"A Stroke of Good Luck"

Today I am thankful for what I don't have or have lost.. Sometimes not getting what you want is a blessing in disguise- "A stroke of good-luck". It's difficult to remember this from time to time, I mean we get so consumed in our wants that often times our desires turn into unhealthy obsessions.

Sometimes we also have to lose what we have in order to understand what we had in the first place. Everything happens for a reason- whether or not we understand what those reasons are at that point in time.

Most of the time, in times of loss we also gain much too. We gain an opportunity to obtain a higher understanding of ourselves.. as well as better possible circumstances (so long as we take effort in looking out for it). Many times, we become too consumed in our loss, or too focused on "our" plan that we forget we are never really quite the one whose in control.
