life's "Highlight reels"

Lately, I have been getting into sports on the television. this is a new thing for me, traditionally I am not a very big sports fan. I have taken this endeavor up so I can engage in conversation at work, since sports seems to be the common choice for folks to connect. I find the best way to catch up on the sports world is to watch the highlight reels of the weeks events, who won, who lost, and so forth. You may be asking what the hell does sports have to do with cognitive behavior and personal belief structures? Especially since this blog is about the former!

Well here is the connection, at least in my mind. At the end of the day, week or month, what is on your personal highlight reel? What do you tell others about you when you run through your highlight reel? Is it all negative drama, or is it positive? When I come home, sometimes I am hit with the days highlight reel and it encapsulates every little negative thing you can imagine. Why do these things make the highlight reel? Where are the touchdowns, field goals, and incredible catches?

What is our focus of our lives? Is it all the negative crap that goes on, or is it the positive things? I can listen to highlight reels and come to a pretty good conclusion where someone's life focus is. Yes crap happens, but does it need to make my highlight reel, NO. I can choose to focus on the victories, however small they may be. What will be your choice of things to put on your highlight reel tomorrow, the choice is yours?

I like the analogy of the highlights reel - never thought of it in that way before (and I've always been a big sports fan!). You're right that we tend to dwell on our negative experiences.

This entry's a great thought at this time of year, when we tend to look back at the year - I wonder what positive events I'll put in my highlight reel for 2009?

Happy Christmas to you and your family.
