the moment we start to look at all of the happenings in life from a purposeful perspective we are able to appreciate them more. everything/ everyone that we come into contact with serves a purpose, some bigger/ smaller than others… but none without giving us a (small/ big) nudge in the direction that we're supposed to be traveling.
people often say, "I'm right where I'm supposed to be," and while it may not always be what we want to hear at the time, or possibly even believe as it rolls off our tongues, I believe it to read truer with every passing day.
purpose/ reason is rarely revealed immediately. it's more of a 'hindsight is 20/20' concept where it isn't really clear until you look back on it… timespan varies. i've caught myself in certain situations recently where I'm sometimes able to recognize the beauty/ reasoning of why something has happened, or is happening a lot sooner than I may have noticed it before I tapped into this way of thinking.
why did I meet this person?
what role did I play in this persons development/ progression, and vice versa?
what did a situation bring out of me/ contribute to pushing me a little closer to where I am now/ where I want to be?
there's always a reason.
some people come into your life solely as a distraction,
some people are walking lessons/ examples to one persons life, all while being something completely different to someone else.
sometimes you experience a setback only to realize in the long run it put you in the best position ever to prepare for what was to come next,
some people are put into your life to teach you loyalty by being the absolute worst example of it, sometimes we miss the lessons/ reasons and they are given to us over and over again until something finally clicks,
the list goes on,
and I'm grateful for everything on it
it's all very interesting to watch unfold and it's caused me not to question as much in a 'woe is me' way, and more so in a 'where is this taking me' way.
it's all a part of our journey and it truly is a magnificent one.
but I'm rambling, and drinking wine as I write this.
