Correct Attitude While Out of Work — 17 Comments

  1. That is a great question! Because sometimes life is hard… I’ve surrounded myself with positive souls…it’s hard to be negative with them because it’s not allowed… taking a timeout to be upset is also good but for no more than an hour…followed by another hour undoing what you just thought …like you say the universe is listening! Prayer is what I lean heavily on. I know prayer to be extremely powerful!

  2. Well said, Janeane. As hard as it can be to create a positive outlook during down times like unemployment, it’s so important to do. I’m a big believer in the law of attraction, so when things look bleak, I make myself look for that silver lining and list what’s going well in life. It’s the only way to bring positive events back into your presence.

    • I am learning about the law of attraction. I am used to the idea of reaping what you sow. I like your idea of looking for the silver lining.

  3. I agree 100%. While I’m not about pretending that negative feelings don’t exist. We all feel Sadness, Anger, Depression, and Fear at times. It is important not to get stuck there.

    Give yourself some time to have those feelings and then say time to refocus and be joyful again.

  4. I like to remind myself that the challenging times will pass, and look for things to focus on that are going well in my life…even if it’s small. Funny thing is, bad times always seem to pass eventually!

    • On Facebook at the end of the year, there were people talking about writing down good things that happen and putting them in a jar. I didn’t have a jar so I started writing them on 3 x 5 cards and saving them in a box. It is amazing to me every time I add a new memory to see how big the pile is getting! BTW love the name of your blog and I am going over now to check it out.

  5. I like to play the “what’s the worst that can happen?” game – with the most absurd “worst” scenarios. It makes me put my problems into a little more perspective and sometimes even gives me a chuckle.
