Do Things Happen For A Reason?

The night we spent talking under the stars, was the night I fell in love with you. I just didn’t know it yet. What we had was messy and complicated. But that night on my balcony, all the doubt, and fear that stood between us suddenly vanished. And being next to you was the only peace I’d felt in months.

Looking back, I know for certain there was something holding us together in the midst of all the chaos. I couldn’t see it because I was afraid to try. And as much as I tried to distance myself from you and ignore the feeling in my heart, it never stopped. It only grew and led me closer into your arms.

There’s no such thing as perfect timing. Good beginnings don’t mean shit. And planning your life is never guaranteed. The best things in life are messy, complicated and completely unexpected.

I never thought I’d be where I am today. In a real relationship, about to graduate with my bachelors, and feeling utterly satisfied. I have a hard time believing that everything I’ve experienced was merely a coincidence.

Every negative experience I’ve had, led to something positive. All the heartbreaks, led to love I never thought existed. All the people I lost, brought me closer to what I needed.

Nothing was perfect, but almost everything was worth it. The more my life begins to unfold, the more I understand why some things had to happen. To strengthen me and teach me a lesson.

When things don’t work out the way we hope, it can be discouraging. One moment you’re working so hard for something, and in an instant that one thing gets ripped out of your hands. Whether it’s a lifelong goal, a job opportunity, a relationship or experience. Having our plans shatter before they happen can make us feel helpless. But it does not mean its the end. It’s usually the beginning of something better.

Just because it hasn’t happened yet, doesn’t mean it never will. If you keep fighting for what you want, the moment will come.

Never tie yourself to one goal, one person, one city, when there is so much we have yet to explore. You don’t know who you’re going to meet, who will stay and who will go. You don’t know where you’ll be years from now, or what your purpose is.

We like to think we know exactly where our lives are heading, but we have no way of knowing what will happen. When it comes to love, the universe has a way of bringing people together or tearing them apart. Like an invisible energy merging between two souls. If it’s meant to be the two souls eventually gravitate towards one other, despite all obstacles.

If something feels right to you, pursue it. Listen to that feeling, and see where it takes you. All you can do is go with the flow and see how things unfold. Nothing will ever be guaranteed, but isn’t it worth finding out what could be?

Don’t let moments pass you by just because you’re afraid of what might happen. If it seems scary at first, it’s because its worth it. The best things are always unexpected.
