Everything Happens For a Reason

If you haven’t yet noticed–I am a bit obsessed with quotes! Each of my posts usually begin with a new one. And when you think about it, we will never truly run out of them! As long as people are talking, we will have things to quote.

I love how it’s such a perfect way to bring people together. Whether it’s from a children’s book that we all know and love, or a catchy song that we play on repeat, there are words all around us that we can live by.

“Everything Happens For a Reason” for example.

When you think about the way the world works, it can get quite confusing to say the least! With all of our separate views on life, our religious beliefs, and so on…

Now I’m no professor, and I sure as heck don’t understand the scientific side of things, but one thing I DO believe in is d-e-s-t-i-n-y.

I truly believe that everything in fact, does happen for a reason–and there are no such things as accidents! You may or may not agree with me, to each their own of course. But why not!?

Why not believe in something greater! Something far too complex for our minds to imagine.

In a world so full of confusion and stress, I personally adore the idea of something out there already with a plan for me. A life full of ups and downs, but each one mapped out as for the next one to follow.

It seems almost settling in a way. No matter what happens, it will all work out. It always has, it always will.

So just remember, when you feel like all you’ve been thrown are curveballs, and the world seems to be against you–keep moving forward. The things you’re worried about now probably won’t matter in a year from now, or 5 years from now…

Bumps in the road were put there so that we appreciate the calm and enjoyable journey ahead. You know what they say: “When Life Gives You Lemons.”

*Maybe you have an example to share about a time that you’ve experienced your life perfectly mapping out–even when you didn’t seen it coming? I’d love to hear your stories!*

    Great thoughts, Taylor. Though I’ve never liked that phrase, I think you’ve treated it in a way we can find common ground on. I like Plato’s understanding of “destiny”. He called it “telos”. For instance the telos/destiny of every acorn is an oak tree. However, Plato would point out, sometimes squirrels get in the way of our telos/destiny. So I believe that our telos is to become what we were created to become, recognizing that all the squirrels that get in the way are opportunities to chart a new course, uniquely our own, but in partnership with our telos/destiny.

    And then, from one other line in your blog, I would add what I heard a friend of mine say recently; “It’s a bad day, not a bad life. Keep moving forward.”
