Sure, what can happen is bad, but what is now possible?
Flunked out of school?
Maybe starting work sooner is possible, or switching degrees.
Injured, or sick?
Maybe reading and learning something new is how you can spend your recovery time.
Maybe a new direction and a different focus is in the cards.
Maybe a new hobby or an old friendship will come of it.
Redemption might be looking for you.
Maybe asking “What Is Now Possible?” is the best perspective you can have.
Reminds me of the principles found in the book, The Obstacle Is The Way.
“One of the best questions you can ask when something negative happens is this: What does this experience make possible?”
