Today I drove by a billboard with the words, "Stuff happens" Right there it hit me, stuff does happen all the time! When it does happen, we don't always react the way we should. Rather that stuff be a last minute scheduled doctor's appointment, a paper cut (the worst kind), or heaven forbid something more drastic. These little occurrences are what make us or break us, we can choose to response with agitation or trust that everything that happens, happens for a purpose. That's the sole beauty of life, we don't always know what to expect on a day to day basis, it's a journey, an adventure, a pursuit towards the common goal (or whatever you want to call it). Life happens, and when it does embrace it, remain calm and don't worry God always has a plan.
Entering into the crossroads of life can feel like a ton of bricks falling on top of us, it's overwhelming at first but in time, we learn to realize the importance of what is being taught. A good friend recently told me, there is no such thing as missed opportunities, just lessons to be learned. We, being creatures of habit, cringe when things suddenly change, but change is a very good thing. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Honestly, without change, life would be boring. As the clock ticks at every second, so we move from one place to another in our thoughts, our words, our actions except when we are sleeping. Life is filled with a ton of surprises, the question is not in rather we open our eyes to see them but in opening our hearts to accept what each moment brings; the good, the bad, and the ugly. It's easier said then done, but live each moment like it's your last. Be present everywhere you go and don't forget to smile! Lots of Love!! <3 :)
