Posted in: Nicky
In my journey as a full-fledge adulting adult – who is consciously making efforts to be a better me – I learned that the world around me isn’t as “woke,” or as aware of their actions/energy as I’m trying to be.
Man, do you know how annoying it is to be in a great mood, and someone near me unknowingly projects their bad vibez onto me. Why do I have to catch your hangry ‘tude just because you haven’t had lunch? Nah, bro.
Then it dawned on me…
When you know better, you do better. No point in getting angry at someone satisfied in their old ways. They just don’t know better.

And that’s your cue to kindly step away from being drained. Emphasis on “kindly.” Protect your energy!
Pop your headphones in and listen to music, read, work-out, pray, meditate, work — whatevs — just avoid giving them the opportunity to suck the good juice from your mood-tank.
Be present in your actions. Take a beat — is it worth snapping back? Is this battle worth investing your energy?
Think about this: You’d be surprised at how loud your gentleness can be.
