Everything Adds Up in the Future-
When bad situations arise, we know they are the test we have to get through to attaining our goals. Remember they happen for a reason as do all things. One bad situation could lead you to meeting your best friend, or helped you make a right decision, or opened up new possibilities for your life. Hindsight is 20/20 looking back at bad times we can clearly see they added something good to your life, in the long run, whether it be a lesson learned or an new career. My favorite Alice in Wonderland (I’m obsessed) quote is “The rule is, jam tomorrow, and jam yesterday but never jam today.” But what does that mean? Alice in Wonderland is all non-sense right? Well to my understanding this mean that you shouldn’t dwell on bad moments because you can’t see how they will add up in the future, during the present. Just focus on moving past them rather than convincing yourself it’s ruining your life. Most of the time many experiences are less than pleasant in the moment, but looking back can be quite wonderful. A simple example– as a child I would scrape my knees and get cuts on my arms from falling down, and in the moment when those things happened I would cry and be in terrible pain. Now looking back my childhood was filled with adventure and I was always having a good time. Looking at the bigger picture can really clear a mind of negative thoughts.
1) As always this is all inspired by Mod Sun’s book “Did I Ever Wake Up?”
2) I have a legit obsession with Alice in Wonderland hence why I reference a quote here
3)I’m missing Mod Sun’s concert in Boston, MA tonight and it’s so sad! But I know things happen for a reason
