Monday Musings & Inspiration: How Are You Trending Now?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

Trending is defined as a general tendency of a course of events. We see it in the news, in marketing and in other venues, "what's trending now?"  In other words what is on the general mindset? And we say, "Who Cares?"

We like to think of it from a personal point of view.  What is trending with your mindset at the moment...are you trending towards negativity? or positivity?  

As human creatures we tend to observe and react to the observation, rather than take a moment of respite to analyze and ultimately ignore.  

We forget to take control of how we are trending in every moment of a day.  And we forget that we have the power to reverse ourselves to a positive trend.

"Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain... To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices - today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it."

~ Kevyn Aucoin

 

"I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet."

~ Mahatma Gandhi

I think of dirty feet as the evaluations that we let others heap on us.  And those times, when other opinions weigh more than our own.  "What you think of me, is none of my business" is our mantra.

 

"Every moment spent in negativity is paid for with something truly priceless. That something is life."

~ Ralph Marston

 

"That's my gift. I let that negativity roll off me like water off a duck's back. If it's not positive, I didn't hear it. If you can overcome that, fights are easy."

~ George Foreman

 

Wishing Everyone a Wonderful Short Week!

Enjoy Giving Thanks Every Day, and You Will be Free of Negativity, each time you focus on something beautiful or positive!

Michael Jacobs both are good quotes.  I have often been critiqued for water rolling off my back like a duck, by those who were fans of self recrimination and suffering...It is a way, but not mine.  A

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel -  Trending negative or positive is a great way to help make a shift.  I am so fortunate to have my entire back part of my home (all glass) facing east.  I get that morning sunrise. I can honestly say that I have never had negativity when watching the sunrise in the morning.  This is the way I start my day.

I needed this post, Alexandra.  I have been filling every nook and cranny of my refrigerator and pantry.  Family is coming home for Thanksgiving.  Your words are a reminder not to trend 10 pounds heavier!

Happy Monday Ron and Alexandra- I miss Kevyn Aucoin and was a huge fan of his. I absolutely love your post and your perspective on trending. We have to be aware of where our mind might be trending and understand that we have control.

Kathy,

Well said, and often we can find ourselves in the middle of nowhere caught up with something that has nothing to do with us.  I love this concept. A

Good morning R&A,
I am so blessed. My mind naturally trends positive. I find myself avoiding negative people.  I have no patience for it.

I am trending towards spending time with my family over the holidays.  Texting and other forms of communication that is not personally sitting there and having actual face to face time only goes so far. At some point, we need to stop and telling those you love that you love them, not by sending a heart emoji.

Ron & A, What a great reminder to be mindful of how you're trending. I'm thankful that I'm generally positive. When those negative moments creep in, it feels yucky. When I realize it, I do my best to get back to myself. Have a great Sunday!
