life’s speed bumps

Life’s pathway always comes with the occasional speed bump, if not entire road blocks. Our life is often defined by how well we handle disappointment and setbacks along the way. A special person in your life dumps you. You’re turned down for a job you really want. I would tell my children as they were growing up that in every disappointment, “You don’t know what you don’t know.” Often these things happen because there is a better person, a better job in your future. Problems are never the end of the world. They’re often the beginning of a new one.
