Ever had a bad day, week or month? Sometimes it can feel like things can't get any worse and then wow, they do! What gets me through are two important questions, taught to me by The SUMO Guy. They are this:
On a scale of 1-10 where is it? and How Important Will This Be In 6 Months time?
At the weekend I broke my arm when my largest, youngest, daftest horse spun around and kicked me. I'm going to be in plaster (with bad hair) for the next 6 weeks. On a scale of 1-10 it feels like an 8. But then the scale is tipped when you add this: Where is it on a scale of 1-10 When Ten Equals Death. It is not a life threatening injury. I will make a full and relatively quick recovery. Now it feels more like a 4. Also when you add the second question 'How Important Will This Be In 6 Months time?' I can really start to feel my mood lift. It will be long forgotten history. I might even be able to laugh about the bad hair......
So I'm typing one handed to see if you might find these two questions helpful to you right now in whatever life is throwing at you. I hope they help.
Until next time, keep smiling....
