In the 1920s, Ernest Hemingway lost a suitcase containing all his manuscripts. Telling poet Ezra Pound, Pound called it a stroke of luck. Pound told him that when he rewrote the stories, he would forget the weak parts & only the best material would reappear. Instead of looking at it as a tragedy, Pound reframed it as a opportunity. Hemingway did rewrite the stories & Pound was right. What tragedy can you reframe?
