Everything happens for a reason

I am sure you heard this cliche quote before: "Everything happens for a reason". I personally believe in this. From all what happened to me, the good and the bad, the laughs and the tears, the success and the fails, the love and the heartbreaks, the hellos and the goodbyes...I learned that nothing happens by mistake and yes, truly, everything happens for a reason.

We succeed for a reason
We fail for a reason
We are rich for a reason
We are poor for a reason
We meet good people for a reason
We meet bad people for a reason
We fall in love for a reason
We break up for a reason

Nothing happens because we're simply not lucky. Never! There is no such thing called luck. There is a hidden message in every single thing that is happening to us. These messages might be anonymous at the beginning and sometimes for years but they do exist. Sometimes we can know them on the spot, sometimes we discover them as we move on.
I kept on feeling sorry for myself whenever a bad thing happens until I started relating all the good things that are happening now to all the painful experiences I had before. It's what I call the "Connecting Dots" game. A funny game. Whenever you know how to play it, you will enjoy it! It will teach you how to be patient  and how to let go. It will grow your faith in God. And on top of all this, you will end up waiting for the message whenever something happens. But all this require an open mind and a faithful heart.

Didn't you hear about this beautiful saying: سبحان الله مسبب الأسباب? Which means, God creates the reasons! Why? To teach us, to help us, to protect us, to forgive us...
So next time, whatever happens to you, even if it's impossible to swallow, be patient and have faith. Open your heart, open your mind and think about the reason behind it. If you couldn't see it, just wait, because you will, sooner or later, and you'll be amazed by what you may discover!
This, and exactly this, will nurture you.


Open your heart, open your mind and think about the reason behind it
