Does everything happen for a reason?

Does everything really happen for a reason?

I don’t know for sure but what I do know for sure…is…I live by…

…Everything DOES happen for a reason.  It keeps me calm, it allows me to live without getting caught up in the drama, it softens my approach to life and helps me stay present.

Yesterday my day was “supposed” to go like this. Breathing, Yoga, Work, Finances, Accountability Call, School Pick Up, Golf, Dinner, Teach Yoga.

Yesterday my day “actually” went like this. Breathing, Yoga, Work, take mom to Emergency because she fell and thought she broke her ankle. (Thankfully she did not; it is a super bad sprain).

Here is the thing, I could have gotten caught up in the drama of my day shifting and changing.  But I did not, I stayed calm, I took it as it came.  We had a nice time together, we talked and laughed. It was not wasted time, it was as it should be, perfect in every way.

Think of it like this, what if you knew the Universe had something in store for you that was extraordinary? Would you fight it? Now way! Would you be willing to miss the opportunity?  No way!

Choose to go with it, choose to know that the Universe has a plan, that everything happens for a reason and see what happens.

Can you make a plan? Yes!

Can you take action? Heck Ya!

…but then you must let it happen!

I think it sums it up perfectly.
