Be the energy you want to attract. Or to say it differently: If you are in a crappy mood, the people around you won’t be in a good mood either.
Your mood physically sends out vibes that directly influence others and their behavior.
Always strive to give your loved ones the very best of yourself; not what’s left over after you have given your best to everybody else.
Cherish your loved ones
This is excellent advice for everyone, including me. Be the energy you want to attract.
Be mindful of your attitude at home, today and every day. Because it’s easy to give your best
- at work because you have to
- in class because you need good grades
- participating in school events because you don’t want to look like a bad parent
- doing voluntary work because it’s expected of you
- helping your brother move
- for the neighbors, because that’s what good neighbors do
You can fill in the blanks with whatever activity just popped into your mind.
It’s not always easy to handle all the stuff we need (or feel we need) to do, and still be a positive, kind and loving person at home.
Willpower is a finite resource
When your energy was depleted during the day by everything you had going on, it sometimes seems fair to be grumpy once that part of the day is over.
You’re exhausted, your mind’s been running wild all day, and all you want is some peace and quiet. Or you feel like complaining about your awful day.
Be the energy you want to attract.
We sometimes tend to take our loved ones for granted, even if it’s on a subconscious level. They’re not going anywhere, they love us no matter what, right?
It’s so easy to forget that they deserve the best from us.
Home should be a place where you feel supported and loved, where you can recharge your batteries.
And this is true for everyone who lives there. I see people treat their family like a nuisance, being too loud, too messy, too clumsy.
My mother never was a particularly kind person at home. But she was (and probably still is) an Intensive Care Unit nurse. I know that she saw terrible pain throughout her career.
And I sometimes wonder if her kindness and compassion got used up at work for all these poor people – and there was not much left for us. It’s more likely that she didn’t care a lot for her family.
Maybe she also didn’t care about her patients. I never saw her being empathetic ever, so it’s hard to know.
Be the energy you want to attract
It’s important to be mindful of your attitude at home. I sometimes get annoyed more easily, too. When you had a rough day, you don’t feel like handling anything else.
We simply need to make sure that this doesn’t become a habit.
Our loved ones should never be second best.
They probably had nothing to do with whatever unpleasant things you had to deal with. And even if they did, being grumpy wouldn’t be fair.
So when I heard that quote at the beginning of this post for the first time, it was eye-opening. Are you giving them your best?
I had never thought about it like this and I never made a conscious effort to be the best version of myself at home, too.
I’m usually kind, loving and patient with my kids, but there is always room for improvement.
Wouldn’t you agree? So be the energy you want to attract. Need a little more help to feel better? Check out these self-realization quotes!
Kind regards and happy quality time,
Improve yourself. Improve your life!
