I bet if I asked you to write down five things that are wrong in your life you could do it before you had to take another breath. Sometimes we get stuck in a rut and all we can see are the things that are wrong. If we focus on those things enough they can really bring us down.
So what can we do to combat that list of things that aren’t right in our lives? Simple, write down what isn’t wrong with your life, as this article suggests. To get you thinking in a positive direction I asked our bloggers, Diane, Heather and Sarah to tell me two things that aren’t wrong in their lives. Here’s what they had to say.
- My decision to change jobs and the new position I landed.
- My cooking skills, including my recipe for the perfect morning smoothie.
- As a “student” I get special privileges: Discounts! Free 2-Day Shipping from Amazon (for a year). Access to computer programs, teachers, professionals and the career center.
- I meet amazing people all the time. Through volunteering, the internet, conferences, organizations, etc., I’ve had the opportunity to meet a wide variety of people. Now with social media (Facebook, LinkedIn) and email, it is easy to stay in touch and build a network.
- My 4-year-old son: I am so grateful to have such a sweet, loving, intelligent, inquisitive little boy. Before you become a parent, you always hear that you will feel unconditional love for your child. What I didn’t realize was how much unconditional love my son would show toward me. It makes the more difficult, demanding aspects of parenthood worth it. He enriches my life.
- Having a job after a stint of unemployment: In 2010 I was unemployed for 10 months.
If you’re so inclined, leave a comment about what isn’t wrong in your life. Things just might start looking a little sunnier.
