Signing in to write this post, I passed by the gloomy headline, “Disaster Inside a Disaster.”
Ugh. OK. We get it. Give us the news, please, not your negative editorial.
Here are three pairs of opposite perspectives, meant to remind us all that we can’t control what happens to us, we can only control our responses.
Top of the Mountain / Down in the Valley
Soaring / Earthbound
Blue Skies Ahead / Fog Rolling In
It’s all beautiful.
Without denying what is happening, we can label our circumstances to change our perspective. Instead of “suffering,” try “surviving.” Not “barely coping,” but “adapting.” Not “knocked down,” but “getting stronger.”
