First and foremost, I draw energy from my relationship with God. And when I neglect that relationship it shows. I become a poor reflection of His grace and love, snappish and brooding. Not a lot of fun to be around. Funny thing, it took me years to work out the correlation between my attitude and my walk with Him. I guess I'm a bit dense!
Next, I would have to say my sweet hubby gives me energy. I love my time with him, time to just be myself with no walls or restrictions on my silliness. He supports me, even when he doesn't really understand me. And that energizes me and prepares me to face a world that really has no clue what they are in for!
My furbabies. I love cats. And we have a bunch (don't judge me, we never had kids, so they are our children). I love watching them play and zip around the house. They lift my spirits and love me unconditionally (as long as there is food, water, and fresh litter). What could be more energizing?
My friends and family make the list too. The people who accept me and love me just for being me, and all the craziness that entails.
Lastly, and most surprising to me, is writing. I know, I know, I write a blog. It shouldn't surprise me to realize I like it and draw energy from it. But until last summer I had never considered writing anything more than a short post on Facebook or a note to my hubby. The idea for this blog sprang fully formed into my mind. A gift from God, I see now. A new way for me to grow. I am excited to see where it (He) takes me this year.
So, I have to ask, where do you draw your energy from?
