Everything in Life Happens for A Reason
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
― Marilyn Monroe
When I think about life and where it has led me, I sometimes feel like I have taken a wrong turn and gone off my path, but then I look at my son, and I feel like the choices that I have made, have led me here, and that everything in my life has happened for this one main reason — to be his mom, and be the best I can be.
People change, and they change on a daily basis, constantly and we can never be prepared enough for that. Everyone has a life to live, and every day things change them, change them without any realization. But it is part of life — change, the world grows and evolves, and so do we. We keep moving, growing, and evolving and so does everyone else, it is a part of life, a part of this cycle of life we are all in.
When we understand that everything and anything in life happens for a reason, it gets easier to live, to live this life to the fullest, and make life choices based on who we are, where we want to go, who we want to be and where we want to end up.
At the end of this life, there will be you and only you, with your own thoughts, with your own memories, with your own regrets, and your own victories in life. And only then we will get a moment of clarity — that everything in life happened for a reason, and everything we did or did not do, has led us here, at the very end — either at the end, we will enjoy or despise, it is up to us.
