It’s not a setback; it’s a lesson.

Right now, I’m literally sitting on the floor in my bedroom listening to Spotify, hoping at some point, I am able to escape the dreadful misery of writer’s block. So before I begin, let me apologize in advance if this post makes no sense whatsoever – I’ll try my hardest to ensure that at least a handful of you will grasp it. 

Life. Life is funny y’all. Sometimes, when you think you have it figured out, something happens that throws you all off track and the next thing you know, you’re sitting there wondering wtf happened?! “Where did I go wrong?” is typically a question we tend to present to ourselves, without actually giving more thought to what it is that occurred. 

Have you ever thought that just maybe, the rut you’ve fallen into, is a lesson? I understand there will be some people out there that want to question why one should undergo something either traumatic or just negative just to get the point? Have you ever had a wallet full of money and you just felt like you were on cloud nine and nothing could go wrong and then you lose some or all of it? Now consider those times when you’re damn near broke with only a penny in your name and you ‘luckily’ come across a few dollars-you lose your mind and swear you’re rich! 

When you lose something, you tend to value it a bit more once you regain your grounding. Have you ever thought that maybe, if something or someone is taken away from you, you’ll learn to appreciate it or them even more at a later point in life? 

I’ve grown to consider everything and everyone some form of a learning lesson for me whether it is for personal growth, relationships or even career-wise. There has to be a reason why this particular person or thing has crossed paths with me and regardless of the outcome, I should be able to take something positive from the whole situation.

The next time you go through something life-changing or even if it just throws you off guard, take a minute and think of how this situation may affect you in the future and what you can actually learn from it.
