PowerPhrase: How can we turn a devastating defeat like the Superbowl into a positive?

Manning creamed 300I can’t say I enjoyed watching the Superbowl last night. It’s painful to watch your team trampled, even if you’re not that invested. The loss was a much bigger deal for my hubby. I could tell from the low tones in his voice, it was personal for him. 

He perked up pretty quickly, but it’s still a bummer. Two things I said that helped some were:

  • ‘Tis better to have loved the Broncos and lost than never to have loved at all.


  • How can we turn this loss into a plus? How can we milk our misery in a fun and playful way?

Okay, they still lost. But we’re not taking it quite as seriously, which is a good thing. If you’re a Seahawks fan, you’re probably feeling good today. Don’t mind me. Go ahead. Enjoy your glory extracted at our expense. (Kidding. I’m playing with it – really – do enjoy it!) 

How can you play with your losses? How can you turn the agony of defeat into a blessing of sorts?
