“Only after disaster can we be resurrected. It’s only after you’ve lost everything, that you’re free to do anything.”
– Tyler Durden (Fight Club)

Parents like to tell their children that bad things do not happen to good people.  When we grow up we learn this is not at all true.  In fact, people have been exploring why bad things happen to good people for centuries.  C.S. Lewis wrote an entire book on The Problem of Pain.

Only when you embrace that good/bad things are not directly related to good/bad people can you stop asking why and start planning your next steps.

In fact, bad times can be an opportunity to reinvent yourself.  When you are freed of the forces that bind you to your current path you are free to choose a new one.  Disaster can lead to despair or resurrection.  Where will it lead you?
