I was going to title this post "Making a Positive out of a Negative", but I'm pretty sure I wrote a post with that title already (or something very similar to it), but that's what this post is about.
Making a negative situation into a positive one.
Although is does not always seem as though that this is possible, it most definitely is.
Yesterday morning, my favourite morning show, Canada AM, shared this video clip with all of their viewers…
How amazing is this woman? I cannot applaud her enough! What she did right there is absolutely amazing and I want everyone to see this video. She most definitely took a very negative (and personal) situation and made it into a positive one. She stood up for herself and didn't let others control how she felt about herself. She did not allow the negative comment made about her take her down.
This story reminded me of the negative situation I experienced recently. I, too, didn't let the negativity get me down and I'm sure glad I didn't! I was recently reminded how amazing blogging is and where it has led me.
I am so blessed and have been given so many opportunities due to my blog. I love blogging. I love writing. It's my passion and I'm not going anywhere <3
I want to give a special thank you to my good friend, Sam, who gave me the opportunity to be featured on my university's website and being identified as a leader. I cannot thank you enough! If you haven't read the article yet, you can read it here!
Are you able to view negatives as positives easily or does it take you quite a bit of effort?
When was the last time you were in a negative situation and made it into a positive one?
Did your news channel share the video clip shown above?
