"Everything happens when it needs to happen; everyone is always where they need to be." Iyanla Vanzant
As the good book (Bible) says "there is a time and place for everything"; Embrace your situation.
We aren't always met with great things, and sometimes the things we are met with are so shitty it throws us for a loop. However finding the message in every situation is the key to unlocking the true meaning of our lives. We often ask, why me? but my question to you is; why not you?
Life isn't full of roses and quiet walks through the lush gardens, however that doesn't mean we should miss out on finding the meaning in the turbulent times. If you are in a bad place use it as a stepping stone to move to the next chapter in your life. If this is the good part take solace in the good things and use the knowledge you gain to help you through the not so good times.
Nothing is ever what it seems; what looks bad today could be a blessing tomorrow.
