Every once and awhile life throws us a curveball – – usually it’s an unplanned upheaval of current plans and can cause instant panic and stress. During these times it is very hard to remain positive, never mind optimistic … BUT the good news is that most things aren’t as bad as they seem.

Read the quotes below…

“Every experience, no matter how bad it seems, holds within it a blessing of some kind. The goal is to find it.”

…we always have a choice. We can become bitter or we can choose to become bigger and better people. When we learn to recognize that every experience can bring a blessing of some kind, our upset is softened.

…When you begin to look for reasons to believe that every experience is a blessing, you will start to find those reasons.

…the wise man knows that every experience is to be viewed as a blessing.

Each of these quotes has a common theme, when things seem to be falling apart they are usually falling into place. This does not mean that we don’t undergo extreme pain, worry and heartbreak during these times but everything that happens to us is teaching us something. I know for a fact that every person we meet has a purpose (lesson or blessing) and that every good or bad experience shapes you and strengthens you into the person you are today.

If you are going through a hard time make sure to take time for yourself and be easy on yourself. It will pass and eventually everything will be okay – – find someone to talk to if you cannot handle it on your own and ask for help if you need it.

Everything will be okay!
