Energy Boosters

When I go around bolstering people, I like to imagine a halo of energy around my head and shoulders and that I'm sending a stream of energy out to others. While I talk to them or listen to them, I'm 'supplying' them with energy.

But I forget sometimes that I need energy myself, especially when I'm fresh out. Today I was feeling low and depleted, especially after I left my Form 5 class. It was my first class with them after they found out that I was leaving the school and they were not happy. Then I read some posts online and remembered that the state teacher debaters were checking into PSPN today. After a few smses, I realized that they were low on motivation, thanks to some incidents. I knew I had to go to PSPN. But I badly needed backup and so I asked Henry and Eric to go along. I knew they could give a lot of input to the team members and they could also reaffirm their support of this particular team. At the same time, they could also 'support' me.

So when I went through my powerpoint slides, I just kept looking over to the two seated at the back of the room and in a funny way, felt re energized. As if those two were batteries :)

Sounds weird, doesn't it? But I'm glad they were there.

Hey, don't talk as if I'm already gone... I'm trying hard to get back to the school.

Then if I do get back, you might regret it :) If I'm no longer PK1, I'll have lots of time for English camps, competition and even English Mengiluk!!!
