People tend to get stuck focusing on the bad things, though. They forget the good things. That’s why what you do with that “thing” matters.
You don’t don’t always need to know why bad things happen. You do need decide what to do with them.
Will you make the things that happen crutches to lean on the rest of your life? Will you focus all of your attention on a limp, a scar, a failure, or a broken heart?
Or will you see these experiences as opportunities, ways to make the best out of bad situations—and maybe even help others in the process?
The movie Soul Surfer tells the true story of how surfer Bethany Hamilton dealt with the loss of her arm after a shark bite incident. In the movie she says, “I don’t need easy, I just need possible.”
Her return to surfing was difficult, but she made it possible. And she used it for good.
What is possible for you given your current situation? Can you see it and make it happen? Tell me in a comment below.
