Notes From the Furlough: Day 3

When you understand why, you can influence/choose the what and how.

Discuss please. How does this play out in life?

I’ll start us out. When something undesired—like the furlough—occurs, it can be easy to go in “why me” thoughts. It can leave me in victim stance, focused on unpleasant aspects of the current situation rather than experiencing the good of now. Taking an emotional and mental step back, I can see the present life pause for me. as it likely is for all of us, as an opportunity for reflection and rest, a call to make conscious choices. I cannot change what happened, but I can try to find the lesson and the opportunity. See Chapter 7 Let Go and Be Free in my book “The Sharing: The Owner’s Manual for Being Human.

What about you? What are you challenged to understand or accept? What lesson and opportunity doe this situation present to you?
