Looking on the Bright Side

The Bright Side of Life by http://marinshe.deviantart.com/
In a tough situation the old adage people give is to look on the bright side of things. Usually Christians say they draw on their faith to look on the bright side, and well I as a Pagan also draw on my faith.

I have faith in my Goddess. I believe that everything she does is for a reason. I believe that everything I go through is for a reason. I truly believe I wouldn't be the person I am today if I hadn't gone through my exact life.

So when I find myself in a situation where I can't see my way out (kind of like now) I look to why I'm here, what happened to get me here and what lesson is the Goddess trying to teach me.

Like now, I'm in this situation cause I had kids. I'm having money troubles cause I was totally unprepared to get fired while I was pregnant with AJ, nor did I expect to not be able to get and keep a job while being a single mommy. Then I wasn't quite ready to get pregnant again when I did with Ariel. Would I change a damned thing? NO! I love my kids. I never regret having them. I wouldn't even change anything about it, since to change the father or the time or anything means I would not have the AJ I have now. Ditto with Ariel.

Not to mention without AJ I would never had met Hubby. And without Ariel I wouldn't have fought so hard to keep us together. I would have probably let go cause it was too much work, now I relish the work. I love that at my worst he still tries to jump me and tells me I'm beautiful that is love.

All of this in my mind was planned by the Goddess. She decided that situation A plus crisis B equaled result C. Or something like that.
