It’s a Tweeter!
"In every trauma in our life, there is a lesson & there is a gift.” @MarikaMessager via @AddictiveDau #GetAddictedToTheGoodStuff
Steve Jobs once famously said: “You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”
When you’re going through a painful, turbulent time in life, it’s really, really hard to imagine that there could ever be any positive or purpose drawn from your suffering at some point in the future.
But, as we’ve certainly discovered ourselves, it’s often that very suffering that can lead you to your greatest happiness in life.
If you’re going through a tough time right now, please don’t miss our latest Skype Nugget – it’s pretty life-changing…
And, on that note… Addictive Daughter was not born out of butterflies & roses; we had spent years making some really unhealthy choices that caused both ourselves & others a great deal of pain.
But one day, we chose to view these past mistakes as lessons & gifts that were guiding us to where we wanted to be, rather than pointless obstacles that had no purpose.
Now, we’d really love to hear from you in the comments below: What’s one situation in your life that was painful for you at the time, but looking back with hindsight, was a blessing in disguise?
All our love, Persia & Joey xx
