Influence (05/29/2020)

Sometimes we don't know how deeply impacted we are by the things around us. Seemingly innocuous things, like a television show or a song, can instantly make one's adrenaline rise or dampen one's mood. It is interesting how something that took place over such a brief period of time can make a lasting impression throughout the rest of the day, and perhaps even the rest our lives, depending on what it is and how it strikes us within that moment.

Even when we do not seek them out, these things may be a constant fixture in the background as those around us focus in on them. We cannot help but influence each other to some degree whenever we make decisions, whether we intend to or not.

In general, the things that we continually invest in through our attention and care have a tendency to shape us and those around us. And it is always a good idea to take some time to assess what exactly we are investing in and why. If we are honest with ourselves, we may be surprised.
