How do you handle a disappointing resolution to a situation when you and your spouse were counting on a positive outcome?
1. Blame each other?
2. Get discouraged, angry, or moody?

Take a look at the situation together and answer the “what” and “why” questions.
1. What could we have done differently to increase the chances of a more positive outcome?
2. Why didn’t our plan work out?
Apply the knowledge from your disappointing situation to make your next challenge successful!
