I mean, when things are going really well, don’t you ever have the thought in the back of your mind that something bad is about to happen? It’s the proverbial calm before the storm, right? Let’s face it: problems are an inevitable part of life. And the only thing that remains is whether we know how to live well even amidst the rainy days of life.
