Sometimes we get hit with setbacks, obstacles that we weren't expecting. Sometimes it's a test to see how we react. Sometimes it's there to help us grow and to see how much we can stretch ourselves to achieve something.
I know everything happens for a reason. However, sometimes the reason isn't that clear to us at first. It can become frustrating. But let us not forget that everything happens for a reason.
Trust and know that... sometimes when things happen that seem to be an obstacle in our journey or "not be in our favor", it may be making us stronger -- that it may be making us better people.
Keep your faith. Good things are coming. It'll all work out. Keep pressing on... :)
Today and always, be blessed. :)
