Have you ever been really disappointed? Of course you have! Every human being has been disappointed. Didn't get the boy, the grade, the medal, the job. We in our house were certainly disappointed this weekend and experienced the whole gamut of emotions ... hope, fear, happiness, sadness, joy. It is not the end of life as we know it and we are alive and healthy. But still cannot deny the disappointment that is in our hearts. So now what? Rationalize, shrug our shoulders and say, "It didn't matter that much anyway." That would not be true. Because everything matters. Now we clean up the spilled milk and grow from our encounters with life, and turn experience into knowledge. It has been said that what doesn't kill us will make us stronger.
It seems there should be an easier way of getting strong!
