Today’s a day for reflection, looking back, seeing how things could have been different.
We’re not going to look back at something negative that happened and think, “if only that hadn’t happened”. Rather we’re going to look back at something negative that happened and think, “what could I have done to bring more positivity into that situation?”
Take a few minutes to return to a recent experience which felt negative, that had a negative impact on you.
Choose something from your recent past so you can remember as many details as possible.
Re-experience it, remember everything that happened, when it happened, how it happened, how you felt, the final outcome.
If it was a negative experience you will find, if you look for it with honesty and an open heart, some places, some times during that experience where you could have better, sooner, faster introduced a sense of gratitude, where you could have turned the negative situation around into something positive.
If you had to go through that experience again, today, how and what would you change to turn it into something more positive?
