// Homework Question: Positive & Negative Circumstances

Hi Brooke,

In our daily homework assignment for October, you ask to list some “positive” and “negative” circumstances from my life. I always thought circumstances are neutral so there are no positives and negatives, only what I make the circumstance mean with my thinking? Am I missing something here in the model?

Also, I understand that some times our circumstances can be the result of something we’ve created and I’m finding that is the case for many of my circumstances: I have a corporate job. I am unmarried, etc. How do we tie our results to our circumstances or vice versa if once upon a time we wanted that corporate job but may want something different now as our circumstance / result.
