Sometimes, there’s actually a benefit to things not working out the way we wanted.
It could be a job, an apartment, plans made or a whole other variety of things.
When we feel like we’ve lost out it’s easy for the default to be sadness and in some circumstances a gentle mourning.
But what if we could be open to something different. What if we could adopt optimism and understand that one thing not working out leaves us open to other wonderful possibilities.
I think it’s limiting to put so much pressure on one thing. And I think that some things are worth losing.
In some situations, it’s only through experiencing the loss that we realise that we wanted it for the wrong reasons and that we didn’t even truly want it to be begin with.
