It REALLY does suck, so you have a right to put on that great big sour-puss. I believe in the power of positive thinking, I think the “Secret” is really great stuff. However, I think it’s totally unreasonable to expect anyone to simply “make lemonade”. We are built (quite awesomely I might add) to feel a full range of emotions… sadness and grief among them. The problem is not feeling sad it is becoming immobilized by your sadness.
Someone recently asked me “Why do crappy things happen to good people?”. First of all I think the question is incomplete. Bad things also happen to bad people. Even though it is possible to ‘attract’ certain things into our lives, many things simply happen to who ever was there. A hurricane is not selective, nor is a lightning bolt, or tsunami. Sometimes difficulty comes to us as a result of certain things we’ve done. If you don’t pay your bills you get phone calls. If you don’t respond to those phone calls they come and take your stuff…’cause and affect’. If you eat lousy food you may get fat. If you ignore your weight issue it may lead to more serious health conditions like heart disease or diabetes, ‘Cause…and…Affect’.
Now I realize that these answers to the question may not be satisfying, but the simple truth is bad things happen to everyone. A more interesting question may be “Why do tragedies happen at all?”. Or “Why does God let tragedies happen?”. I believe that the reason is this…Tragedies and all difficulties give us an opportunity. We human beings are made in God’s image. That doesn’t mean we look like him. I think it means we are mighty creators. I think it means we are powerful like God is (maybe not quite as much power). Tragedy and difficulty challenge us to use our power to improve upon our circumstance. When we overcome an obstacle or tough situation or tragedy we expand our power.
All of us know people or know of people who have prevailed over extraordinary odds. The little secret is that we all have that power. But we can only access that power with faith. Not simply being hopeful, although hope is useful. We have to KNOW that we can prevail, and when we do the universe will bend to our will. When we KNOW WE CAN the circumstance will accept that as fact and the universe will comply.
So, when life hands you a lemon, go ahead an put on the big sour-puss and then kick that difficulty’s ass.
