Amen to This

For the Best

Something did not turn out the way you wanted.
And maybe, it was for the best.
Disappointments and setbacks can have a way of becoming positive turning points.
When something does not work out, it makes room for other possibilities.

Be careful not to attach your sense of fulfillment too tightly to specific outcomes and circumstances. For there are far more possibilities than you have yet imagined.

Whether the last few days have seen you move forward or fall back, new doors have most certainly been opened by whatever has happened. Choose now to focus on the most promising of your current options.

Go with the assumption that whatever happens is for the best. And you'll find a way to make it so.
