One advantage of our losses is that we create better roads leading us to our goals. If one really misses what he wanted and could not achieve it, then he would be determined to get it through some way or the other. One year back I was stuck in a similar situation. I lost a great opportunity. Probably the loss seemed to be bigger to me than it actually was because I trusted in God too much and not myself. Or maybe I had believed that opportunity to be my one and only final destination. And when I lost, I felt helpless because I had closed all the other doors just for that particular door. We should always set multiple options and tracks to reach our goals. Atleast one thing which I learned from the loss was that I started to create opportunities instead of finding them or waiting for God to grant me an opportunity. I know creating an opportunity does not really help because in the end everything is in the hands of God. But while I was trying to create opportunities for myself, I got polished, learned many other things and above all explored new routes and even new goals which seemed to be more important to me than the previous locked door of the missed opportunity. At some points I also realized that the new goals which I had explored were more beneficial, easily achievable and even more attractive. I still miss the the missed chance and the lost key for the locked door everyday. I wish I could have it but today my feeling of wish is less intense than it was last year, because I have found other major doors which can help me enter the world I have always wanted. Through this one year journey I have realized that I am turning into a self made person instead of my old version who used to depend on people and shortcuts for her dreams. Self-made people can always get benefits through their skills when and where ever needed. On the other hand dependent people looking for shortcuts, sometimes get successful and are able to anchor their ships to a rigid support but if the rigid support falls down sometime then there is no guarantee of the dependent ship.
