Life can knock you down sometimes and usually it happens unexpectedly. Boom…something major hits and you think it’s the end of the world as you currently know it! Sometimes it can be tragic and life threatening, you’re left afraid and vulnerable. Rest assure you’ll get through it and as the recovery process and time goes on it will be a memory, chapter in your life, a learned experience that in the end made you a better person. We don’t always understand the things we go through. We question…boy do we question. Sometimes we get the answer right away and sometimes it takes a while because we can’t handle it at the time we ask. We must continue to know that our journey is a process, that keeping our eyes open and minds clear can aid in unfolding life’s wonderful mysteries. That appreciating that process gives us faith and hope in what will be. That in the end the creator has it all figured out. Don’t ponder and focus on what happens unexpectedly, you’ll survive! Take what you can from it, if you need to forgive, forgive and move on. Trust in the fact that it’s all a part of the plan for your life. There is a certain beauty in the UNEXPECTED.

Quote: “As much as you want to plan your life, it has a way of surprising you with unexpected things that will make you happier than you originally planned…that’s called Gods Will.” –Unknown

Tip: When something bad happens you have one of three choices: You can either let it define you. Let it destroy you. Or you can let it strengthen you.
