Don't make me kick you off my energy bus!

Cause to be honest I will!  My kids always tell me my energy bus might as well be a VW Bug because at the rate I am kicking people off I won't need many seats!

While most of the time I say it tongue and cheek, in all fairness to me and my sanity it's a real threat - and while someone metaphorically being kicked off my energy bus rarely affects them it makes me feel like a whole new person!

The Energy Bus: 10 Rules to Fuel Your Life, Work, and Team with Positive Energy

I read the book a little while after my Dad died, it quite honestly had nothing to do with him but I think it was the straw that broke the camels back - I was allowing every single person that I came in contact with affect me - I was driving around a huge double decker every one had an opinion that mattered energy bus - and it was starting to mess with my head - 42 years of driving that bus was more than enough!

I won't lie-it reads a little cheesy!  When I first started reading it I felt silly BUT stick with it, it is worth it!

This book, more or less, gave me permission to decide whose opinion of me mattered!

Now don't get me wrong - I need other people, we all do, but we don't need every single person we come in contact with affecting how we see ourselves!

The Energy Bus for Kids: A Story about Staying Positive and Overcoming Challenges

I so wish I had had this book as a kid!  I would of been able to kick that big mean girl in 7th grade in the ass off my bus who didn't like any pair of shoes I wore the whole year-looking back I wish I would of had the balls to just look her in the eye and say "Really my shoes, all of my shoes, that is what you have chosen to be obsessed with?"!!!

I haven't changed the way I treat anyone but I changed the way I let what they say affect me.

A person will never know they have been kicked off my energy bus - but I know and that is truly what is important!
