When Unhappiness Leads to Happiness

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”
—M. Scott Peck

That is certainly in interesting perspective. I know we can learn a lot from unhappiness; I'd just never thought of it in quite that way.

Cheryl--I've noticed this in my life. That sometimes things have to get really uncomfortable for me to make the change I need to make, and that change eventually leads to happiness.

Kathy this quote is absolutely so true. It seems like we only learn when painful challenges come along in life. Hope you have a delightful week.
