This week I am giving you my mantras to get over hurt and stay positive. See yesterday's post for the story. Mantra Number Two:
Out of this experience only good will come.
It is sometimes hard to really believe this one -- what if your loved one is dying? How can good come out of this? What if you were fired from your job -- how can good come from that?
It can and it will. I believe it as sure as I am sitting here typing this post.
Tune in tomorrow for the next installment.
Funny you should use those two examples. I lost my job of 13 years just a few months before my mother succumbed to cancer. She subscribed to the same mantra as you and reminded me of it every day up to her death and i continue to remind myself. So, what good came of it? Strength, love, loyalty, and faith. I found strength in myself I never knew I possessed and was able to be there for the rest of the family. I realized just how much I am loved by my family, friends and God. The loyalty shown me by former coworkers and colleagues kept me from doubting myles and my abilities. Above all, the tragedies suffered renewed my faith in myself and God. So, you are right, even when back things happen, only good can come of it if you have courage to seek it.ReplyDelete
I am so sorry for your loss. Your words are inspiring for so many of us who may get bogged down in grief.ReplyDelete
The easiest way to see these words in action, of course, is in retrospect. I often look back on my life this way -- if this (tragedy) hadn't happened, then I never would have _____.
Every time I've been fired (as an employee or even as a friend), I know that it was God's way to force me into a change for the better.
Thanks for your words -- bless you!
