Does Everything Really Happen For a Reason?

Does Everything Really Happen For a Reason?

We all like to justify change. It somehow makes it more palatable for us. It pushes the envelope of destiny and fate adjusting our lives.We rationalize that whatever has happened, however disruptive, is in the end, a positive move. Change pushes our reality buttons and nudges us out of our fantasy world. It forces us to make choices and confront fears. It forces us to better ourselves.

The one thing we usually miss about change is that it rarely is directly about us. We are simply caught in its trap. We are in the right/wrong time at the right/wrong place and are forced to react.

So how does one adjust to change? Having an acceptance that change is constant is the best attitude to foster. Rarely do things continue without change. Belief in one’s ability to be able to push through and adjust is critical for survival. It’s how our body works. We constantly adjust to stay stable and maintain homeostasis.

Life is the proverbial journey of course corrections, redos, and changing desires. We need to work with changes rather than fight what we have no control over. We control our reactions and our desires and constantly learn more about ourselves and manage our situations.

We manage change by trying to make the best of that which is sometimes out of our control. We bounce back and move forward with limited time and resources. We have a desire to embrace the best we can muster. Does everything really happen for a reason? Probably not, but it’s good to think we can have a positive attitude to make it seem that way. We are optimists looking for the rainbows within the clouds. And that’s a good way to live.

Live your dreams,

    This is a great reminder of how to keep things in perspective. Change should grow us, not frustrate us. So many times I run into grumpy people – they constantly complain about this or that changing, then something else changed so they start on that too. I’d rather embrace change and live a longer and fuller life. Thanks for sharing Susan.
