Find the Lesson in a Difficult Situation

For this week's action, review an event in your past that caused you to suffer at the time of it. As your comfort level allows, review the event in detail, perhaps even taking time to write or talk to a trusted friend about it. 

Next, take stock of what has come since that event, specifically because of it. If you can, allow yourself to express gratitude for the event because of what has entered your life due to it.

  •   Perhaps you met someone you otherwise would not have met.
  •   Perhaps you learned how to respond better to a person or situation you found difficult. 

Please do not choose anything that causes you to get upset.

The exercise is based on the idea that we have the power to transform an event that at the time of it was challenging but because of it we gained something. Experiencing this, we may be able to apply the lesson while in the midst of a challenging situation. 

With connection & warmth,


Kind Living inspires people to both recognize
and engage in acts of ordinary kindness.
