It's been a while since I've had some chit chat on the blog. The truth is I've been so overwhelmed with various things happening around me that I lost the motivation to post as frequently as I normally would.
But fret not, I am back and I have a few interesting posts lined up for the next few weeks.
Today's post is all about accepting that everything that happens in our lives, happens for a reason.
For the past few weeks I have encountered some challenges in my relationships and other aspects of my life. That probably explains why I had the lack of motivation to blog and focus on other things.
But one particular morning I woke up with a peaceful mind and in a place of happiness , realising that "everything happens for a reason and it's actually ok, I've got this!"
Ever since, I've been happier than ever and things have started working for my good. I have been exposed to so many amazing opportunities and I even managed to bag myself a brand new job!
I know it may be easier said than done but we need to realise that nothing is permanent and that everything changes. "I hate change" or "I'm not used to change" are probably two sentences we use a lot and may consider harmless but truth of the matter is that they really do pollute our minds and thought process and before you know it we begin to apply it in every situation we may face.
Life is a journey, things will happen that will transform who you are, positively or negatively depending on how YOU choose to handle them, and have an impact on your life.
We need to cultivate the ability to truly accept whatever comes and embrace it.
Recently, I had to let go of a relationship that did not benefit me spiritually and emotionally and trust me it took a lot of praying, meditating and advice from my beloved sister but eventually I had to let go and let God. I had to accept what had happened, despite it being very difficult, and move along.
I've now developed a habit of looking at whatever happens through a positive mindset instead of a negative one. Also, having faith in God and believing that He will never put me through any situation that is too much for me to handle!
Cultivating acceptance in our lives will enable us to cope with future trials in a different way and view them from a different perspective. My situation has strengthened my faith and has allowed me to pinpoint my weaknesses and work on them in order to become a stronger person. As I mentioned before, I became happier and more peaceful when I accepted what had happened instead of constantly trying to change things. Trust me, it got exhausting!
Remember that acceptance is a choice. You can either accept what's happening, see the positives and choose to be content or fight against it and be miserable. I'd advice you not to choose the second option! Feeling happy = momentary happiness. Being happy = enduring happiness.
On a final note, embrace every challenge instead of fighting it by choosing to find the lesson or purpose behind it. Believe that everything happens for a reason, that better things will follow and many doors and windows will open.
I hope today's post has helped and inspired any of you currently facing a situation which you have struggled to come to terms with. This is something that was placed on my heart to share with you all and i hope it was beneficial in some way.
Have a fabulous week!
