This article gave me a lot of hope:
From the unexpected fortune, which brings misfortune, which allows for a fortunate twist of events…who’s to say what’s good or bad? Only time will tell.
“We deceive ourselves if we think we have the capacity to say whether something is a success or a failure. Of course we can make a call based on the available evidence at the time, but if you take the long view, the truth can turn out to be different.
May we all be given an unexpected joy this holiday season…and may we be wise enough to welcome the joy.
