Last week was not the easiest one. We’re in the middle of budgets at work and the stress of that and other things manifested physically in my life. I didn’t hit my minimum steps each day, I woke up with pounding headaches multiple days last week and I just wasn’t myself. I was actually in the middle of drafting up the outline for a different kind of podcast episode when something a friend of the show, Xav said started echoing in my head.
What if we don’t keep that same energy?
The phrase “keep that same energy” is one that’s been popular for a few years now and is usually reserved to let someone know that you’ll be reciprocating that same foul energy someone has given to you. I can’t lie, I’ve done it before. I’ve even said it before aloud and via text like:
🗣KEEP THAT SAME ENERGY
But Xav brought up a good point, what if you don’t? What if instead, you decide to give the kind of energy you want to receive? I’m diving into that and the flip side of the phrase on how to not give away all of your energy. I don’t know if y’all know this, but I’m an extroverted introvert. I am great in crowds and I’m definitely a people person, but I can’t be “on” all of the time, and it’s not uncommon for me to take a day or maybe even two after a particularly tough week to recharge. I’ll keep my phone on ‘Do Not Disturb’ and take self-care days. This episode is short and sweet, and I’d love your feedback on it. There have been a few times where I wanted to sit down in front of the mic and vent, but I’m not sure if these are the types of episodes y’all would want to listen to. So let me know if y’all don’t mind episodes like this, or even if you want more!
