I once took a sewing course. The sewing teaching was a lady who dispensed wisdom as she taught sewing. She told us about a girl that she knew, who was heartbroken after breaking up with her boyfriend.
Someone asked the girl to sew a wedding dress. The girl got to work on this project and had such a great time making the dress that she got over her boyfriend in a week!
If something does not work out the way that you hoped it would, find something else to concentrate on and put your energy into that and you will recover much faster from your disappointment and heartache.
Praying for the Poor Souls in Purgatory is an excellent project to pour your energy into.
