Daily Journey – November 22nd: The Glass is Already Broken
Our reactions to disappointing and even tragic events can be tempered by accepting they could happen when they are still only a possibility.
Thinking about how things may not go our way tempers our reaction and gives us the chance to think through some of the “what if” scenarios.
It also can help us accept the outcome and get a head start on recovering and moving on.
I am not saying we have to like it when we get bad or tragic results, but we will have to recover and move on. A little bit of mental preparation can go a long way in helping “accept it, live with it, and get on with our lives.”
