My twenty week journey back to Perfect Health "THE SUPER CHALLENGE"

Week 5 Day 5

What's going on in my head?

Perspective....I read a great article today that talks about perspective.

Basically, if you are experiencing emotional pain because of something that happened it's because you are not able to see all the good that will come out of it.

In each 'bad' experience we encounter we need to see where our focus is. If it is on the negative side or 'why did this happen' side then perhaps for things to be OK we simply need to refocus and think about all the positive possibilities that may come from this.

Some paraplegics were interviewed some time ago and revealed that one year after their life changing experience they believe that life for them is better now than it ever was...amazing attitudes.

What's happened has happened. Find a way to look forward with some positives, there always are some if you look hard enough.

No training today
nutrition as normal

SUMMARY

Look for the good in every tough situation and you will find your life will be a lot easier to deal with.

Hi Dougal,
Your blog is so on target...can you tell us of some good that you see after your last accident? For sure that you´re still alive, and your mind is surely making lemonade. Did your mother help you to be positive? You were so young then....
Just glad that you did figure this perspective deal out.

Attitude is everything. It got me thru the hard times with my kids. I kept telling them, "Don't worry, something good is right around the corner!"

Lynda, I'll write on what good has come out of my accident.

Shari, you got it...and if you say it and you believe it "it is"
