10 QUESTIONS TO LIFT YOUR SPIRITS
WHEN YOU'RE FEELING DOWN:

1. What are the chances that next year at this time, I'll feel no better?

2. What would I tell my child or my best friend if she were in my shoes?

3. What difficulty did I live through in my childhood that makes me think this problem is insurmountable?

4. Does this current challenge reveal a core weakness in me, my relationships, or my work that I am better off knowing about today when I would be five years from now?

5. When I overcome this problem, in what ways will I be stronger?

6. If I lose everything that's at stake at this moment, what do I still have of value in my life?

7. Who are the people I love most? How much time woild I dwell on my current losses if I got the news that just one of them was still very ill?

8. What do I already have in my autobiographical "bank" -- such as children I've raised, people I've helped, animals I've sheltered, or career goals I've reached -- that can never be taken away from me?

9. If I were waiting a short story or a screenplay about my life, how would I have the main character (me) turn this problem into an advantage?

10. Has this struggle taught me that someone in my life is a true friend?
