Mid- Week Ramblings

Let’s start with positivity right out of the box. My Director of Sales pointed out, and rightly so, that most of my Facebook posts were negative. I tend to use Facebook as a tool to bash people or things that I don’t like. For example my list of dislikes include …

– The Queen

– The Monarchy

– Marc Bergevin

– The Habs

– Apple – the company

And so on. But I also have a list of likes as well …

– The Nashville Predators

– PK Subban

– Josh Flagg from Million Dollar Listing LA

– Any of the Housewives on TV

So I will pledge to be more positive on social media effective immediately.

So here’s to new beginnings as well as gratitude.

As it often happens in academia, Gratitude has a different meaning within positive psychology than what it means in everyday life.

Most of us associate gratitude with saying “thank you” to someone who has helped us or given us a gift. From a scientific perspective, gratitude is not just an action. Gratitude is a positive emotion, which is really important because it serves a purpose.

Feelings are the essence of life. They determine your past, present and future. People buy products in hopes that the product will make them feel a certain way: either happy, excited or beautiful. Or, they find the product useful in some way, even indirectly such as to support a charity or for altruistic economic reasons. Some people buy beauty products in hopes of achieving a state of happiness or a sense of self beauty or as an act or expression of beauty.

It’s rarely about logic and reason and mostly about feelings and emotions.
