If we dwell too long on “thank goodness that is over” what might we lose in the process?
Yes, it’s over. It might be something to celebrate – an accomplishment that you got through it. Or a time of loss.
But what happens when you look forward? What did you learn? What will you carry with you? And what will you change in the future, if applicable, the next time ‘something like this’ happens?
Better, I think, to continue marching forward.
