Over 50 years ago, I toasted to my husband ,and my family knows that with every occasion, I use the same words. I pass them on once again, and to all my new wonderful followers on Twitter. It has been a fantastic validating experience to be in a place with such diversity and kindness. “I wish you what you wish for yourself.” A dear friend of mine on Facebook responded to something I wrote. “Never let someone’s negative energy be contagious to you.” She wrote about staying away from the “energy vampires”. On Twitter, a follower said the way to keep away the “energy vampires” is with garlic and the Buddhist chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. Whatever positive emotional and physical empowerment you use is essential, and of course recognizing the person or thing…the “energy vampire” cannot survive near positive energy.
