Twisted around

“We will have good days and we will have bad days. And seldom will we know which is which.”

 

Truth is that there are no good times without bad times. And when we twist ourselves into pretzels to avoid bad times, we may just end up creating worse times. In fact, one of the best things that ever happened to me is when my parents allowed me to fall on my backside when I was 27. That pain kept me from making those same mistakes again.

 

When we are allowed to have bad times and allowed to fall on our backsides, it can allow us to learn, grow and have even better days ahead.

Good morning, Rocky... I like to think that all of our experiences in life, both good and bad, end up being life lessons.

Life is filled with both that is for sure and if we learn from the bad times perhaps we have more good times to look forward to in the future.

Whatever happens in our lives can serve as a lesson, should we choose to pay attention.

Rocky - a very good point for parents.  They can not be overprotective. Falling is part of learning.

Good morning Rocky. Sometimes the worst of times can be the best of times. Your perception decides which is which. Enjoy your day.

Hello Rocky, I always would tell my people you learn from your mistakes and if you never make a mistake you are not pushing yourself.

And when entities try too hard to keep us from experiencing a bad time, that can cause trouble.

Good morning Brian England I am hopeful that yesterday's lack of an extension means better times ahead

Hi Rocky- I have had days not so much where I felt twisted up but discombobulated. (I love that word.)

Rocky sometimes good times are not obvious, BUT but I do not have any problem identifying bad times when I am going through one.

By the way it takes true love to let someone you love to fall on their backside.  Not easy to sit back and let it happen.
