We have all heard the saying "Everything happens for a reason", but do we actually believe that?
I wasn't sure if I ever did until recently. Someone very important to me left my life. It didn't make sense at first because I saw this person in my life forever, but what I had to force myself to see was that he was there for a purpose, even if it was only for a short time.He inspired me on the path my life is taking now. I don't know if I would be the person I am becoming now if he hadn't been in my life AND if he hadn't left it, too.
About 8 months ago, he gave me the inspiration to follow my dreams of writing. My vision started with him and when we parted ways, the vision changed. I remember a few days after the sadness wore off my mind started to visualize the stories I am now writing and publishing.
Our lives can take many twists and turns. Its up to us to navigate through the hard times to find the good in it. Its like the rain. Its not all shiny and pretty when it rains but it is necessary for our world to have rain to grow. There is a purpose in everything that happens to us, the good and the bad.
It makes us stronger, it makes us who we are, it makes us grow.
People will come and go, its up to you to see the meaning that a person has in your life. If you look closely at each person around you, you can see why they are there and use it to your advantage. Allow it to mold you into the person you were always meant to be.
