When she was nominated for this award she wrote about 7 Blogging Essentials for the Beautiful Blog Award.
There are actions required to take to get this award should it be bestowed on you:
1) Copy the Beautiful Blogger Award logo and place it in your post. (see it here?)
2) Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog. (Thank you again A.K.)
3) Tell us 7 things about yourself or something you know. (Be patient a bit longer!)
4) Nominate 7 other bloggers for their own Beautiful Blogger Award, and comment on their blogs to let them know. (The most fun part.)
Having just started my second blog, there are so many ideas in my head to write about, but about ME, is not on that list. Instead, here are some things I know.
7 Things I Have Learned About Personal Energy
1 – Some people have terrific energy; you love being around them. Others have energy about as attractive as a toad; you’d rather be home watching a television program rerun. Fortunately, 1) there are not many toad people that I meet (more about that in another thing) and 2) I actually enjoy some of the Twilight Zone reruns.
2 – When we respect our personal energy needs, life flows. My husband is a wide-open extrovert. As a MBTI INTJ, while my preference in behaviors are more introvert, my introvert and extrovert tendencies are somewhat balanced. This is one reason people always say to me, “You are no way an introvert.” Whichever you are, respect your energy needs.
3 – Dr Lynette Steele, a medical doctor and a specialist in energy medicine writes, “Managing personal energy can create health, wellness and balance within, but more importantly it can extend further to heal relationships through balanced and inspirational leadership.” I read somewhere that the quality of our energy, determines the quality of our life.
4 – If you know you have what some call “hot buttons”, things that trigger usually negative emotions in you, then you know, energy. There is an acquaintance I have who makes a clicking sound when in conversation. It’s about as annoying as hearing someone say, “umm,” in public speaking. Just being aware that you have them will help you determine a better reaction with them.
5 – All energy is connected. My physical energy determines my emotional energy and that affects my mental energy and also my spiritual energy. If you exercise regularly like I do, have you noticed that when you miss a day or two or …. Three, you start feeling, less like you? That’s the energy connection.
6 – All of us usually benefit from boundaries. Since we are constantly reacting to others around us, this affects our energy, often times draining us, making us feel exhausted, or like we don’t – have any energy. When you come to life from your heart, you get clearer about the boundaries you need and this self-respect pays dividends to all around you.
7 – And now about the comment I made that I don’t meet many toad like people. You know, people who you really don’t enjoy being around. Energy fuels the relationships we attract. So if you don’t act like a toad then other toads don’t come into your space. What you believe, think and act like, pulls in more of the same of other people.
