Find the Positive
To wrap up a crazy 2020 that has provided no shortage of challenges, I invite you to review an event that caused you to suffer. 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. Be gentle with yourself as you do this, and, if necessary, be a little bit creative. If it helps, pretend the situation didn't happen to you, but to a character in a movie.
Finally, as a concluding action to 2020, maybe even on New Year's Eve, 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 undue pain.
With connection & warmth,
