How many times do we wonder why events happened as they did? We mull over the details, analyzing and over analyzing the way things played out. It’s important to reflect on our role in a given situation and consider how we may have contributed to the circumstances. That's how we grow. However, if we reach a point where we're bouncing from what went wrong to what we said to what we didn’t say to what we did to what we didn’t do – we have to take a deep breath, find the lesson, and let the rest go.
Life is complex. Circumstances don't always make perfect sense. Some of our experiences are incredibly fortunate and uplifting while others can be disappointing and disheartening. But - there is a Higher Power at work and hopefully deep in our core, we trust that everything that happens is for our ultimate good. We may not always get what we want or understand what we get, but we do get what we need – every challenge can be perceived as an opportunity for spiritual, emotional, and mental growth. This internal shift allows us to find peace, love, and a more profound connection to life and to ourselves.
