I believe that everything happens for a reason. My grandmother and mom believe and live this on a daily basis. They have always encouraged me to also. After looking at different situations, you will come to believe this to be true. It can help you through the best of times and the worst of times. It’s a one size fits all remedy to life. When you think about certain events that have happened to you, whether you know it or not, there’s always an underlying reason for it. Sometimes when something bad happens, it’s because better things are on their way. You wouldn’t treasure all the good things in life unless hard times came along too, to make you appreciate it even more. This belief has brought me to where I am today.
