a positive spin...
« on: March 02, 2008, 08:32:39 pm »
Hi... did introduce myself earlier... thought this might be interesting...
we decided to move at the begining of the year, and with all the stress i ended up having to see my homeopath as i was develping and ulcer! she gave me some really good advice in terms of making the decision and how we look at it...
she said that we must look at the move as a positive step and not as a negative move. what this means is that we must rather look at what we get out of the move that is positive for us and not what is making us leave. it needs to be a desion made not out of fear or anger :tickedoff: but one that is taking a step forward. she also said that it is hard to make a new life if you view leaving as running away (although none of us like to admit it, sometimes it feels like we are). rather highlight the positive reasons and use those to explain your move as you are more likely to stick to them and not change your mind in the future.
i realise this might be a bit controversial >:D but it did help me deconstruct why we were going and all the good that would come out of our decision.. we are very excited to be moving and making a positive step in our lives...
and the good news is my ulcer has gone away :)

And remember you can go back on holiday - as a TOURIST  :clap: (with lots and lots and lots of lovely money - once the Rand gets to R10/$)
