Everything Happens for a Reason

Certain events happen in our lives that completely change our outlook and  consequently the choices we make. Be it  ending a relationship, leaving a job, moving away, losing a loved one, winning  the lottery, finding your soul mate, starting a  family after many years of waiting, overcoming a fatal diagnosis, etc.  This list could go on and on. One may say it is your destiny or karma.

I am a true  believer in the phrase “for every door that closes, four more open.”   I have personally experienced it in my life on many occasions. So often, good  things come out of bad or sad situations.  Growth occurs and lessons  learned benefit others and open their eyes to a world of possibilities.

The search for meaning is perhaps the most definitive aspect of our humanness.  Everyone longs to find or make meaning of their lives and particularly the  difficulties of their lives.

Friends or loved ones may come into your  life for a purpose. This may be to teach you to love, learn to be compassionate,  guide you along a difficult path that you have taken, or to pass on their  knowledge to you. This reminds me of the book “Tuesdays with Morrie” by Mitch  Albom.  It’s a very enlightening story about a teacher who teaches his  student many valuable lessons that he will use throughout his life.

It  is important to remember, despite your circumstances, that life is short and  make every day count.  Appreciate the good times and how fortunate you are  for your irreplaceable experiences. All of your challenges and obstacles have  been opportunities to realize your potential, strengths and to put meaning into  your life.

When you are able to turn around a negative situation and  make the outcome positive, you should feel like you have accomplished the most  wonderful, glorious task.  I have  attached several positive quotes that I  find quite inspiring:

1. We are not human beings on a  spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey.
Stephen Covey

2. Unselfish and noble actions are the most radiant pages in the biography of  souls.
David Thomas

3. Each time someone stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of  others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of  hope.
Robert F. Kennedy

4. If you only look at what is, you might never attain what could be.
Anonymous

5. I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and  frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,  twentieth-century American civil rights leader

6. No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted.
Aesop, Greek fabulist

7. If your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to it.
Jonathan  Winters

8. No fate is worse than a life without a love.
Mexican  Proverb

9. The secret of health for both mind  and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the

future, or anticipate troubles but to live in the present moment wisely and  earnestly.
Buddha

10. Never live in the past but always learn from it.
Anonymous
