Let the bad times roll

Let the bad times roll

It's really the bad times that we need to "let roll" - settling in to the feeling that things aren't going too well and you might as well enjoy the trough before it inevitably passes and things get better. The biggest mistake we all make is to think that these "bad times" will last forever which they very rarely if ever do. And indeed how would we know how good the good times were if we didn't have bad times to compare them to?

Think back the the worst times in your life. I would bet a lot of money that it is out of each of these bad times that you have learned your biggest lessons. It is only by being stretched and thrown off balance that we really learn anything new or significant and yet we need adversity to make us take these big steps.

It is also a choice. We can choose to see every event in our lives as good or bad, we can seize the opportunity to learn or we can feel hard done by and suffer.

Shame I can't remember this all the time.....
