I grew up hearing the phrase "What comes up must come down". Not only is this a known fact in physics, but can be applied all day, everyday in life. We feel like we are at the top for so long, living the life, everything is perfect, and then out the blue something can come and knock us off our throne and tell us "Now deal with this"! Life is full of unexpected events and surprises. Man, if I had a dime donated to me for every time life threw me a curve ball I could start a trust fund with the proceeds.
Of course it can be one of the most devastating and depressing times of your life when you work hard for something, look forward to something and bank on something to be a certain way and it just does not go so. How do you handle that? What do you do?
It is important to know that nothing is the end of the world. I don't care WHAT happens or what appears to be causing you grief. We have the power to change and make things happen the way we truly want and some time our decisions can be the ultimate reason of our demise.
Sometimes when you feel at your lowest point and you cry and you just feel like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders, just at the next moment a blessing comes through and wipes your tears away and makes everything so much better. You realize that you are not ever ever alone and that you will get what you need and what is for you in the time you can handle it.
I take so much pride in all that I have ever struggled through and gave blood sweat and tears for because it makes me so much stronger and helped me to walk around with an appreciation that you can't easily find. I am grateful for it all, and happy I am who I am. God lives through me and you too and nothing is never TOO much.
