From A Candle by Day by Rabbi Shraga Silverstein – Sometimes we are better

Sometimes we are better off when things are going badly than not particularly well; for in the first instance, we generally undertake to straighten things out, whereas in the second, we often wait for them to straighten themselves out. It is easier to solve a big problem by working at it than a small one by doing nothing about it.
