Because

By Dr. Debbie Engelmann

Because, if we choose to call “an issue” a challenge rather than “crisis”;
Because, we can look at hardship as an opportunity rather than an obstacle;
Because, we can ask, “what did I learn that makes me better?”;
Because, we can take a breath and do the difficult things;
Because, our courage does not depend on the weather,
the economic forecast or a whim;
Because, we choose to know the most significant
elements of life are laughter, learning, and giving our finest effort to each endeavor;
Because of these things, each morning is a pleasure and every day a success.

         
Dr. Engelmann says, “As a writer and natural intuitive healer, my purpose is to guide others on their path of finding peace within themselves through my writing and sometimes through my practice.  To help ‘wounded souls’ open their hearts and shine their unique light upon this world.”

  1. In addition to just the hopeful tone, this highlights a key idea of behavioral economics and that is the effect of framing on decision making.

  2. Lovely poem for January 😉 brain plasticity rocks! Fits well with Jordan B Peterson’s lectures, and Mel Robbins’ straight talking training that I’ve been tuning into on YouTube recently. Thanks for the succinct reminder that we have the power to chose how we show up to life X
