I believe that all events happen for a reason weather it is a lesson to be learned, a benefit to you, or to shape your future. Have you ever been in a situation where you wonder why this is happening or why did this happen to me? How about looking back at past events and wondering how your life would be if that didn’t happen? I do it all the time, when I look back and see why and where I am today thanks to everything that happened in the past. This belief is very helpful to me because it helps me look at the bright side of thing and it creates a positive attitude for me.
I have had many experiences with my belief which has lead me to believe that there is a reason behind it all. The real idea behind this is there is something or some kind of force weather it is religious or scientific I can’t possible know and as for what I believe, well that is another story. I started realizing this belief not only the more I looked back, but also forward. Thinking what my life can be and what to do now to insure that is what will happen. I don’t know when exactly I started to believe it Just that eventually it became my belief.
This is what I believe because of all the coincidences that have happened so far. Like with my best friend who I thought I meet for the first time in Junior high, but when we were younger we went to an after school camp called Raw and Rak and also were in the same boy scouts together and never knew. The main reason I am the person today is because of how my parents raised me, the places I have been, and the people I meet. While I was growing up I didn’t have the best life my parents fought and eventually broke up which showed me how hard relationship can be and how easy they are to ruin.
Being emotionally sensitive when I was younger taught me how easy it is to hurt someone with words, how strong words can be, and how to ignore what people say. Going to church gave me the feeling that I am never alone. Going to boy scouts gave me a lot of common sense. Joining my school band help me appreciate music and listening to classic music helped my focus is school. Meeting and getting to know my teachers and other adults gave me more maturity for my age. All these thing shaped me and made me how I am today, but is doesn’t stop here. Every day changes me into the person I will become.
You may think why would something like waking up late for work or school happen for a reason, how can something like this benefit me. It could me that it is a lesson to be learned, like being late for school is a lesson that you have to manage you time better or get some more sleep. Maybe you get dumper by your significant other, which could be a lesson to change how you treat others or Just that they weren’t right for you. I remember I would be late to school because, I over slept or stayed up too late the other night. And when my brother and sister would gang up on me because I lways pick on them.
Those were lessons to be learned. My belief also helps me with my morale, since you see everything in a different way. Instead of school and homework being boring and feeling like a waste of time it becomes work towards a goal for being a better person. And losing a love one turns into learning how precious life is and that it should be lived to the fullest. It lowers my stress because I spend less time wondering why am I in a bad situation and more the future it has made all present experiences all the better because there are reasons behind them.
Not Just some luck or bad luck good days and bad days it all becomes a reason to move on to something new and change the old to something different. When I look towards the future it’s not full of wonder and fear of what is to come, but instead it becomes an opportunity to make and create and better future that I want. And that is one thing, Just because I believe everything happens for a reason doesn’t mean that your future is set that it is what it is. You still have control over it and what it can become.
The reason it feels like this is because you make the ecision of what you what your future to be and work towards it and all the choices become the reason and it shapes you and your future and it is your choice. Say you want to be an artist then work you your skills practice art try new thing think what an artist’s life would be and work towards it. If you what to play sports in your future and be on a team then you have to work towards that future. People who become homeless or Jobless and are unhappy with their life got to that point because of what action they chose and paths they took.
I have really benefited for my belief. I have plans and goals for my future and I am happy with my life and less stressful. I don’t get discouraged by negative events and instead I thrive from the learning for past mistakes. And one of the things that I have learned that is important is that people of all ages are affected by your acting and your mood. Just saying hi to someone or complementing then on something could affect their whole day. Which is something I learned firsthand through my life and I learned it through my belief. There are many other lessons I have learned and they have changed my life.
