Frustration is a feeling we get when things don’t seem to be going our way. I try to think positive when frustration hits, but it’s so hard when your emotions are going 100 miles a minute and all you can think about is what you are not getting and what is hurting you in the moment. Everything happens for a reason though! Right??? I mean that’s what I’ve always said, and even my mom said, that I was a true believer in that. For goodness sakes I even preach it to others, but why is it so much more difficult in the moment to believe that what is happening is really for a reason?
Everything Happens for a Reason…..
Who came up with this saying? And why is it that in the end I TRULY believe this to be true? Many things have happened to me that I still don’t know the meaning for, and some things happen where I turn around and say “wow that really needed to happen for me to get where I am now”. Of course this didn’t happen right in the moment. Sometimes I want to just scream and throw a tantrum like when you are 2 years old. Sometimes I want to just cry and ask why oh why. And sometimes I just want to be left alone to think about what is truly happening in the moment and wonder if this doesn’t happen, if this doesn’t go my way, what’s next?!?
In those moments….
When everything seems to be going wrong, I sometimes get this calming feeling come over me, like something or someone telling me that everything is going to be okay. It’s strange, but I believe that feeling, and I take in that calm comforting feeling that everything is really going to be just “OKAY”. Even though I don’t always understand why “things happen for a reason”. I know that it must be true, because we just don’t get where we are by accident, we get there with the choices we make, with the the actions we choose and we get there because “things happen for a reason”.
