Anticipate the Good - Karen Berrios

Anticipate the Good

Hope, a positive expectation of something good coming, is all about training yourself to anticipate the good rather than worrying about the bad. Being hopeful means overcoming the negative beliefs, thoughts and reactions that have become so automatic to us. How can we do this? It’s a matter of awareness. When challenging situations arise we tend to go straight to blaming, getting angry, worrying, and assuming the worst. When this happens, this is the moment when awareness needs to kick in. Become aware of these negative thoughts and emotions. Grab them, and be very intentional about replacing them with positive thoughts and emotions that allow you to anticipate the good, and keep the bad out of your head completely.

    Thank you for sharing your story and journey with us. Growing up I was taught to always expect the worst on everything not to get disappointed. Being aware of this feeling and being able to control it will be life changing.

      Hi Lily, thank you for sharing your experience and I’m sure your caretakers meant to protect you and worked with the tools they probably learned themselves while growing up. So encouraging though to have the opportunity to break generational cycles and teach our children differently… So Exciting !! Thank you for reading my blog…Much love, joy and blessings for you and your family 🙂
