All for a Reason?

I am so not a completer finisher, I actually have just gotten up in the middle of doing something else because this just needed to be written right now. I had to write a Bio on my self recently and I said that ‘I write because I have to’, and it is so true sometimes the thoughts that spin loudly around in my head just need a place to come out.

So last night someone threw a curve ball at me, I was so not expecting what they told me, one of those ‘not in a million years’ would I ever even imagined this scenario. How cool is that? Not the situation because that is sad and brave and a show how beautiful people really can be, but the unpredictability of life. I was lost for words at first and if you know me you will know that this is a rare occurrence. Most of us hate change and hate things out of the normal but I am beginning to learn to embrace it and see that there is only one constant in life it is change. Being alive is awesome and I love it when my preconceived ideas about people and situations are challenged.

So when something hugely unexpected happens what do you do? Do you let it go past and happen in a calm way that the person planned or do you think that just maybe people cross paths at the right time and for a reason. I choose the later, I threw a curve ball straight back. I am not totally sure of the response yet but it does not matter, it has served to highlight for me the power we can have in each others lives and that the damage we caused in some lives might be atoned for in others. Well at least I hope so.

I apologies for the cryptic nature of this blog but for now and maybe for always it is needed, this is not my story to share, just to maybe walk alongside and offer what support I can.

Do you believe that people cross your path at a certain time for a reason?

  1. Absolutely. My Dad has always told me about the tides. Sometimes, the tide brings in sea shells etc and deposits it on the shore. Sometimes, they stay there, and sometimes, they wash away. Some stay forever, and others are fleeting. Like friends, and people. Some are there forever, and some, for a short while, either which way, they impact you.

  2. I really do not that people do cross your path at a certain time for a reason, what that may be. There was numerous times in my life, if I look back into my past, where people have crossed my path and when looking back, I realize in many scenarios which have happened in my life, that there are indeed a reason why people have crossed my life.

  3. My thoughts on this are so mixed up, not sure how to express it without contradicting myself totally lol – but yes there is a reason for every crossed path and experience, what we take away from it though is influenced by the choices we take.

  4. Your blog reminded me of an email I once got; it read:

    People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.

    When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand…then you realize that your need has been met.

    Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done…but only for a season.

    LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.

    Hope it reads well & gives some insight?
