I am of the opinion that every person you meet and every experience you’ve had was necessary to bring you to this time and place. To this moment of expansion and exploration of truth, meaning, destiny and purpose.
Many do not believe this. And that’s ok. I understand how difficult it is to accept that hardship and pain are meant to exist. Yet, I have observed that everything in its own way matters. That it is what you do with your life experiences that shape your existence. That what has happened to you is only relevant in conjunction to the meaning you make of it.
My wish for you is that you might receive each experience in such a way that you fully engage in it and totally own it.
If it serves you well, hold onto it. And if it does not, after holding it and accepting it as a part of your journey, lay it down and walk away.
And be glad that everything matters, because that makes everything meaningful.
