One of the most obvious laws on this planet is the passage of time in one single direction. Or at least this is how we perceive it. We may write books, make movies and fantasize about reversing time, but I have not met anyone yet who has done this, have you? So when something undesirable happens, it just cannot be undone, it is forever recorded in the archives of history which makes dwelling on it kind of pointless. It is the now and the future that we can influence, the past is only there to learn from.
Have you ever had days when all seems to be going exactly the opposite of what you have planned? When the universe seems to be having a laugh at your expense? On days like this, I remember a very simple and old Arabic saying that has echoed in my ears though out my childhood years in Lebanon: “Do not hate anything lest it is meant to be good for you”. So simple, so direct, so wise, so good to remember on such days.
All is well!
“If I had influence with the good fairy…
I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life.”
