I don't think it's anything she necessarily said, but rather her contagious positive outlook. It's like when one person yawns and everyone else around them starts to yawn. I think it's the same when good people connect with each other...it's like a spark that causes a reaction. After I hung up the phone, I had that vibe and started working with renewed motivation.
It's interesting the effect that different people have on you. I'm sure you know of some "negative nellies" and everytime you're around them, they seem to drag you down. After being around them for a bit, you find yourself complaining, gossiping, or in a bad mood. I find it more revitalizing to be around people who are passionate and spunky about life, people who get you excited about something and make you feel like more is possible.

- Do you have enough "good energy" people in your day?
