"I believe" - A mini-essay


Hey babes! GL girl Kristal Q. wrote in with this mini-essay. Take a peek and tell us what ya think in the comments. And don't forget to submit your own poem, story, picture or essay for You Wrote It!

 

I believe in life, everything happens for a reason 

 

I believe in life everything happens for a reason and that every reason is a blessing in the form of a lesson. Now the lesson may be disguised in a multitude of ways some good more often than not as struggles and difficulties, losses and failures but lessons nonetheless. It was this realization or way of thinking many years ago that changed my life. It gave me an understanding of what, not just my life was about but life in general and it made me see and understand things clearly. It was as though I had taken off sunglasses and was looking at the clear light of day for the first time. So now when things happen I stop and ask myself this one question “What is the lesson I am supposed to learn here” I may not find or understand the answer right away and that’s ok. The important thing is that I keep asking the question. So when things happen in your life take a moment to stop and ask yourself what are you supposed to learn from what is happening because I can guarantee that you are supposed to be learning something.

You let her BFF borrow your fave top for a party last Saturday but when she returns it, it looks nothing like the top you remember buying. It has holes, stains and only one shoulder. What do you say to your gal pal?
