Snow is a blessing if it puts you in a tranquil mood that allows you to reflect, experience joy, or be at peace.  Difficulties are blessings if they allow you to learn, grow from the experience and be better equipped for the next challenge.  People who treat you poorly are a blessing if they teach you what it feels like to be treated that way and remind you not to do that to others.  Basically, all of life’s experiences are blessings depending on what you take from them.

The next time you are faced with a challenge, a difficulty, or some other unpleasant happening in your life, take time to find the lesson, the opportunity or the silver lining.  You will be refreshed and energized instead of victimized and defeated.
