Tripping out!

In a conversation I overheard, an older woman telling her daughter, “I’m going on my last big trip.” “Oh, you’ve been saying that for 10 years now – and look how many big trips you’ve taken!” her daughter said.

The older woman added an unnecessary element of sadness and finality that diminished the joys of anticipation that she could have been experiencing instead. She Redded on herself a bit. What if she changed just one word in her statement?

“I’m going on my last big trip.”
“I’m going on my next big trip.”

She could have Greened her viewpoint – and added to her own delight, as well as that of the other person.

In the next few days, keep your ears open for any similar thinking – opportunities to Green up your NEXT thought – and viewpoint.
