It is interesting how life can seem to flip in the blink of an eye. One moment things could seem dire and something can happen to turn events in your favor. There is a saying in golf:
When you are playing well it feels like you’ll never play poorly again. And when you’re playing bad, it never seems like you’ll play good again.
The truth is all things change and I think it is important to recognize that when life seems to be in a downturn those bad times will not last forever. I had a friend of mine lose his job once and he was upset, as can be expected. Over a couple of beers I tried to help him gain perspective and I remember telling him that it’s not like he’s never going to find another job. It will take time, but the bad times will end. And eventually he found a job.
The emotion of dealing with tough times makes it difficult to maintain proper perspective, but the truth is those tough times will eventually end and the sun will rise on a brand new day.
