Reasons…12 days of Christmas

Lucia posted these words in 2018, and showed us just what they meant through the year and 5 months that followed…

Everything happens for a reason. What will be will be. It is what it is.

Those ‘fate will have its way’ sayings…what does everyone think of them?

Personally I believe in that kind of thing – to an extent. I do think things happens for a reason.

I just think that sometimes the reason is because I’m a freaking eejit. Sometimes the reason is because I worked damn hard. Sometimes the reason is because there was a goal I wanted to accomplish.

What will be will be…if you go for it and don’t give up.

It is what it is, or is it what you make it?

Sometimes we have very little control over things, something I have really struggled to accept over the years.

Sometimes it is just up to fate, or science, or karma or God or all of the above, whatever you believe.

But sometimes, and I would reckon a lot more often, what happens is down to us. Our choices. Our actions. Our mindset.

One of my favourite quotes… “when writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen” reminds me that you might not always be able to control exactly what happens but you can always do something about it. You won’t get anywhere just sitting back and letting life happen around you.

No one else can or should decide your story – that particular book has to be written by you.

People can so often be spectators in their own life, carrying on with things even when it’s not what makes them happy, or isn’t what they really truly want to be doing.

Is there something you have always wanted to do but the opportunity never presented itself? Or you’ve been too nervous to dive in and go for it? Afraid of what people will say?

Let’s make 2019 the year to take a leap of faith.

Everything happens for a reason…sometimes the reason is courage.

The reason is YOU.
