Today we will look at #2. Adjust Your Attitude.

As a reminder:


To learn to Adjust Your Attitude, you must have taken the time to allow the grieving process to run its course. You are no longer the person you once were, your life is not what it once was. You must say goodbye and move into a period that allows you to adjust your attitude.

Adjusting your attitude can be exciting and very positive! Who is this new you as you begin a new life? What are your hobbies, interests, and goals? What are your interests within your limitations? What new things do you want to try? Go after these things and find some joy in your life!

I reached an honesty about my life, it was not the one that I had hoped for but it was still a life to be lived. I did grieve for all that was lost. Then, I realized I was getting a shot at a whole new life! A second time around. Who can say they lived two lifetimes in the one we were given? You can. I can.

I found that hobbies I had enjoyed now held a promise of future purpose. Some dreams I had were now capable of becoming reality. I was beginning to like this new, gentler me. I was gentler, yet somehow so much stronger! I realized I was actually hopeful as I started this journey with a new attitude.
