Oh so right, Buddha. As I contemplate life before my car accident and after, I realize something remarkable. Life before the accident was almost TOO good. Too easy. The accident is the universe’s reminder that bad things happen. It is a reminder that I have been through rough patches before and there is always a lesson to learn. And I always come out wiser and stronger on the other side. This time is no different. I’m healing, I’m dealing and I’m kicking ass if I do say so myself. I’m not done reflecting on all the nuances of this lesson, but I can say I am feeling very good about the future. There has been a distinct shift in my world, and all is looking up from here.
At least until the universe decides it’s time for a new lesson.
