A Blessing in Disguise?


Whenever something goes wrong in my life; which does happen occasionally despite being the "super life coach", my friends always tell me that it might be "a blessing in disguise", this has happened fairly often recently so much so that I was prompted to look up the origin of this expression. What I found was this quote by Oscar Wilde "What seems to us bitter trials are often blessings in disguise", beautifully written.

Protection from Bastet

A blessing is referring to your deity's favour and protection, so a blessing in disguise would mean that you are no longer favored or protected, at least at first glance; but perhaps some good will come out of this. It sounds pretty bad, like some sort of punishment from the almighty but you are going to be blessed in the end. How you feel about this of course really depends on how bad the "punishment" was and how quickly you can recover.

Inspirational Comment

One of my favourite expressions is; "you cannot change the past, you can only change the future". As humans we can learn from experience but we must kiss the past goodbye and move on to better things. You can definitely change your future and you can make sure that you do not make the same mistakes again; this perfect quote attributed to Albert Einstein,"Insanity: doing the same thing over again and expecting different results". It may have taken a genius to think of this but it is so true!

Keep Calm

There is hope in this message; when bad things have occurred whether or not they were punishment from on high, bad luck or a repetition of past mistakes; it's time to just learn, change and move on to a better and brighter future, enlightened by past experiences and renewed by the new challenges ahead.
