I’m a sucker for these things, so I did it! If you’re interested, click through and do it yourself before I influence you with my results…

The most interesting part of the exercise for me was my bear. I saw a baby bear eating something and I just waltzed right on past it through a field of flowers. This says that given the chance to see a problem I didn’t view it as a problem. It also says that I deal with problem resolution with ease. Yay me!
I have to say that this is something that I have definitely worked on over the years and I have gotten better at.
I used to be a worrier and I took things way, way too seriously. Having made a concerted effort to be more easy going and light-hearted, I’m happy to see this reflected in my cute baby bear.
Being able to let things go and move past our problems is so important. I think that my change in attitude over the years has been key to my increased happiness.
There are so many sayings out there that reflect this message like,
Don’t sweat the small stuff and
Give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
I think that when confronted with a problem or something we don’t like we have three basic choices. Change it, change the way we look at it or avoid it. Worrying doesn’t accomplish anything worthwhile.
