Someone just reminded me that 'everything happens for a reason' today when I was lamenting on something not working as I expected it to. Everyone has something dark in their lives, everyone, and we should always try to see the bright side of the things that happen to us. We don't always look at the great things in life because the painful sides help us grow.
And when we are going THROUGH the pain, we are also healing. As we are healing, we are open to the learning process. Not running is a big part of life.
