Good Words for a Friday in the Rain (8)

 This past 2 weeks have been a fast ride of ups and downs.  And while the ups are fun... the downs can be paralyzing.

I have learned that at times when my life seems to bring more more than I wanted, needed or understand.

My first inclination is to resist, only to later find that which is so painful, was so necessary.

Ride It Forward..

My mantra for the past 30 years has been "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade". When bad things happen, as they sometimes do, I sit myself down and try to look at the issue as a fork in the road and decide which road offers me the opportunity to grow, change or improve. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and although we may not understand the "why", eventually we'll come to see the good that came about as a result of what seemed to be 'bad' originally.

You have a way with words Craig, nice job.  I always liked, "Pain is weakness leaving the body."

Oh. I like how Jason put that...

"Pain is weakness leaving the body" ... That was a good way of putting it :)
