"Everything is going to be OK" ... ummm no, not always. There are somethings that happen to us that no matter how we spin it, no matter how hard we look for the silver lining, it just isn't going to be OK. And, that is OK.
I think nowadays we throw around these slogans and phrases like quick fixes to all our problems. "Everything happens for a reason" or "let it go" or "don't let it get you down", or my favorite piece of unsolicited advice... "don't feel that way", yet I'm pretty sure we all have been through tough times where it didn't end up "OK" and no matter how hard we tried, it just plain sucked. Instead of "turning lemons into lemonade", we simply adapted to the situation and changed. That's all. We learned to find a new way or a new path.
If you are struggling with finding the "silver lining" in whatever situation you may be in, let me just free you up ... Sometimes, it's just not there. It's normal. It's life. Nothing is wrong with you if you can't see the "forest through the trees." You're human. #itisnotalwaysOK
