My lesson on loss…
I’ve lost a lot in my life…jobs, frienships, things, people and even relationships but as I look back… were they really losses?
I don’t know about you, but I have spent a lot of time, lost a lot of sleep and shed many tears bemoaning “losses” that ultimately were monumental wins to me in the long run. I have learned that when something or someone is removed from my life, it is only to be replaced by something better! It’s better because every loss makes ME better!
When put into perspective, I can see how each loss has made me better….
♠ Losing relationships have taught me lessons about intimacy, vulnerability and compromise.
♦ Losing jobs have taught me about dedication, work ethic and the importance of being in control of my own destiny.
♥ Losing a loved one in their transition of life has taught me how to cherish those who are dear to me, learn the lessons they were put in my life to teach me and to never take for granted a moment in this life.
♣ Losing friends have taught me the value of interdependence, camaraderie and acceptance without judgement.
When I count up all that I’ve gained from those losses…I have actually won! The statistics are overwhelmingly in my favor! I have learned to celebrate my losses as fervently as I celebrate my wins maybe you should too!!
In the end I STILL WIN!
Sometimes when you lose you win and when you win, you lose–Bernie Mac (My mentor, my friend and one of my Angels)
Never Dim Your Light for Others to shine…NEVER Apologize for Being YOU!!
