~ Just Another Day | Jon Secada ~
Trouble creates a capacity to handle it,
meet it as a friend,
for you'll see a lot of it and had
better be on speaking terms with it.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
We don't always see the opportunity for personal growth when life's troubles appear and seem to produce anything but stress and negativity.
Today I'm grateful to feel grief and loss on the anniversary of my husband's death, otherwise I would have never had the pleasure of his company in my life. Rather than continuing to feel negative, I'm choosing to ponder my personal growth since he's been gone . . . and realize that I have so much personal progress to be grateful for . . . as well as having the rest of my life to look forward to.
No one dies for anyone . . . life goes on.
Today is the first day
of the rest of my life
