I know, I know, you’ve heard that one WAY too many times. Plus, isn’t it annoying when someone says those words while you are in the crux of a particular situation? Don’t you feel like telling them, thanks, but no thanks? But then, when all hell has finally passed, when we realize that Eh! it had in fact happen for a reason, don’t things start to make sense again?
Over the years I’ve become confident and trusting in what Life brings me. I do not mean to say that I never get angry or frustrated, but I do look at things and events differently. Ok, you’re right, maybe not always immediately, but once I’ve taken a step back and a few deep breaths, I often realize that everything is fine. In fact, everything is the way that it should be.
Sure, I’ve been accused of being a defeatist, but I think of myself as an open-arm, bring-it-on type of person. I mean, it is not because I do not wish something to happen that it won’t. However, it is not because something might happen that it will. And that being said, there is no need to worry about things that do not yet exist. Easy to say, yes, but if you think about it, this is how it IS, and no, kicking and screaming will not get you where you want to go.
So take a step back and take that deep breath, maybe two or tree even. Understand that there is more to life than this. Trust that whatever you are going through right now will make you stronger and will have been worth while in the end. I know that this is not something you want to hear, but sometimes, things just happen for a reason.
