Through Bad Comes Good

Life is scary and crazy sometimes.  I have had many different experiences, some good and others pretty bad.

I think it’s weird how I look at some situations.  Others would see them as devastating and horrid, but I see them as a new door that has opened to something wonderful and I had to get through the bad to get to the good.

That’s how I’m going to look at my current situation.  I needed to get through a little bit of bad, but I found something good and very unexpected.  Maybe it will work out and maybe it won’t, but that’s not going to stop me from trying.

I want to live life to the fullest and I want to be happy.  So, I’m taking these lemons that life gives me and I’m going to make myself a lemon meringue pie.

This sums up how I feel very well! Life is all what you make out of it, sometimes it's hard to handle the tough times but every experience we have helps us grow as an individual. all we can do is decide what we want to walk away from any given situation with. Like you said every situation opens a new door. and every ending is a new beginning. We all struggle, we all love and we all have lost, but what makes us unique is what we choose to make out of the situations and lessons. I love the quote from Wane Gretzky "You miss 100% of the shots you never take". So we should never be afraid of taking a chance no matter what chance that is Love, work, trusting someone new or just putting yourself out there and being yourself. Because if you never do any of those things then you will be loosing right from the start! Thanks for posting this!

I think you have a good attitude. I wouldn't say the way you look at things is weird at all. You are just looking from a different angle. No matter how awful, horrifying something is, we need a new door to open, and sometimes it's easy to forget that there are new doors! Of course we need to accept the bad, acknowledge it and push through it, and that can be a painful and tedious. I know that sometimes it seems there is nothing else, but I think that remembering there are other doors to open is a damn good start to moving forward.

Thank you, I believe we all have had bad things happen to us, but some of those bad things enabled us to get to some good things.

i like the way u put it i just hate when the bad comes and it feels like the end of the world but yet they is the good ahead u just have to wait.

I hate having to go through something bad to get to something, but sometimes that's what life throws our way. I'm just going to take it as it comes.

WOW! Thank you for the positive!!!

You are so very welcome.

Love the attitude :)

Thank you, I'm trying to be more positive about things.

have some faith ,you"ll get there :)

I always try to remember that the good wouldn't look so grand if there wasn't a fair mix of bad.
