I have a good friend whose husband left her for another woman. She was devastated because she never saw it coming. She sulked for a while. Then what did she do? She picked herself up, dusted herself off, and moved forward. And she did it with a smile. Do you know why? It’s because she saw it as an opportunity to discover who she is rather than get stuck in her misery. She read self-help books. She went sky-diving. She took trips with her friends. She spent alone time to really figure out what she wants in her next relationship. And she’s never been happier because instead of viewing her husband’s exit as a PROBLEM, she saw it as an OPPORTUNITY to become a better person and to create a more fulfilling life for herself.
I know a lot of other people in her situation as well. But most of them didn’t do what she did. They whine, complain, blame God, and just dwell on “Why oh why did this happen to ME?” And many of them are STILL dwelling upon it….years and years later. They just couldn’t see that it was really an OPPORTUNITY in disguise.
It’s all about viewpoint. I don’t care if you lost your job, have a health scare, or something else seemingly negative happened to you, there is always an opportunity for good to come out of it.
Think about your life. What are YOU viewing as a problem? How can YOU get out of that way of thinking? As the sayings go, “God never closes a door where he doesn’t open a window,” and “There’s always a silver lining somewhere.” It’s all really true. But the catch is that you have to BELIEVE it’s true. Change your thinking, change your life. Enough said :)
