There was a poor guy who was always working everyday. However, he couldn't pay all his debts even how much he worked. Everyday of his way to work, he always stopped by in front of a very big mansion and looked at it with hope that someday he's going to have a big house like that. What he didn't notice on his everyday stop by was a man inside the house... Looking at him quietly. One day, as he was on his way to work... Suddenly, someone from the big house hit him with a very heavy bag. Because of the impact, he fell down and had a hard time to get up because he almost injured his right ankle. When he tried to lift the bag up, it was too heavy. With much curiosity, he opened the bag and was shocked! The big and heavy bag was filled of coins! Coins that were even too much to pay off all his debts. He looked at the door of the big house with much amusement, he heard a voice from the mansion shouting: "Keep them! They're all yours!" He was hurt because of the heavy bag... Heavy bag that had a lot of coins that helped him to pay off all his debts. What a blessing in disguise! We do sometimes don't understand the reasons why the things happen but just merely focus on the question "What happened?" There are some occurences in our lives that we need to understand deeply first before realizing that they are actually blessing in disguise. How about you? Do you have something that you consider as a blessing in disguise? What is it? And why do you consider it a blessing in disguise?

Hi cyjh21! The story is quite weird in a way that he had to get hurt for being hit of the bag full of coins first before he was able to get it. I experienced blessing in disguise many times. The most recent one is my health condition. If not because of this maybe I don't have the chance to be my own boss and have full control of my time earning decent cash by working online. I can now spend quality time with my loved one. During my working days offline, I always do man's work. It's not because I want it but because of the situation at my work (Lack of male staff to do the task, etc). Most of the time I only have 2 hours to 4 hours asleep because of poor scheduling of upper management and abuse of power. Anyways, that was past and I know it happens once in a lifetime (That was a job from other country).

This is a very inspiring story that you have here. I got a lot of personal experiences which I considered as a blessing in disguise from the small up to biggest happening in my life. When I wasn't get the job that I applied for in another agency, I considered it as a blessing in disguise because I got a better job. That is where I am right now. Have a great day!

I think, I never got any blessing in disguise.

i had to pick up from my home one time and be homeless, but it turn out for the better. i was able to get the veteran affairs to help me with my financial situation and find me a home. my financial and living status would have never improved had i stay where i was at. i hated over there anyway.
