Changing a Wishbone for a Backbone

When we’re stressed and worried, it’s hard to concentrate. We worry about how we can possibly manage to carry on the balancing act and wonder what our original motivation was.

Denise had an enormous tragedy in her life. She discovered that she and her daughter were both infected with the AIDS virus. Soon after, Denise’s daughter died and Denise was in deep depression. How do you recover from a terrible diagnosis and one that is often stigmatized? Denise went on a journey of discovery and through it all found reasons to be thankful for life.

She knew it was impossible to wish life was different, she had to make it different and decided to go public to educate others about children and to share what she learned about overcoming obstacles, many of which are common to everyone. She discusses ways of taking time to acknowledge a problem, judge its severity, and turn to solutions. We can all be stronger and more grounded from our adversities, no matter what they are.

Thinking in a positive way is always important – building a system for coping with difficult situations gets you even further. You will learn steps which have already proven useful and can be used at home or at work, transforming worries and wishes into workable solutions.
