Every Story Has A Happy Ending

Every story has a happy ending. I love the idea of that, but it can also seem like that isn’t very realistic. Like we don’t just ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after, do we?

Lately though, I’m seeing that this may be true. I’m seeing that, even though things come up in my life that are difficult, like my car breaks down and there isn’t a lot of money in the bank, or COVID happens and I’m furloughed, there may be a silver lining.

When I look far enough back in my life, the things that were most difficult for me, that when I was in the middle of it I was looking for any way out, those times were some of the most life-changing, valuable and character-forming times of my life. I learned so much from them.

I have a friend who said the other day, “Pain in life is like labour pains, when you’re in the middle of it you say you’ll never do this again, and then when they put the baby in your arms it’s completely forgotten and all there is is love.”

What if the pain in life is just an experience moving through, and if we stay present to what comes next and don’t dwell on the pain and difficulty, it moves through and receive the love and blessing that the pain was birthing into our lives.

Could it be that simple?

Could it be that everything that comes into my life is beneficial?

When I look at how it works in nature it looks that way.

Could this be my nature too?
