Everything that has happened to you so far in life has happened FOR you. It is the combination of every single event and every single person you have met so far in life that has made you into the person you are today. You may not realize it in the moment, and it may take a very long time to find the “good” in some situations, but trust that everything that happens is for a reason — to help you grow and become the person you were meant to be. Learn to embrace each experience and situation that happens to you and view it as a gift to you and the world.
This is THE mantra that gets me through the tougher days in life. When something unfortunate happens in my life that is out of my control, I remind myself that it is a gift. And I truly DO believe it. Some of my most difficult situations have turned out to be my greatest blessings.
Eventually, when we look back on our lives, we will be able to understand the gift in each situation, no matter how unfortunate it may have seemed in the moment.
Try it now. Identify one event in your life that seemed unfortunate when it happened, but it turned out to be a blessing.
The next time something unfortunate happens that is out of your control, gently remind yourself that it is happening for a good reason and is in fact a gift. 🙂
