Everything For A Reason

By Claire Enos

Recently, it came to my attention, that the saying/belief that everything happens for a reason is as true as it can get. I could write a novel on decisions I made and how they led me to where I am right now, all happening within the last three years or so. This all really struck home as I watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer last night. It was part one of the season 2 finale and I was distracted emailing people and trying to write blog posts. All of a sudden, these words penetrated my concentration and I ended up looking them up.

"Bottom line is even if you see 'em coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So what, are we helpless? Puppets? No. The big moments are gonna come, can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's when you find out who you are. You'll see what I mean."

You know, it really is these moments that show us who we are. What we choose to do with what we are handed in life really shows who we are and who we want to be.

With that, have an amazing week.



  1. For some reason I have always had trouble with the saying but not the doing of it. Does that make sense? I do think we control our reactions, but I don't think I like having too. LOL

  2. Well said, Claire! and LOL Terri! I totally understand what you said.
