We may not know it at the time but sometimes things are a blessing in disguise. We think we know someone or a situation and when the worst happens it you begin to realize that maybe it was a blessing. Sometimes life takes us a different path and we need to learn from our past to better our future. Everything happens for a reason. I am a firm believer in that. As long as we have God, our family and a few close friends I think life is good. Not every job or move or friendship is going to work sometimes we go hit some bumps in the road and that is okay. As long as we do not repeat the same mistakes and we learn we are going to move forward and count our blessings. God has a plan for all of us. If we pray and believe and we are strong we can get through anything. Life is good and prayer and peace are good for the soul.

I remember I had this job a very long time ago and I think I knew it my heart it was not meant to be. I had hardly any training and it did not work out. I was so upset because I wanted it to work but something MUCH better came along and that job was in the rearview mirror. That was a perfect example of a blessing in disguise. Sometimes things do not work out and that is because they are not meant to be. When one door closes another one opens. It is all part of the plan. Hang in there and have faith. Surround yourself with positive people. People that root for YOU! Now onto the next life lesson.
