For the Taking

I’ve always strongly believed that everything happens for a reason. I still do.

But I’ve come to realize that it’s more than that.

What it comes down to is making the best out of the circumstances and situations that are rolled out in front of you. Whether those circumstances are positive or negative, it’s up to you to decide how you’re going to move forward.

Whether there’s a reason or not, “everything” happens anyway. Hell, who even decides the reasons? God? Some higher being whose mind you can’t change anyway?

Weed out and acknowledge the positives. Devour, learn from, but never forget the negatives. Progress. Evolve. Because at the end of it all, you’re the one who makes the ultimate decision. You’re the one to blame if you buckle under pressure. And you’re the one to pat on the back if you overcome the obstacles.

“Everything” happens. That’s just how it is, and always will be. What you take from it is, well…

Yours for the taking.
