Today, distance yourself from distraction in your surroundings and focus your mind on the moments from your past.

Take a pen and paper and half an hour for yourself. Think of all of the obstacles you’ve faced in your life by now. These could be painful traumas, unlucky circumstances, hurt caused by certain people, tragic events, misfortunes, unfavorable conditions, etc.

Single out five of the biggest and most significant ones. You will probably evoke memories from times that were hard for you, and you might get emotional working on this task. This is a needed step towards your healing and necessary action that will lead to a shift in your perspective.

Once your list of five obstacles is complete, take another sheet of paper and write down all the good things these painful misfortunes brought into your life.
