Disappointment. We’ve all been there.
Whether it was the promising new relationship, the job interview that seemed so right, the passion project that didn’t pan out, we have all known the disappointment of not having our big dream met.
Even though the feelings of loss and sadness that come with disappointment totally suck, there are actions you can take to move you back into possibility.
When this happens to me, I give myself permission to spend a few minutes to experience my sad and blue feelings. Then I will journal these feelings and really exaggerate just how bad I feel. I let my imagination run wild on the negative side just to purge it all.
Next, I take a few moments to close my eyes, drop into my heart and remind myself of all the goodness in my life as I practice breathing deeply in and out through my heart.
Finally, I get my journal out again and this time I write myself five true and positive statements about my life.
