Mostly just a thanks!

I found out some awful news about the company I work for. They are making changes and my boss will no longer be there and they will have my position as a contract. Anyway, I felt devastated yesterday because I have an amazing boss who supports my priorities as a mother and gives me good flexibility. I won’t have this when the change takes effect. I was so upset and then I remembered that the only reason I’m really upset is because of the thoughts about this.

This information has already forced me to re-address what my goals and priorities are for my work life which is such a positive. I know I will look back and realize that it was the best thing that could have happened to me and I have moments where I believe this now (mixed in with the negative thoughts). When something difficult like this happens, what is the best approach to working on the thoughts, while mourning the loss of my great work life balance?
