There was once a time I felt very sad every time an ambulance zoomed by with sirens blazing. I knew someone was suffering, and sorrow would fill my heart not only for the injured, but also for the person’s family and friends. Nothing is permanent, and the ambulance reminds me of this fact every time I hear one.
Over lunch, I was sharing my feelings with a friend, and she changed my mindset. She mentioned, instead of feeling sad, feel happy. Be happy the ambulance is out there saving someone’s life. Feel emboldened help is on its way!
My friend was right. I chose to feel sad about an unchangeable past rather than focus on the good act of trying to make things better. It was this simple epiphany 12 years ago that changed the way I looked at everything, forever.
Rather than sulk about those personal finances on life-support, why not change the way you see your outlook? Instead, look at your massive debt, or your crummy income as an opportunity to recover. The worse you are, the more upside you have!
