Halloween is over, but vampires are everywhere. You know the kind: The energy vampires that suck the life right out of you.
Maybe you are struggling to get everything done on your to-do list. Have you taken a look at it lately? Do you really have ‘to-do’ it all?
Cross one or two things off your list without having done them. What’s the worst thing that can happen?
Perhaps you have a few relationships in your life that drain you. What can you do about them? Sometimes the best thing to do is to remove yourself from a toxic situation. Minimize contact or break free altogether from the never-to-be-pleased people in your life.
Feed your soul. Last night my son and I watched a Western on TV. It was silly and frivolous and exactly what we needed. Later we smiled in our sleep.
Walk away from the machine. I tell myself this often when I struggle with words (The woods are a great place to find them again). Do something completely unrelated to the project at hand. Distraction can open the gates to your creativity when you are focusing on something else.
Say ‘no’ more often – to others.
Say ‘yes’ more often — to yourself.
Managing your energy will actually give you more time to do what you’re really here for.
And that is to be your magificient self. Just the way you are.
Nike says ‘”Just Do It.”
I say “Just Be It.”
Do is so last century. It is time to finally Be.
