Everything happens for a reason! I truly believe in this phrase. I know, I know…- some of you will say it is easier to say than to really believe and live by that, but I really do. Things happen in our lives; things that we not always agree with or don’t understand the true meaning at the time. It is hard to get our head around it, we search for “why” but sometimes one door needs to close so the other opens for us. I went through it few times… I know what I’m talking about. You feel like the world it ending and everything is against you, but in the reality you came to the end of the path and are at the crosswords where the new path starts. Sometimes we are too comfortable in the present situation, even when it is not ideal for us, and don’t want changes as they are disturbing our comfortable stagnation. How many times you complained about something but didn’t really do anything about it?!
Eventually all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON.”
— Albert Schweitzer
Bye bye old, welcome new!
I was told this week that my job position was made redundant. I liked my job and was good at it, but to be honest, I felt I need a change for a while now. When I heard the news I was devastated first, then a little bit angry, then… I just stopped myself and thought about it… Didn’t I need a change?! Was I happy?! Why am I surprised? That’s right! One door closes, another one opens. Everything happens for a reason! It is my chance to do something new and exciting! Leaving the known comfortable world for a new challenge! It is scary a bit but it is sooooooo exciting! Bring on the change!!! I’m ready!
Relax and enjoy the lesson!
Every experience, every action you take, shapes your life, your character and your story. The people who you meet on your journey who affect your life and teach you something, and all the success and failures you experience- all of them help to create who you are and who you become. In fact, especially the bad experiences, the ones which left the mark in you, are probably the most poignant and important ones. Make every day and experience count. Appreciate every moment in your life and take from those moments everything that you possibly can. You may never be able to experience it again. Whether it is, a person or an event, that brings you the lesson- learn and enjoy. Then apply it in your life!
Out of the welter of life, a few people are selected for us by the accident of temporary confinement in the same circle. We never would have chosen these neighbours; life chose them for us. But thrown together on this island of living, we stretch to understand each other and are invigorated by the stretching. The difficulty with big city environment is that if we select—and we must in order to live and breathe and work in such crowded conditions—we tend to select people like ourselves, a very monotonous diet. All hors d’oeuvres and no meat; or all sweets and no vegetables, depending on the kind of people we are. But however much the diet may differ between us, one thing is fairly certain: we usually select the known, seldom the strange. We tend not to choose the unknown which might be a shock or a disappointment or simply a little difficult to cope with. And yet it is the unknown with all its disappointments and surprises that is the most enriching.”
― Anne Morrow Lindbergh “Gift from the Sea”
Are you ready for a change?
You are a creator of your own path, if you believe it or not. Things happen because other things in your life bring them to you to teach you a lesson, aim you in a right direction. Choose your ways, enjoy wins and embrace failures. Create your own life and live it with absolutely no regrets!
I’ve learned that everything happens for a reason,” the yogi Krishnan told him. “Every event has a why and all adversity teaches us a lesson… Never regret your past. Accept it as the teacher that it is.”
