Many Years ago, while I was going thru a personal difficulty, I used to say to myself,” I will learn something from this difficulty”. Some people used to look at me with surprise, as if wondering why I was not just falling apart. Yet, somehow I knew that something good comes out of everything that we can perceive as bad. Has it ever happened to you? You get fired? But maybe it was because there is a better opportunity waiting for you. Maybe you can find time to take a class and change professional direction. Well, what if you broke up with someone, and even when you think it is the end of the world, after sometime you realize that maybe that was not the right person for you? What I mean is, sometimes we get so caught in the moment and out of fear of change, we think we cannot overcome the difficult moment we are going thru. But perhaps with a change of perception we can view that moment as an opportunity for something better to come. Maybe the person that broke your heart, also opened the door to a new and better relationship. Maybe you can exercise self-love, and reflect that this person was not so good for you all along? Maybe being fired from your job means that you now have the gift of time to pursue a true passion. Take a moment to reflect upon a time when you thought you could not overcome a difficulty and ask yourself, was it really a blessing in disguise?
