As a child, every year, we would take a trip from Toledo, OH, to Winter Haven, Fla, for church.
And every year when we returned home, my dad would say, "we had such a great time on our trip."
However, there were several times we had flat tires, a blowout on the highway, accidents, someone getting sick in the car, severe weather conditions, highway stoppages, complex highway detours, stolen vehicles, thief of personal items, food poisoning, lost luggage, lost on the highway, hotel reservations matters, and even the death of a family member.
But no matter what, when we got home, my dad would always say, "all and all, it was a good trip."
All that matters is that at the end, you realize that whatever you go through, it made the journey adventurously educational. Meaning we enjoyed and learned from it.
Whatever you are going through, realize there will be things you go through. This is there to teach and create courageous intelligence.
So that at the end, you will say, "it was a good trip."
Repeat after me:
Difficult times are part of my journey and allow me to appreciate the good.
Enjoy your trip...
