"How Does The Energy We Carry Impact Those Around Us?"

In a world where connections are made through words and actions, there's something far more profound that lingers long after the conversation ends—the energy we carry. It's the invisible force that shapes how others perceive us and remember us.

Think about it. How often do you recall the exact words someone said or the specific actions they took? Now, compare that to how vividly you remember the way they made you feel. Positive energy has a remarkable way of etching itself into our memories, leaving an indelible mark on our hearts and minds.

Recently, I was trying to remember the name of a classmate from middle school to no avail. All I could recall was their energy and how I felt in their presence.

I couldn’t help but wonder, is that the first thing that usually comes to mind when we think about the people we meet? We think about the energy they exude more than any word or action?

The answer is yes, according to Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, a Neuroscientist. In her book “My Stroke of Insights” she recounter her experience with different caregivers entering her hospital room when she was being treated after a stroke. She could tell how each person was feeling and how it affected her.

When we enter a room or interact with someone, we bring Energy, positive or negative.

When we enter a room, we can lift up the air, or we can bring it down. The choice is always ours.

The Energy We Carry

In our busy lives, filled with meetings, networking events, and social gatherings, it's easy to get caught up in the rush and overlook the significance of the energy we emit. But it's in these moments of connection that the true impact of positive energy becomes apparent.

When we approach interactions with genuine warmth, kindness, and enthusiasm, we not only uplift ourselves but also those around us. A smile, a word of encouragement, or a listening ear can brighten someone's day, inspire them to reach for their goals, or simply make them feel seen and valued.

There was once a young lady who started working on my team. I made it a point to smile at her every morning and during every interaction we had, trying to make her feel welcomed and comfortable. One day, she confessed to me that she had been struggling mentally because she was away from her family and being on her own proved to be more challenging than she anticipated. She said my kindness helped her get through it.

Positive Energy is Contagious

Positive energy is contagious. It has the power to ripple outward, touching the lives of everyone we encounter. And just as we can be uplifted by the positive energy of others, we have the ability to spread that positivity wherever we go.

So, let's make a conscious effort to cultivate positive energy in our lives. Let's choose to focus on the good, practice gratitude, and approach each interaction with kindness and empathy. Because in the grand scheme of things, it's not the words we speak or the actions we take that leave the most profound impression—it's the energy we carry.

Remember, it's not what we say or do that people will remember most—it's how we make them feel. And with positive energy, we have the power to leave a lasting impression that transcends time and space.

Maya Angelou once said: "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Until next time, be kind to yourself and others, and take care.
