Moods, Feelings, Thermometers and Thermostats

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Real Living Sugar Pine Realty



What "mood" are you in right now? (Be honest.)

Dictionary.com defines mood as: "a state or quality of feeling at a particular time."

And so moods have a lot to do with feelings. (The argument could be made that moods have everything to do with feelings.)

And at any given time we can feel one way or another. Right?

We can feel happy or we can feel sad. We can feel silly or we can feel serious. We can feel hopeful or we can feel not so hopeful. We can feel secure or we can feel insecure.

It could be just about any type of feeling that we're having at any given time and depending on the circumstances we find ourselves in. (It's true.)

And some people respond to their circumstances like a thermometer. When their circumstances heat up, so do they. Their (personal) temperature rises (figuratively speaking).

Circumstances ARE in control of the "thermometer" person.

And then there are those people who respond to their circumstances like a thermostat. When their circumstances heat up, they are steady. Their (personal) temperature stays cool.

Circumstances ARE NOT in control of the "thermostat" person.

So which one are you?

(There are some people that find their identity/security in being a "thermometer" rather than a "thermostat." Time for a change?)
