“Suddenly the things you see got you hurt so bad
How come the things that make us happy make us sad
Well it seems to me that
Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain. “
“Don’t it seem we go through life going up and down?
Seems the things that turn you on turn you around
Always hurting each other if it ain’t one thing it’s another
But when the world is down on you love’s somewhere around.”
“There will be sorrow but you will endure
Where there’s a flower there’s the sun and the rain
Oh and it’s wonderful there both one in the same
Joy and pain are like sunshine and rain.” – Frankie Beverly and Maze

Don’t underestimate the importance and power of what we view as our personal failures, rejections, and losses. Collectively they serve to teach us better and add lessons to our memory archives that make us better. Often times a loss a rejection, a mistake, is simply a precursor to something bigger and better.
Sip on that real slow.
