Everything happens for a reason...really?

I'm not one of those people who believes that "everything happens for a reason", I never have been. I think that things just happen. That's it. It's just what you choose to do that gives it a reason. Does that make sense? I think that people want to believe everything happens for a reason because it makes them feel better, that way when things go wrong have no fear...there is a reason for it. But I believe that things just happen, maybe because God allowed them to. Ultimately it is up to us to determine which direction our lives will take. When circumstances get hard, are you going to plant your feet and stop progressing? Or will you move on looking for that next open door? I hope and pray that my life is a series of steps forward, continuing on that lifelong journey to be the best woman, wife, mother, friend that I can be (with God's help). I never want to plant my feet and say "I've had enough! I quit!" Here's to perseverance! The next time something goes wrong, don't think to yourself "oh, everything happens for a reason." Instead, ask yourself what should be your next step.

  1. Love this, Anna! It's just a product of the fallen world we live in. Sometimes things are the consequences of our actions and sometimes they just are. Senseless, but true...
