Unfortunate Events Might Lead to Breakthrough

When people say that things happen for a reason, there is some truth to that. Unfortunate events that might have some cringing and unhappy might lead to a wonderful breathrough of new ideas or a bursting out of one’s comfort zone. Sometimes it takes that extra jolt to snap us out of our usual course and to pay attention to where we’re going and to actually take that correct turn.

Use setbacks as a stepping stone to:
1. Brainstorm new ideas
2. Find out why it’s not working
3. Discover what the good is in this situation and what you can learn from it
4. Be thankful regardless of not knowing why and what the reason or purpose of something horrible that happened. Maybe it had to happen in order for it to trigger another event or for something else to come into your life.
5. Realize it’s not really that bad. Take a step back and take a deep breath. When it’s dark and bleak, step back and observe the entire situation objectively and try to see the good. It could be worse, be thankful it’s not.
6. If everything falls apart, what’s left? What can you salvage from it?

Resilience is key. Know that you can bounce back from lots of things.

I’ve had a lot of time to think about these things. I realized that the reason that some of the bad things happen is to clear the way for really good things to occur next. Sometimes when we wish for and want certain things we may not be allowing it in or accepting it.

I realize that I’ve been asking for certain things for a couple of years and that it was finally presented to me 1 1/2-2 years ago, pretty close to what I wanted. Maybe not 100% but at least 85-90% of what I asked for and trust me, I asked for a lot. But I turned it down and rejected it two or three times. It kept knocking at my door, but I was scared to open that door, venture out, and to take that gift. It was way out of my comfort zone. Since I had asked for so much that receiving it all would be somewhat overwhelming.

After all this time that have passed, I went and peaked through the door and thankfully my gift was still waiting for me on the other side. It could have been too late or it could have been given to someone else but it wasn’t. And this time I realized that I was ready. I was different and looking at it in a new light. It doesn’t feel overwhelming anymore and it’s ok to accept it. I’ve learned a lot in that 1 1/2-2 years and I am trying not to question something good and to always look for the catch. Maybe there is no catch.

It’s wise to remain cautious with things/events/people or new beginnings you’re not sure of, but it’s also a good idea to take a leap of faith occasionally. What have you got to lose? I asked myself that and the answer is “not much.” The worse thing that can happen is I end up exactly where I am and with more disappointment. I can deal with that. The rewards certainly outweigh the risks.

Stepping through this door will mean that I’d have a new beginning, a new life, be in a different place and have a heap of changes coming all at once. I’m prepared for the onslaught this time. In fact, my attitude this time is “bring it!” I will be glad for the new experiences.
