The Daily Love recently published a post about the Gift of Frustration. This post really resonated with me because I’m really into language and paying attention to what I say and how I say it. He talks about how we only really have control over how we view something…what meaning we attach to it, which is the same philosophy I believe in.
How often do you get frustrated by something? Have you ever seen it as a gift? I really hadn’t looked at it that way. It doesn’t sometimes motivate me to move forward or figure something out and I’ve still viewed it as a negative emotion.
So what if we changed that? What if, like the post says, we viewed frustration as a gift. What if we noticed the motivational power of this simple emotion and used it to our benefit? I’m sure going to be looking at things differently. How about you?
