A few days ago we had a little traumatic experience in our household. Brady ran away from the dog walker and was missing for a few hours. When the dog walker called to tell me the situation my mind immediately went to the “bad place.” My first thought was that he was going to get hit by a car. Fortunately the night ended with Jeff finding Brady walking around our usual walk.
The next day my boss gave me a lecture that I need to be more careful about what I put out into the universe. She said no matter what I should always think the best outcome rather then the worst.
Have you ever noticed that when bad things happen to people (myself included) they often say things like “that’s just my luck.” Well obviously that’s your luck because you never thought otherwise, from the beginning you expected the worst to happen.
I have decided to challenge myself to always think the best possible out come. I know it’s easier said then done so I really need to work on it. But I think it is important to always have a positive outlook rather then a negative one.
Do you automatically think the worst?
Will you join me in challenging yourself to think more positively?
