Sometimes, it takes a problem to open up a new perspective.
On the weekend, we were looking for somewhere different to go for a walk. The place that we originally planned to go was blocked off because of COVID-19 restrictions.
I ended up stopping the car at a fairly random spot, a few kilometres away. As it turned out, this place was even more beautiful than the place we had planned to go. And, had we not encountered the roadblock in the first place, we would never have found this better place.
So before you start cursing that problem that's just landed in your lap, perhaps consider the opportunities that may be hiding on the other side.
