New beginnings

On Monday the 2nd of August I start a new chapter of my professional life. If you would like to know more about my new employer follow this link, the feeling I have had since the first time I walked in there is so positive and I can't wait to start. :)

This post is not so much about who I will be working for, or even about my personal situation. What it is about is how positive things can be born out of negative situations.

I bet if you think back into your past you can find an example of what I'm on about. A time when things just seemed to be going wrong, not making sense and seemingly heading nowhere but down. But then, something can happen to change everything around. This something can be large or small, ranging from a life changing gesture of a friend, getting a new job or opportunity to do something you really want to do or a smile from a friendly stranger.
The one thing that is common throughout is that the something can only be what it is because of the negative situation you were in before. Whether the something seems like a direct result of the negative or a coincidence, it can only be the positive thing it is because of what went before.

I have experienced this many times in my life, in the past I didn't see the pattern but these days I do (though when I'm down I might not always acknowledge the cycle at work) and I'm grateful for my insight.

So next time life is getting you down and bad things are the only things that keep happening remember that they will result in something better, it may take hindsight to reveal it but it will be there.

Take care & rock on!
