I’m a firm believer that life happens for a reason. It’s not always a good, positive reason, nor is it always an advantage or of any help at the time. Life can be completely random, so can the reasons it happens.
There is always reason. The choices we make are made to teach us something. We’re always learning from good and bad decisions. We’re meant to take something away from our experience.
When things work out well, it’s likely that someone gave some help, insight or advice along the way. Thank them. They made the decision to help you. (Purpose, meet reason.)
When things don’t work out so well, or something happens to shake up your world, the reason isn’t always as clear. It’ll come, eventually. Don’t go looking for it, it won’t be obvious. It’ll be something that will follow you and influence your entire life.
Make yourself a better person in light of the decision or event. Whether it’s influence was good or bad, make the effort to work on yourself. Learn from your experience. Become better, become stronger.
We’re all here for a reason.
-Enjoy the ride.
