We lament when life doesn’t go our way. We wish we had more control… of our lives, our circumstances, of pretty much everything.
It’s a good thing we don’t have control over every aspect of our lives. If we did, I don’t believe anyone would allow the”bad” things to happen. Given the choice between winning and losing, or succeeding or failing, I think there is little doubt what path we would choose. Every time.
The darkness helps us appreciate the light, the warmth of the day after the cold of the night. We don’t appreciate the days of calm blue skies without experiencing the the occasional storm.
