On the bright side of sickness

"Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity."
I've always believed that even the darkest of life's moments can have a bright side, as well, but only if we're willing to make the effort and look for it. It may suck to either get sick or be sick, but we may surprise ourselves if we think about the ways illness can change us for the better.

I know it seems preposterous, because no one ever wants to get sick. But we don't always choose when G-d might snap his fingers. And the pulling-good-from-not-so-good thing is resonating with me for some reason.

Am I simply being wishful or is there some merit to this?

So very true Carmi, and it is the only way to be.

I agree, I think there is a reason for everything.. it may not be so obvious at first but eventually there comes an understanding..
