If you think things doesn’t work out, think again. Maybe it didn’t work out with a certain person because it will work out with someone better. Maybe that job will hinder you from growing and becoming the best that you could be.

Things are meant to happen---even the things that didn’t work out are supposed to happen.   That’s a bitter pill to … [Read more...]
