The Phoenix Rising From the Ashes

I was just in Minneapolis to give a talk on gratitude and I met a young lady that said….”You know out of every bad thing that happens, there is always something good that happens as well……

After thinking about her comment, I realized that she was right, and it was like the Phoenix rising out of the ashes.

Embracing gratitude is all about focusing on what you have and in many ways counting your blessings.  By looking at a negative event as something that will deliver a positive event at some point, you are like the Phoenix that rises from the ashes.

Use gratitude and a gratitude journal to keep you looking for the positive that comes out of the negative.

It’s just like that great punch line….There must be a pony in here somewhere….
