Finding the best in every situation and circumstance is not always easy. Sometimes, it is so easy you can just sit back and smile at the hard parts and say ruefully, “oh I learned from you; and learned before you got the best of me!”

Other times, you sit with your head in your hands and think, “how can any good ever come of it at all?” And in those times, I like to tell myself this… At least you tried. At least you weren’t too scared so you went out there and you tried something new or different or risked failing. So maybe it’s hard to see the good at the moment, but it’s there. Just trust that it’ll be revealed in its own time and its own way.

At the moment though, I can see the good and at the same time I’m thinking, “weellll shit. At least I tried.” And that’s enough.
