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.
