In any given situation you have choices. You can choose to be the victim of the situation or you can choose to rise above it and make it a learning and growing experience for your self. Self pity stops you cold, so decide that your situation, whatever it may be, is your next best thing. Look for the positive aspects of it and act on them.

I challenge you to truly and objectively look at your situation. Where and what are the positive aspects of it? What, of the negative aspects can you turn into positive ones? How can you now benefit from this new view point? If you look at a seemingly “bad” situation as your “next best thing” you will find the “good” in it for you.

Just as slow motion and stop action still photography gives you an opportunity to reevaluate what you thought you saw, slowing down and honestly analyzing your situation will do the same thing for you. This reexamining what is hiding just below the surface will reveal secrets and clues within the situation that you would otherwise miss. This allows you the opportunity to see the true good in your situation, to change your perception of it and turn it to your benefit, to make it your next best thing.

So the next time you feel that your situation is beyond redemption, slow down, reexamine and search out those hidden positives and turn a negative into your next best thing and grow.

To your best outcome and highest good, Chessie
