Trials are often Blessings in Disguise

When I was 21 years old I had a mission call from my church to serve as a missionary in Argentina. A week before I was suppose to report in, I decided not to go. 

If I had decided to serve that mission, I don't know if I would have met and married Jayson

 Sometimes when things are falling apart they may actually be falling into place.

After being married a few years we lost a business and went years without income. Losing our home and cars and ultimately filing bankruptcy. 

If everything had worked out perfectly with that business I don't think Jayson ever would have started working for my dad. 

Because Jayson started working for my dad, we moved to Idaho Falls. 

If we never lived in Idaho Falls I don't know if I ever would have met Scottie Hobbs

If I had never heard about Scottie Hobbs and Beachbody, I may never have learned about Shakeology and been inspired to do P90X. 

If I had never had a transformation I wouldn't be a coach. 

 What seems to us as bitter trials are often blessings in disguise.

And if we had never struggled financially, I don't know if I would have hustled like I did when the opportunity came along for me to be a coach. 

If Jayson had loved being an employee and didn't miss the freedom of being an entreprenuer, I don't think I would have felt so driven to create a way for him to retire. 

Because that drive was there and the willingness to HUSTLE - the opportunity was created for God to bless us and I was able to retire Jayson and support our family coaching. 

Because we didn't HAVE to live in Idaho Falls for work, we were able to CHOOSE where we wanted to raise our family and make the move to Arizona. 

If we weren't living in Arizona I don't know if flying would have crossed my mind. Arizona is a big hub for pilots with several small airports. Thanks to the big blue skies, minimal clouds, and gorgeous year round weather. 

If I hadn't been able to sit outside with my laptop, watching planes fly over my head over and over again, I don't know if the dream of flying would have ever come to me. 

If I wasn't able to set my own schedule I wouldn't be able to take flying lessons at whim, not to mention have the means to pay for it all.

So here I am...... Flying.  
Taking lessons to be a pilot.  
Almost done with my certificate. 

And to think of ALL the events that took place to bring me here, to this moment, I mean WOW. 

It is humbling, very humbling. 

God sure knows what He's doing, doesn't He? 

Reminding myself this morning that one day, everything WILL make sense. 

All the twisted crooked paths have purpose.  ✌🏼
