Somehow my energy changes

I’ve been trying to blog as much as possible in October and today’s inspiration came from a post that read:

Share some tips for getting energized before
a big event or even a low key night out.

I already have written about finding confidence when approaching an event in the post: Either you’ll know to avoid the place or you’ll know how to handle the next situation.

Now let’s talk about energy.

I think my biggest influence about my energy when approaching a outing is who will be there. I hate to sound too picky, but when I know I have to see certain people somehow my energy changes. It’s easy when the experience gives me and up feeling, but battling a down feeling is harder. I’m sure everyone I know reading this will try to interpret who I mean by that statement, but really even just a trip to the grocery store or running an errand can be influenced by the interactions I’ll have to have during said trip.

After reading The People Factor: It’s All About Energy by Sarah Kathleen Peck, I realized just how right she was by these statements:

Understanding how people affect you means that you can do a better job matching what you need at any given moment to what your energy requires.

Cultivating relationships with people is hard work. If someone’s energy isn’t matching yours it can throw your whole game off! I hate the feeling when I know someone I don’t match with is going to be an event I’m going to. I definitely have to psyche myself up sometimes and also dial it down sometimes depending on who I might run into.

It’s not about whether or not the person is a good or bad person – it’s about whether or not they are the right energy type for you.

How do you deal with energy and interacting with people? Is it hard? Is it easy?

Our days are anything but normal as he works “construction worker hours” and I take care of our two elementary school aged kids, Chihuahua Mr Biggs, Pitbull Cali, and French Bulldog MooMoo. I blogged a few years ago under different names but have landed with the name this time around. The term 365MomMe comes from the idea that I’m a mom and I’m me 365 days a year. Kids call me Mommy but I see myself as MomMe.
