One Day, What You’re Going Through Will All Makes Sense

It’s hard to see at the time, but whenever we’re going through a difficult time, it is the Universe that is realigning our lives to better fit what we are asking for and who we are becoming. It doesn’t quite make sense when we’re going through it, and it’s easy to feel like a victim in situations like this, as though life is not with us but rather against us. It’s only much later, however, that we realize that this difficult moment we are going through right now was essential for our journey and for our growth. That it was a meaningful part of our experience here in life.

One day, things will make sense. But for right now, all we can do is try to see the good in what’s happening to us and trust the process that everything will figure itself out in time. It’s difficult to see the blessings when all that’s coming our way is seemingly problems. But in times like these, it’s more important than ever that we trust the path that we’re on and even try to enjoy the bitter times if we can. Because one day, the bitter times will prove to be the sweet ones.

One day soon, you’ll know why this is happening. And one day soon, everything will make sense to you. Because the Universe happens to have a very strange way of working things out in your favor, even if it doesn’t quite seem like it at the time. That I can tell you for sure.

When it doesn’t work out in a relationship, it only means someone better is coming along to sweep you off your feet. If you don’t get the job you always wanted, perhaps it was never meant for you anyway, and there’s something even better just around the corner. And if you fail or fall on your face while going after your dreams, it just means that you need to learn a valuable lesson that will help you get to your goal before you reach it. And in the end, perhaps you’ll even appreciate your goal much more when you finally get there.

So you see, life is nothing but our subjective perspective. We create the meaning to everything in our lives. And if the meaning of everything is fundamentally neutral to begin with, then perhaps we have the power to create the meaning in our lives in a way that aligns with our core values. That’s the beauty of everything. It’s all just a dream.

Each and every one of us is here for a temporary human experience to live in a way that either fulfills us or drains us. How we choose to live is entirely dependent on our perspective and how we decide to see things. But most importantly, everything that happens to you doesn’t necessarily have to make sense in the moment, but rather it can serve a much longer purpose for you in the long run. Because you, after all, are the sole creator of your life, and what you’ll make of the inevitable ups and downs is entirely your choice.

You may not know why you’re going through a difficult time right now. You may want to point the finger at life and blame your external circumstances for how you’re currently feeling. But at the very same time, I impress upon each and every one of us to make the best out of bad situations and search for the blessing rather than the problem from it all. If you look close enough, there’s always so much to be grateful for even in the inherently bad things that may happen to us.

Some of the greatest things that have ever happened in my life have been after an exceedingly difficult period where I was forced to grow. And at the time, it didn’t make sense and I questioned everything about it, including my beliefs. But eventually, the path revealed itself and I realized all of it was a necessary part of my journey that got me to where I am today.

So remember, you are exactly where you need to be to receive the lessons that will get you to where you want to go. Life is always working for you. It is never against you. Enjoy each and every passing moment and take whatever you choose to create from it. Life is a blessing, and all you have to do is trust.
