What If the Terrible, Rotten Thing Just Isn’t?

I thought getting a divorce would be the end of the world. Instead it was the beginning of a really wonderful life.

I thought being a single parent would be a nightmare. Instead, though sometimes hard, it’s been joyful beyond measure.

I thought leaving teaching was possibly the dumbest thing I’d ever done. Instead, it was very wise.

I thought leaving my director’s position at a domestic violence shelter would be devastating. Instead, it’s been healthy–physically and mentally–and it has brought blessings to me that I could not have imagined.

What if the very thing you fear the most is not something to be feared at all? What if your better life and better self are actually on the other side of the terrible, rotten thing?

  1. What if… you’re right!
    I’m so happy for all of the positive things happening in your life and in your heart. Here’s to many, many years of wonderful friendship, rich experiences and happy days.

  2. This is exactly what I needed to read today.

  3. How true. Really needed this point of view. Lots of changes, or innovations as they like to say in my world right now.
