Blogging from A to Z 2022 - Energy

#AtoZChallenge 2022 Blogging from A to Z Challenge letter

Welcome to Day 5 of the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge (2022) I will be discussing topics of interest to those who identify as women this year. The Book Connection is lucky number 78 in a list of more than 140 bloggers who are participating in 2022. I encourage you to check out the list and visit other blogs with topics of interest.


There are two types of energy--positive energy and negative energy. One is productive and beneficial. The other is self-limiting and creates stress. Now, we all know stress can create nasty problems we don't want: headaches, fatigue, muscle pain, and sleep problems to name a few. 

This recent article from Verywell Mind talks about ways to create positive energy in your life. Coupled with that, you need to eliminate negative thoughts and habits. So much easier said than done, but an important piece of the puzzle. 

One negative habit I'm working on is letting go of the past. I have the memory of an elephant. I recall so many past offenses and mistakes. Remembering them, however, serves no purpose. Allowing myself to experience the freedom of forgiving others and myself will help me learn and grow as a person. 

There are other ways to bring positive energy into your life. MindValley talks about them here. One of the most inspiring places for me is the ocean, which I find hilarious since I'm afraid of water and drowning. There is something so refreshing and peaceful about walking with your feet in the soft sand or listening to the waves crash into the shore. I can't seem to find that peace anywhere else. 

What are some ways you bring positive energy into your life? Where is your favorite place for inspiration and peace?

I am glad you can relate...or maybe it's bad you can relate. Stress is so tough. I've taken to getting the occasional massage to help, but they cost a lot. Letting go of the past is tough.

I'll check out the comment settings. Thanks for the heads up.
