Even sh$t storms have gifts.

As you can imagine, I’ve spent a lot of time managing my thoughts especially during the last four months or so.  You know you can choose your thoughts, right?  There were times when my husband and I felt really bad about our situation.  However, I didn’t want it to define us.  A question I kept asking was, “What can we learn from this?” 

Now that we’re on the other side of the storm, I’ve been able to reflect back.  Even though no one wants to be in the midst of a sh$tstorm, it can provide learning opportunities and unexpected gifts.

“With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself, or treat what has happened as a gift.  Everything is either an opportunity to grow, or an obstacle to keep you from growing.  You get to choose.” -Wayne Dyer

Here’s what we learned:

  1. Nothing lasts forever.  Good or bad nothing lasts forever.  You know that saying, “This, too, shall pass.” And it did!  I’m happy to report my husband excepted a position with a good company and he is already soaring in his new role.
  1. The valleys make the peaks so much higher.  Life sure has it’s ups and downs.  A really challenging situation in life can make the not so challenging times all that much sweeter.  There is beauty in the contrast.
  1. Things taken for granted can once again be appreciated.  Doing without helped me to realize how fortunate I was in the first place.  It had been years since I went into a grocery store and even looked at prices.
  1. My husband and I are an amazing team.  We pull together.  We support each other.  We have each others back.  This is priceless.
  1. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.  We were in a situation that we were never in before.  It was uncomfortable and it forced us to learn.  We are definitely stronger in many ways.

What about you?  Have you ever had a tough situation that provided some unexpected gifts?

Unexpected gifts are sexy.
