    I THINK IT’S A VERY USEFUL IDIOM WITH A SPECIAL MEANING.NEGATIVE THINGS HAPPEN IN OUR EVERY DAY LIVES, BUT IN A MAGIC WAY THEY MAY HAVE POSITIVE EFFECTS ON US. I THINK THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE: ‘LIVE YOUR LIFE AND THINK POSITIVE BECAUSE EVERY DIFFICULTY,EVERY PROBLEM MAY BE ‘A BLESSING IN DISGUISE’!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!

  • Leandro Cleto

    Here in Brazil will be something as “Take a time to live a life” in portuguese “Deu um tempo para viver a vida”. The sad, is the fact that in some times, we have find a possibility to lost our life to perceive how important are these simple daily things and how we lost time just for working, working and working. Has no sense a life in this way. Enjoy your life, yor family, friends every single day!

  • Baheej Kassem

    It’s really a strong idiom that we can use a lot in our daily life in many situation.
    Idioms make the language richer and interesting.

    The equivalent in spanish would be “no hay mal que por bien no venga” that means despite the bad situation you can take advantage of that in a good way.
