Grateful for BAD!

It’s easy to be grateful when things go our way, when good things happen to good people. But what about when things go bad? How are we supposed to feel when bad things happen to good people? What happens when you are literally dying for the year to end, just so that you can press the restart button on a new year? Is it possible to be grateful for bad things, bad experiences, even for bad years? I say it’s a must.

We must find gratitude in the awful, the unforgivable, the bad luck moments, for the wrong-place-wrong-time scenarios, even in tragedy. Life is a puzzle that reveals itself slowly and only with time and wisdom do we realize that the worst things actually bring us to the best version of ourselves. It is important to know that when you are in the middle of despair you are around the corner from the very best you. “No hay mal que por bien no venga.”

Thanksgiving is just a holiday, but it’s also a good time to mark where you are now, and know that wherever you are (good or bad), is exactly where you need to be. So be grateful! As women who are becoming self-made, this is a time to open our hearts and minds to abundance, the kind that comes from changing the way you see yourself, the way you take personal responsibility for your life and financial well being. I am grateful for all of you and blessed to have met so many of you this year. What I have to offer you is my knowledge, the knowledge of my friends, and my encouragement to take action and take the opportunity (no matter where you are in your life) to grow.
