There are lulls, obstacles and challenges that come with day-to-day life. It’s the silent phone when you’re waiting for a call back from a potential employer/client or a person you really like. It’s the anxiety you feel when you’ve reached a dead end and don’t know what to do next. These moments can feel like torture or even failure. They can transform ordinary events into tragic ones if we let them.
You may find over time, however, that these so-called “negative” events rarely stay this way. If we let things be without judgment, they may reveal themselves to be benign. I’m surprised how often I have had to learn and relearn this simple fact. That things like a breakup, a friend fall out, or loss of a job that seemed to be bad luck at the time, eventually ended up being the best thing that could ever happen to me.
It’s never the events in our lives themselves that have the power to break us. It’s the assumptions we make that have the greatest potential to lift us up or propel us into a downward spiral. What we do with what we are given will determine how we live our lives.
This week our posts are all about helping you live a happier life by shaking up your previous beliefs on topics like passion, anxiety and acceptance, treatment for addiction and bipolar disorder and private practice marketing. It’s all about letting go of our judgments and assumptions about what we label as “negative” or “challenging” or “uncomfortable.” What seems impossible now, could be very possible with the passing of time. We just need to see them through to the end to find out.
