It all happens for a reason...

If I have never believed that before I am a true believer now. Who knew that signing up for the project from hell would open up the doors to friendships with wonderful people? Yes, my dear Peas, it is you that I am talking about! Or working 14 hours a day would make me realize more than ever before how lucky I am to have an amazing husband and a wonderful family.
It isn't easy dealing with failure. But now I realize that failure is only when you do not pick yourself back up when you are knocked down. And when one door closes another opens up. Every success and every failure changes us and leaves a mark on us. How we let them define us is most important. It all happens for a reason...I have to remember that, believe that and move forward.
I know I am on the right path because I am spending time with my boys and family again. And I am cooking, gardening, blogging and reading. And ofcourse keeping in touch with my friends - old and new! It all happens for a reason and for me the reason is to get me back to doing everything I enjoy and make me who I am.
It is that...believing that it all happens for a reason is going to get me through this and all curve balls life will throw at me.
Thanks to Dee, Leana, Rob and Lisa I am blogging again. I am glad to be back!

So,true! I try to teach my kids daily that things happen for a reason. In hard times they remind me and I have to practice what I preach. It's not always easy, but it always works out. I just have to remember to believe. When I used to teach, I would tell my student that there's no such thing as a mistake-they're learning experineces. If you don't learn from them, then they are opportunities lost.

Amen sister! For the people who are aware, tuned into life you can find you "a-ha" moment. The one that makes your eyes open wider and actually brings you peace in the chaos!

A friend once told me that you have 3 balls that you are juggling all the time; family, self and work. If one is too heavy you can't juggle well but you manage. If two are too heavy juggling is a chore and you don't think you can do it, you might even fail. If all three are heavy you simply give up, you feel lost and unsatisfied with everything.

I personally strive for all three but am happy with only 2 balanced balls. I am a realist at heart and know that to have it all you have to realize that you also have to change your view on what is balanced! Go figure that out!
