I came across this quote recently and it made me think, for every:
- missed opportunity;
- closed door;
- firm no; and
- I told you so.
There’s always been:
- something different (sometimes greater);
- someone else; or
- some surprise…
…waiting in the wings.
A wise woman I once worked with held firm her belief:
“A good no is better than a bad yes.”
I smiled when she first told me this, thinking what a quirky view to have of people. But over time, I’ve come to adopt the same opinion – it is better to know and be certain, whatever the outcome, than to rely on something or someone who may not have been meant for you in the first place.
If you’ve experienced any life hurdles lately (small or large, they can trip you up all the same), I hope this helps you accept them with ease…and leaves you ready to welcome what is coming next. 🌈
