"everything happens for a reason"
is waiting for that reason
to come along
If only we had an explanation for why things happen, we would be better off right? Make the right decisions, react rationally, and always be our best selves? If only it were that simple. The saying, "Everything happens for a reason." is one that I've always believed in, even during those moments where you cannot possibly fathom why such terrible things do happen. Unfortunately, those reasons don't always come as soon as we would like, sometimes it's years before we even get a clue into why our lives took a certain path. In those cases (as we all know, most cases) we just have to be patient and have faith. Accept the fact that we never understand everything the first time around, rather we just have to remember that God has a plan for us. And with that in mind, we need to work on being our best of selves, no matter what gets thrown our way.
