There Are No AcciDents, Even When You Fail.
It's hard to believe there are blessing to be found in every nightmare while you're currently living in the thick of it. Reality is- with time comes wisdom and you realize there are no accidents/mistakes in life. Sure, you may make some bad decisions- I've made a few too many... But there's always a lesson learned, always a bigger picture- a greater purpose. The sweetest detours lead to some of the best things!
I was 17, about to graduate high school and as luck would have it- my teacher for a required class I started in my LAST semester was a nightmare. I've always been up for a challenge, an A-B (an occasional C) student- a good kid. Lord, she hated me. Me! (I'm a likeable person!) Any way- she was determined to fail me. I worked full time then, I was exhausted, and I didn't have any fight in me. She even embarrassed me in the class by yelling tauntingly, "How do you even plan to pass my class?! You're gonna write me an essay on how you plan to do so."....So I did. I wrote the shortest essay of my life, two words. "Summer. School." I never showed up again to her class. I was heart broken... never quit anything. I just knew in my heart she was not a good person and couldn't bear being around her & that negativity. I was not going to let her discourage me or get in the way of my dreams... which surprisingly had nothing to do with graduating with my class.
I graduated summer school with a 100.0 GPA in the same class with a different teacher who wondered what the hell I was doing in her class. At the time I didn't know why I had been dealt the crappiest cards. I hated being in that situation. I never imagined not walking with my class. I look back now and smile, forgiving that old witch completely.
In summer school I met my best friend. Next June will be our 20th year being friends. Of course when we first met we HATED eachother. LOL She was this little snobby smarty pants that knew it all and I was her sweet competition giving her dirty looks all day. We motivated each other with some friendly competition and coming from different high schools we would have never met had life not thrown us that unexpected curve ball. I can't imagine my life without her. She's been a constant blessing so much in my life I couldn't imagine where I'd be without her. Now I work in a big corporate office for Executives (exactly doing what I went to college for to the T) and she's a hot-shot nurse about to go back to school for her Doctorates.
I wish everyone a friendship like this:
