When something bad happens to you, you have two choices:
1. You can wallow in self-pity and get more and more depressed and basically just lose it.
2. You can see it as an opportunity to reevaluate your life and find a way to make sure that that bad thing doesn't happen again. You can create something new.
Every cloud has a silver lining. Your job is to find that silver lining and make the most of it.
Are you up to the challenge?
