Things always work out, no matter what. Be present and learn the lessons and there is value in every experience. This world will teach you lessons, whether it is the hard or the easy way. The way to choose the easy way is to learn the lessons before they knock you on the ground, hard. Usually we are receiving messages, through dreams, through life, and through other messengers long before we actually learn the lesson the hard way.
So tune into life. Not only listen, but learn and then the learning will not be so hard.
