2016 has already been a year full of lessons for me. I took a break from my blog while learning one of the most important ones. Many people don't know the importance of being energetically responsible. I can tell you from my own experience that it is extremely important. It is very easy to remain in a positive space when things are going well.....but what about when they are not going so well?
Recently, my husband was involved in a car accident. He is okay, but the situation was a bit discouraging for me for a few reasons. Because of the situation, and the events following the situation, I felt that I needed an escape. So what did I do? I started binge watching Pretty Little Liars on Netflix. Bad choice.
It is no exaggeration when I tell you that the show gave me trust issues, and made me feel even worse than I felt to begin with. lol. It's funny, but it isn't. If you've seen the show, then I'm sure that you will understand why.
It was only a matter of time before I was ready to trade in everything that I was passionate about, for a regular 9-5 job. It was pretty bad. It wasn't until I found myself getting upset about things that I normally would not even give a second thought, that I realized that something was wrong. I was not being energetically responsible....at all.
Before things became shaky for me, I was starting my days with meditation and inspirational videos, followed by my daily trips to the gym. When things became shaky, I completely stopped all of those things. I only did what I had to do. I was carrying negative energy to my important meetings and castings. I just could not wait to return home and get lost in Pretty Little Liars.
What we fail to realize is that energy is everything. Energy rules our universe. Where attention goes, energy flows. When you give energy to negativity, then it is inevitable that you will attract even more negativity into your world. Energy is in everything, from the things we watch, to the things that we listen to, all of the way down to the people that we choose to associate ourselves with. A simple phone call from a person has the power to turn our entire day around. This is how powerful energy is. You have the power to turn your world around by giving your energy to positive things. Once I went back to my normal daily routine, I noticed the instant change in my life. We have to take responsibility for the events that occur in our lives by only entertaining positivity. This is called being energetically responsible.
Are you energetically responsible?
