I've been thinking lately about how much energy is given to the negative spaces. Every time I feel fear, insecurity, frustration towards a person or event, jealousy, want, and desire, I can feel so much energy literally leaving me.

What if I gently and with compassion harnessed that energy for other things - creative, life-giving things? How much energy would I have in surplus to spend on joy and building? 

Lately, as I go on walks with the pups, any time my thoughts would trail off in the way of a negative thought, I intentionally called that energy back to myself, and I visualized my spirit expanding with that energy, radiating out, over flowing into the spaces around me.
