you are not a label.

So lately, I feel like I’ve entered a new phase of my life. I don’t know what to call this other than to say I’m more attuned to people’s energy – the vibe they put out – than ever before. I pick up on this element far sooner than my other senses gather information about someone. Is this person’s energy open and receptive, or are they closed off emotionally? Is this person projecting happiness, discomfort, confusion, serenity, sadness?

These are things I notice instantly about someone. You can read it in their eyes and body language. So much is said non-verbally, but we have to pay attention and watch very carefully.

And not be distracted.

There are a million and one distractions in our world, and they’re not going away. It’s not a bad thing. It just is. What’s wonderful about being aware of someone’s energy is that it allows us to create better connections. It means we’re being present.

So what’s up with my blog title? Seeking to understand someone’s energy is how I now meet everyone in my life – family, friend, or stranger. Their energy and what they’re communicating, both verbally and non-verbally, is what I focus on.

I don’t care about what they wear, what they drive, how they fix their hair, who they love, what they eat, or any label you can think of.

I want to connect with what’s inside. Their hopes, passions, purpose, potential.

The video below (“I am not black, you are not white”) shares a lot of these thoughts in a beautiful way. Hope you enjoy it. Be kind to yourself and all those you meet. You are not a label.
