So I imagine we have all heard people talking about how "bad" of a year 2020 is...
The other day a friend sent me a video that compiled all the horrible things that have happened this year and basically tried to say 2020 is doomed...
WHY ARE PEOPLE FOCUSING ON THIS STUFF!?
Yes, 2020 has had some really terrible things happen, but that there is no reason to be stuck focusing on the negative!
There is plenty of GREAT things that are happening every day!
The other day I made a list of all the great things that have happened to me this year...
And (not to brag) but I have still been able to experience a lot of great things in 2020! And I bet you have too!
Yes, this year has certainly gone different than expected... but I imagine if you take time to think about it, you will realize you have still gotten to learn new things, meet new people, and accomplish goals you set this year!
It makes me sad to hear people complain about 2020... and I want to encourage people to...
Start focusing on the positives of this year.
So to help, I made a PDF that I attached below that will give you some questions to help you focus on the good things that have happened this year.
I think the message we should be focusing on is NOT, the "new normal" or "2020 is doomed"... but rather,
Choose Your Attitude.
2020 has the opportunity to be just as great, if not greater, than any year in the past. Don't let all this negativity that is out in the news stop you from experiencing that.
...and start focusing on what HAS been great about this year, rather than what has not.
Good luck guys!
P.S. For all of those who have gotten sick from the COVID-19, have had loved ones suffer from it, or lost their job...I am in no way trying to downplay the seriousness of this pandemic or other tragic events that have happened this year. I feel terrible for all those who have suffered this year and am keeping them in my prayers. I am hoping exercises like this can help encourage those who have suffered to see some hope for the coming months and help them through their challenging times.
