All my life, my mother told me this one Polish saying whenever something unpleasant happened: »Nie ma tego złego co by na dobre nie wyszło«. It means: There is no such bad thing that won’t turn into something good eventually.
To me this bears a simple truth: everything, is just a matter of perspective. With time comes distance, and with distance it gets easier to see the same thing from yet another angle.
This saying might be an affirmation for the blindly optimistic, but when I look back at my life, I can’t find anything bad that happened to me.
Isn’t that quite a positive forecast for what’s left to come?
