“I got up on the wrong side of bed today.”
“I wish I hadn’t ___________.”
“If only __________, I could be happy.”
What does each of these statements have in common?
They are gigantic negatives; that’s what!
Regret does nothing for your life. You need to turn that regret into opportunity. It’s all in how you look at things.
Don’t Get Stuck In Negative Nellie Mode
It’s so easy to get caught up in a woulda, shoulda, coulda mentality. To berate yourself and find fault with what you have, or haven’t, accomplished.
Here’s a question for you: Do you know a perfect person? Go ahead, look around. Think about it.

Now, the last thing you need is me — or anyone — jumping all over you because you’re unhappy or may be having a bad day. No one is upbeat every minute of every day.

Your day. Today.
It may be cliche, but it’s true; you do get to choose how you see things. You have more power than you think you do.
And that filter you’re looking through? It colors everything you see.
We view our daily experiences through the filter of our mental outlook — our moods, our frame of mind, our expectations.
