Been thinking a lot about my attitude toward people - those I know, strangers, you name it - and being aware of my internal dialog.

It has been interesting homework. Partly, because I am becoming aware of some judgments I didn't realize were tucked inside of me, but mostly, today, I am aware of the interactions in terms of energy expenditure.

Some people just take more energy to be around than others. I don't DISLIKE them, they just require more mental umph than others. Some of those people I really LIKE. I just have to have my cup filled before I interact with them.

Others seem to give energy, and I leave an interaction feeling more alive or inspired.

And, of course some are neutral.

It's not a static classification, it fluctuates - especially with my children. Sometimes they suck me dry, other times, they fill me overflowing.

It just is what it is.

And I'm just noticing.... (again).
