Hi my lotters I know I have not post a discussion here for a long time but today I feel the need to do so and I hope I get some responses. Ok here we go, a few days ago my ex phone and said he would come and visit on saturday [ I felt very uneasy about that] we are still friendly and talk on the phone quite often[ he calls me I never call him] any way here he was at the door and I greeted him nice and polite[ as I always Am]we sat down and made polite conversation, but I felt frustrated listening to his conversation which I was not interested at all I just kept saying / yes/ hum/I now what you mean, and so on.I made a cup of tea for both of us and went to my basket where I keep some unfinished embrodery form years back and settle down to my task to work on this picture [which I had started years ago] and guess what! after a while I starting feeling relaxed, I was able to listen to him,my frustration was gone and I enjoyed my needle work. At the end of the afternoon I had almost finish my picture!So at the end of the day I did turn a bad situation [ and frustraiting one ] into a positive outcome and I Am happy with that

firstly feel what is wrong in the situaton than think how you can solve them. if you not who can? this can why your situation is not very special only you can't think how to handle this. think man and have a nice day.

I believe that nothing is truly bad unless we think it's bad. We can turn a bad situation into blessing if we think positive and turn ourselves towards our Creator. When problems come banging on my door, I pray and meditate and ask God to bring some good out of any bad situation that am in. Somehow, somewhere God is able to bring the greatest good out of the greatest evil. Prayers is a powerful tool to embrace when in deep sh&t.
