Day Two of the 10 Days of Awe: The Should'ves and the Could'ves

“It is necessary ... for a man to go away by himself ... to sit on a rock ... and ask, 'Who am I, where have I been, and where am I going?”

Carl Sandburg

Day Two Question: Is there something that you wish you had done differently this past year?

Alternatively, is there something you're especially proud of from this past year?

In my counseling practice I am often encouraging others to look for the positives in their lives.  Life has enough negatives coming at us.  Baring down on  the Should’ves and the Could’ves are a certain path to a gloomy existence.  But in day two of the Days of Awe I encourage you to find a quiet moment for contemplation on this very thing.  Use that negative experience as a catalyst for change; like it’s an artifact of great interest to you-- something that you can learn from. Then end your mediation by thinking of an accomplishment that makes you feel proud.

Five minutes is all it takes.  Go!
