There are times when we are so hurt that we restrict our minds ability to shift the focus to anything else but the pain. We have differing degrees of pain which require differing degrees of remedies. Some people choose to dull the pain, others run away and the rest of us face it head on. What most of us never do is search for the blessing in disguise.
Most of the time when we experience a loss, there is a blessing hidden in there somewhere; you just have to find it. Understand that the blessing may not be apparent at first and almost never is. While some people are able to move on faster than others, most of us may have to experience all of the different stages of grief before we are able to clearly see the blessing in disguise. The stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
Your ultimate goal should be to skip to the final stage of acceptance as quickly as you can. That is typically where the blessing usually presents itself. Obviously, this is not an easy task but one that is necessary if you are to move on with your life. Do not delay the inevitable simply because you may be too afraid to accept reality. Commit to memory the fact that most blessings don’t look like blessings initially, they are usually hidden until you’ve accepted the fact that life goes on and so do we.
Most of the time the blessing is right in front of you; the quickest way to find it is to look in the mirror.
