I am a big believer in things happening for a reason. Sometimes the reasons are revealed immediately, while sometimes it may take months of patiently waiting or years of reflecting to figure out the purpose behind a tough time. At the very least, times of adversity will always provide a lesson to be learned. However, you must be willing to reflect on your situation and figure out how you could have handled it in a different or better manner. If you walk around feeling sorry for yourself and waiting for your "luck" to change, you may be waiting for a while. Over the past month I have done my best to take the good with the bad and to keep positive. Positive thoughts breed positive results!
On to more positive things!
