Unexpected Good Fortune

jeanfroner

Losing a job is a hard thing to come to terms with.  It can take you by complete surprise.  Sometimes though, it's the greatest of misteps on the road of life that can bring you to that new experience, or that chance to grow that you never would have had.

How true this is!!!!! The old saying of "When one door closes, another one opens" is very true however it can be unsettling in the "hallway".... It is important to keep your mind and heart open and be willing to except change... It is not easy but what an opportunity to get to know yourself and reach for happiness.

That's the beauty of life - hardships build character and inner strength, strength you never knew you had. You truly find creative ways to survive. You can clearly differentiate 'wants' from 'needs'.
