What events in your past felt like curses and turned out to be blessings?  I’ll keep it simple, my Divorce!

“When you realize that the story of your life could be told a thousand different ways, that you could tell it as a tragedy, but you choose to call it an epic, that’s when you start to learn what celebration is. When what you see in front of you is so far outside of what you dreamed, but you have the belief, the boldness, the courage to call it beautiful instead of wrong, that’s celebration.” -Shauna Niequist

What about you?  What curses can you see now that turned out to be blessings?

  1. One that to many people would seem like a blessing, but for me was a curse was when I was 17 years old and my parents announced that they were moving us all to New Zealand. I cried, a lot. I hated being there for the first few months. I begged to get to go back to Canada. I was painfully shy and wasn’t brave enough to meet people.

    But over time, being there made me realize that it was an opportunity to step out of the shy shadow I had lived in for so many years and force myself to become a stronger, braver person. I was there for 7 years in the end and had SO many amazing experiences. I’m back in Canada now, but now I see that move to NZ as being the best thing I ever could have done for myself as I grew in ways I likely never would have had I stayed in the bubble I was so accustomed to. I became stronger, wiser, more experienced and less shy from those 7 years there.

    1. My family moved when I was 16, right before my junior year in high school. Just to the other side of the state…. but it was the worst ever for those couple of years. I moved back to where I grew up right after college. Happy Wednesday!
