Choosing to Remember the Good

Choosing to Remember the Good

Play

I woke up feeling sad and didn’t even want to get out of bed.

I could tell it wasn’t going to be a good day, but it hadn’t even started. I wondered what was wrong with me, and why I felt down even before I get up.

Then I remembered, I’d had a big disagreement with my mom the day before! We’d worked everything out and apologized, but those early morning hours were filled with thoughts of negative things we had said to each other.

I knew if I was going to change the way I felt, I had to change what I remembered. Instead of remembering the argument, I chose to remember what was said in our apologies and what was felt in our hugs, before we walked away.
