This week’s Tuesday morning Jewish service featured a list of steps to help get us through any hard time. Although the steps contained a wide variety, there were three that stuck out to me. These steps were let go of the situation, learn from it, and lose the negative attitude.
Sometimes it’s hard for me to let go of a situation and I end up dwelling on it for hours. When I end up letting go and moving on, I feel as though a weight is lifted from the shoulders. I usually pray, meditate, help other people or move my mind to active work. As I ponder on it right this minute I realize the unnecessary amount of time I have spent dwelling on situation that I can’t change.
Whether it is positive or negative, you can acquire knowledge from any type of situation. The key to learning is being open minded and taking in account for what you did wrong. If it was a mistake you made than by learning from it, it shouldn’t happen again. I know that this has always been a problem for me; I never learned from my mistakes.
If you are closed off to the situation and have a negative attitude the situation will not get any better. Lose the negative attitude and be vulnerable to the fact that there is a whole world of things that can make a person happy.
