When one door closes......

Have you ever heard the phrase, "When one door closes, another one opens?" I don't mean in the literal sense, I'm talking about in relationships. I think its true. Each of us has a destiny. Things happen for a reason and in the order they are supposed to. You must have faith that whatever you need to know will be revealed to you in the right time, space, and sequence. The people that are in your life, or have been in your life, were/are there for a reason. Its to either teach you a lesson, help you to grow, or make you a better person for having known or experienced what you did with them. That's not always a good thing because we've all had our share of bad times. As you live day to day, its hard to imagine the people you are close to now not being there. This could be a romantic relationship, friendship, coworker, or parent. I try to see the good in things I have experienced and endured but its not always easy. Sometimes the message is crystal clear, other times its not. What doesnt kill you, makes you stronger even if it doesnt feel like it at the time. I think if we look at life as a journey rather than a destination, it makes the ride a little easier to take. Hard times always pass and good times don't last forever. What we go thru in our journey shapes us into the people we become. If you look at the bad things as events that needed to happen for a divine purpose, it may help you look forward to the future. There are people who take life with a grain of salt, myself, I tend to be a little more on the dramatic side. Its in my character. I think when life gets you down, you should remember that this too shall pass. Enjoy the good times and take lots of pictures, they may help you get thru the next trial you have to overcome. Words of wisdom??? Nope, just one girls take on life as we know it. If you always focus on the negative, you don't give the positive a chance to brighten your life. Am I sounding philosophical today?

I agree with this, it can be painful to face but it always brings us the best.
