I bet you’ve been more aware over this past week of the positive or negative quality of conversations you’ve been involved in.

I know I have. It’s been kind of fun to notice this again, and how easy it is to get “hijacked” like Sonia says.

[If you're just joining us, some of us are working Sonia Choquette's free on-line course together here, week by week. You're welcome to jump in any time!]

As the week went on, I was reminded that it’s not just conversations I’m in where the tone can be predominantly positive or negative, but lots of other venues can influence us, with or without our conscious awareness.

Ultimately, it’s up to us to maintain our own “space”. Why let filth and pollution blow in from everywhere?

Here’s just a short list of a few influences to pay attention to in this regard:

  • Conversations you overhear
    And the “vibes” of the people involved.
  • T.V.
    Especially news, but commercials are terrible at sparking fear. Lots of shows have drama galore and all kinds of “unenlightened” attitudes running amok. This can affect you whether you’re watching T.V. yourself or whether it’s just on in the background and you’re not paying attention.
  • Reading materials.
    News especially, but even certain novels can seep negativity into you. As with T.V., the ads can dig into all of your insecurities with sharp precision.
  • Songs you listen to.
    Especially “love songs” can be real bummers!
  • Internet “talk”.
    And again, ads are everywhere, reminding you of your deficiencies. Do you even notice?
  • Text messages & emails
  • The thoughts in your own head.
    These can sometimes be the scariest of all!

Do you have anything to add to this list? Did you benefit from paying attention to this idea this week, and how?

Thanks for participating!
