Ugh! I accidentally deleted a blog post I spent days preparing. I'm bummed, but life goes on. There's nothing I can do to retrieve it at this point. I could start over, but the post wouldn't be the same. Why get mad? If I do, the post won't miraculously reappear. I must move on. I've had worse things happen to me. Well, things happen for a reason.
This unfortunate circumstance leads to this post. Unfortunate circumstances do happen. We cannot always control what happens, how they happen, or when they happen, but they happen. The one thing we can control is the attitude we keep as we go through those circumstances. I like to say we should turn negatives into positives. You might be thinking that's easier said than done and that might be true in some cases. Just because it might not be so easy to do doesn't mean it isn't doable.
As for the deleted entry, it's a shame a lot of time and hard work went into something that will never be read, but maybe someone needed to read the simple message given in this post. Now, do you see how easy it is to turn a negative into a positive?
