That's great Tanya, thank you. That seems to be a choice I have to continually make, each day. Now I often drift over to what is right and what is working quite a bit more readily. It seems after spending so much time in a world with our kids which puts us continually in that place of trying to avoid the consequences of their behavior, thinking of what could go wrong becomes a habit. It's that habitual thinking that I'm breaking up.
I've been burned by the "positive thinking" line - in fact, things can and do go wrong. But to focus ONLY on "what can go wrong" is... wrong. We do need to be aware of what can go wrong, though, and allow for it while we focus on what can go right.
