Making a Negative a Positive

April 29, 2013

I definitely don’t know the meaning of life. But, what I do know is that we all have challenges to face. Some are pretty intense on that spectrum, and some are just normal daily things everyone has to deal with. Given that everyone faces challenges, why do some people rise to the top and others crumble under that type of stress & pressure? I assume there are many reasons that explain this concept. What I do feel is that our happiness can depend on how we address those “bumps” in our life. I know that some of the biggest challenges I’ve faced are things I have purposely flip-flopped in my life – taking those negative things & turning them into positive opportunities is one way to look at that problem. Granted… it takes time, it’s not a quick-fix, and you have to be willing to grow.

If you have taken a negative experience in your life and used it to your advantage to grow, maybe even help others, and improve your happiness with life please share your experience with us. We’d love to hear about it!
