Choose wisely as every decision you make leads to something greater. A great thing happens when you least expect it and those are the most precious moments. The fear of the unknown torments me, yet the fear of the unknown excites me. It lingers there like a shadow and you’re curious to find out what it is. You’ll never know unless you take that chance. It’s a 50-50 outcome: negative or positive. Or it could start out as something terrible, but may lead to a rewarding benefit. Everything in life is a learning experience. Whether it’s a tough one or a simple change, anything can happen and everything happens for a reason. You may not see it, but everything is exactly as it seems.
If my experiences taught me one thing, it is just that EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. This is something I put my entire faith in. This is something I believe in, especially when everything goes south. It’s the kind of saying I often remind myself. The only thing in my heart that stays constant. The popular saying, “When one door closes, another one opens”, is my only honest truth from childhood. If it is meant to be, it is meant to be. Don’t let the fear of uncertainty inhibit the creation for new ideas. Don’t let rejection deter you from chasing your dreams. Don’t let depression take away the beauty of experiencing sadness and turning the sadness into the spark needed to chase happiness. Don’t let the doubt overpower your faith. Don’t let negative energy destroy the faith in your very self.
The other day I came across an inspiring quote by Denzel Washington:
“I’ve found that nothing is worthwhile unless you take risks . . . Fall forward. Every failed experiment is one step closer to success. You’ve got to take risks . . .You will fail at some point in your life. Accept it. You will lose. You will embarrass yourself. You will suck at something. There is no doubt about it. . . Never be discouraged. Never – hold back. Give everything you’ve got. And when you fall throughout life, . . . fall forward.”
For every thought that crosses our minds creates an action and with that action is the determining factor of the next step closer to where we head in life.
But with life, there is room for mistakes. Because mistakes are the biggest contributors in our lives that impacts a change. A change to create a better version of self. A change to move forward in one’s life. A change, no matter how big or how small, a change in heart, a change in routine, a change in future goals. The most beautiful thought is the ambiguity of the future – we have the power to draw out a path for ourselves.
Everything Happens for a Reason. I live by this. It’s not a guilt feeling, it’s not me saying this to make myself feel better. It’s more of like an understanding. I agree with the statement and I believe in helping others to see that things may not pan out as expected to be. Understand that whenever things don’t seem to be going your way, there is something far more greater out there for you. The new internal hurdles that manifested within me on my Thailand journey is just another obstacle I have to learn to overcome. At which, it took me a while to figure out that this is the one challenge that is meant for me in the year 2016. Now, it’s a matter of what I do with the newly found challenge and how I proceed with it. How do I switch the mindset and create a better path. Yesterday was history, it’s how I step forward that counts.
