“Sometimes when things are falling apart,
they may actually be falling into place.”
Often life is difficult, everything seems to be wrong and bad, nothing right. We ask ourselves why is this happening to me? How could I have prevented this awful thing? There is nothing I can do! Our attitude is completely negative and we begin to feel sorry for ourselves. We look at life with the perspective of tunnel vision rather than a panoramic view. We wonder why there is no sunshine only clouds. We feel like troubles are raining down and we fear we will drown.
Perhaps we are meant to see these times not as wrong or bad but as times of change. Yes, change is often difficult and frightening. Sometimes change seems overwhelming. We may feel incompetent and inadequate, unable to meet life’s challenges. However, if we can see these troubles raining down on us not to drown us but to prepare us for the good that is to come then we can overcome the fear and move forward. Forward, out of the dark clouds and rain into the sunshine and blue skies. Forward, out of fear and doubt into contentment and peace of mind.
