Bring Positive to a Negative

Have you ever had a moment when you are lost in your own frustration and fuming and something jumps right in front of you to change your course?

Last night I had an argument with a good friend. There was no yelling or harsh words but at the end I had some real hurt feelings. I have replayed the moment in my mind at different points in the day. I keep coming back to wanting to prove I was right, say how much I have been hurt, etc.

Tonight, my thoughts were stopped in their tracks. I read Day 5 in Meditations from the Mat by Rolf Gates. It said "Whenever we find ourselves ensnared in negative behavior, we should increase the amount of time, thought and energy we direct toward positive behavior." Of course. What good does it do anyone to brood and be angry?

I'm ending my day with a lighter feeling. A feeling felt when you are able to let go and move on. I choose to focus on all the positive that surrounds me. I am grateful.
