Facebook is the worst. Now, that’s true for many different reasons, but sometimes it can be good too. Like the other day, when it reminded me of a quote I posted several years ago –
“Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to the best things that will ever happen to us.” – anonymous
At the time I posted it, this quote was nothing more than a wish. I hoped with everything I had that this one big, bad thing that happened to me would somehow lead to better things. In the middle of a struggle, sometimes that’s all we have – a hope to cling to.
Sometimes bad things happen and they can be hard to get through – but they can be transformative too. They shake things up and the things that were not meant for you are shaken loose – opening you up to so much more.
Now, I wouldn’t wish my bad things on anyone, but the strange thing is that when I look back on it…I’m glad that they happened. Because if they hadn’t, so many amazing things would never have happened.
So if you’re going through bad times right now, know that sometimes change is hard. Transformative change can honestly be a bitch. But keep on pushing through. There are so many adventures yet to be had and so much beauty on the other side of struggle. You’ll get through and you’ll be stronger for it. You’ll be alright in the end, you’ll see.
