Plinky Prompt: What Energizes You?

  • What I Need To Live
  • What Energizes Me?
    Bowl of cherries, cloud lighting Hope energizes me. That one word popped into my head as I read the question to myself. It’s true, I need something to keep me alive, something to believe in, to give of myself. HOPE. After a grueling year I have survived stronger, wiser, a little more sure of myself yet less sensitive. I have finally made myself a priority, trying to disengage from unhealthy relationships without cutting ties completely. It was not a fun time but I limped through it, sometimes curled in the fetal position, sobbing, other times screaming out loud, angrily.
    I need hope in my life, something to look forward to, even if it is the smallest thing. Taking my puppy for a walk, doing a random act of kindness, seeing the sun after two straight weeks of rain, eating the first ripe, red cherries of summer. Little things energize me; it’s a hard world out there, we need to make our own happiness. Find a little happiness in every day, remember it.
