Being sensitive to our environment, and to other people, empathetic and empathic people feel the energy of the people around them. There are those who speak to us and we can sense the black cloud that comes with them. Others may speak, but detachment, or lack of authenticity, reaches us first.
When we spend time with genuine and sincere people, our spirits rise ~ it is a weight lifted off of us and joy and gratitude raise us up like floating balloons carrying us forward.
It is in such striking contrast to many of our daily interactions, that it cannot help but to be felt. Acknowledging that for me this week brought such a feeling of gratitude. It made me realize that it is a rare and wonderful gift to be aware of the best from those around me and how welcoming their friendship and kindness can truly be.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope that you enjoy your visit and find your moment of joy.
