Everything happens for the better?

 

We all heard the phrase ‘Everything happens for a reason’, and many times we can justify that statement. We might have made a mistake in the past and learnt the lesson to not make that mistake again. We might have experienced something that gave us valuable lessons and we have learnt and grown due to that experience.

However, do you believe that everything that happens to us is better for us in the end? We often want to achieve certain things in life, like getting a specific job, having a baby, selling a house – and things just don’t turn out the way we had imagined.  Despite all our efforts, we will not get the job, we will not get pregnant and we will not be able to sell the house. Is there a bigger plan that has something better in store for us?

It can be a real struggle when things don’t turn out the way we had imagined or it takes much longer time than we thought. It can be really frustrating when we have prepared ourselves, took all the necessary actions and it still doesn’t work out. What do we do then?

All we can do is have patience, and trust that there is a bigger plan for us. In the meantime, we can focus our energies on what else we can do to improve our life. For example, if you do not get the job, maybe it is time to complete that course you were always interested in, and slowly build your own business. Whatever the situation may be, you can always improve a certain aspect of your life that might help you become the person you really want to be in the future.

Do you work to live or do you live to work?

 

In our busy modern life, we tend to forget about paying attention to the most important thing, to our own self. People would generally think that caring about your own self too much is being selfish. In fact, taking good care of yourself is not selfish at all.

Taking care of your health is not selfish. If you are not in good health, how can you take care of your loved ones, and how can you live the life you are meant to live? In our busy lifestyle, we often forget to take care of our health. We might get overstressed, we might eat too much junk food, we might not eat enough good food that would support our well-being; and as a result, we might end up in sickness. Is it really worth it? Wouldn’t it be better to just slow down sometimes and find ourselves?

Unfortunately, in our modern days, a lot of people seem to work long hours just to pay their bills. Do you really live to pay the bills? What about the things you enjoy doing, your hobbies and your passion? Are you trying to build your career so hard that you already forgot what you enjoyed doing as a child, your talents or your passion? Why not sacrifice some of your precious time, and do that for a while?!

Afterall, what is the point of life if you are doing a job you do not like and work to pay the bills, the mortgage, the car, etc? I understand that we need to work to support ourselves financially, and that we cannot always do what we like. But there is a point in life when you have to switch off, find your true self and do what you really like. And if you are brave enough to follow your dreams, you might never have to work again just to pay the bills.
