Low Energy, High Presence

I’m a pretty low energy guy.

I’m not flashy, loud or animated (unless I’m projecting my voice on purpose).

But I have cultivated my presence.

I used to be a person that you could easily ignore.

It’s funny because sometimes there is a mismatch between remnants of my old beliefs and my current ability.

For example I’ll address someone. And I’ll want to repeat myself because part of me expects not to be able to grab someone’s attention instantaneously like that. But then the person will turn towards me.

Presence is once again one of those vague terms that is hard to define.

But I’ll try.

It’s the inner world of a person shining through in their body-language, eye-contact the way they speak, hold themselves and interact with other people.

It’s intense rather than flashy.
