“Nothing, everything, anything, something: if you have nothing, then you have everything, because you have the freedom to do anything without the fear of losing something.” – Jarod Kintz
Every loss is also something gained. Time has proven this true, again and again.
What if you’d stayed with that first crush, or got kept first job, or even kept that first haircut?
You know the one I’m talking about. Yes, that first haircut, the one featured proudly on Awkward Family Photos.
No, but seriously, take a moment to think of one big (or small) loss in your life. Now flip your perspective and think about everything that changed for the better as a result of that loss.
Yes, every loss is a loss. But it also simultaneously gains you something as well. I challenge you to look for those gains, again and again.
