Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.
Day 4’s Topic: Mentality.
I’ll be frank.
Over the years, I have brooded a lot. Whether it was thinking that life was unfair or how I needed to dwell on a particular thing for quite awhile, I sometimes find myself wanting to sulk in a corner to let the negativity run its course.
But it’s days like this where I try to remind myself I need to spend more time brewing, as in coming up with solutions, and less time brooding. After all, if you can direct your energy toward being a negative nancy, isn’t the opposite true as well?
It sounds so simple, but it goes to show how incredibly obvious it all is. If you are being pessimistic with yourself, why can’t you flip the script to become an optimist instead? Why continue to see the glass half empty if you can just see the glass half full?
Analogies aside, the point is I know my mentality is what defines how I approach a crisis. When I am in a pinch, if I don’t have the right mindset to tackle an obstacle, I can only expect disaster to head my direction.
