Start the conversation fast.
Pitch your dream life. Follow it.
Express your truth.
Envision your future.
Do some action.
Come on, hurry up.
There isn’t enough time.
God knows how many times I’ve had someone say this to me.
God only knows how many hours I’ve been stressing over first impressions and lost opportunities.
Is It Meant to Be?
People say these words to encourage you, to prompt you to action, and, for the fear of missing out, you dive into that rush of the moment, thinking there isn’t enough time. Not enough time to get a job. Not enough time to finish a course or learn a new language. Not enough time to travel the world. Not enough time to find the love of your life.
Moving to and fro into those same old cycles of life, we accept the average. The ordinary.
What if everyone else finishes before me? What if I am the last one to graduate?
What if all my friends get married before me?
The social aspect of things makes us rush and force things.
Instead of letting things run their natural course, we push that fast-forward button in life and focus on chasing goals, instead of just enjoying the journey of life.
Unfortunately, life is not a journey that you can plan as it suits you. Sometimes, things are going for us and other times, nothing happens the way we expect and want.
Things that are meant to be will happen no matter what. You can do everything that’s in your power, you can go against common sense and try to crack a brick wall with your head if you will, but one thing is certain: you will have the control for as long as it’s given to you.
Control is an illusion and life has a funny way of proving us that. No matter how much we force or rush timings and events, if the Universe, God hasn’t planned those for us, all our efforts are vain.
If it’s meant to be it will be – without efforts, without fears, without anxious overthinking, without trying.
The right person, the right opportunity will just pop out of nowhere and they will catch you off guard, wiping away all the sadness of failed relationships and lost chances and they will heal you, and you will finally understand why it never worked out with anyone else.
You will finally realize that all that rushing and nagging and overthinking and analyzing, all that wishful thinking, the false hope, the pain of lost and detached friendships and unreciprocated feelings…
no longer matters. Like it never happened.
Life is about destiny, and I firmly believe in that.
What Is Meant To Be Will Be
I can proudly say that I am a fighter. I have clear goals and work hard to achieve them. I accept the challenges and fight the obstacles and problems life sends my way.
I can’t stand when things don’t happen as I plan so I try hard to make them right. I get sad when my plans fail and my dreams don’t come true. I get nervous when I feel like I’m losing control over my life.
But I’m willing to fight every battle I have to so as to get where I want to be in life. I’m willing to oppose anyone and anything who will try to stand in the way to my happiness and success.
I’m willing and ready to stand up every time I fail.
Because I’ve learned that what is meant to be mine, will find its way to me.
God finds his way to me and I no longer worry when things go down. I smile and wait because a brighter day will dawn at my curtained window. I know it.
What’s supposed to happen to me, will happen – I don’t have to force it.
Because that’s life. Sometimes it all falls into place and other times, nothing makes sense. Life doesn’t always go the way we plan.
We’ll be with someone and think he/she is the love of our life, our forever person, and then we’ll helplessly watch the relationship fall apart. We’ll pursue the career we’ve always hoped for, and then one day we’ll realize that’s not what we really want and need.
We’ll have friends and think they’re the most loyal and supportive and before we know it, they’ll stab us in the back the moment we turn around. We’ll fulfill our highest goals and wildest dreams, and then fall down.
And in all of those moments, we’ll rack our brains trying to figure out why bad things happen to us. We’ll wonder what we’ve done to deserve all that disappointment, sadness, and anguish. We’ll have many questions, but unfortunately, we won’t have the answer to each and every one of them.
Because that’s how life works. We can’t predict what tomorrow will bring to us and we definitely can’t control it. We won’t always understand what’s happening. We won’t always know what choices and decisions to make and where we should go. We won’t always know what’s the right thing to do and what’s ours to keep. And what we should actually do is trust.
What’s meant to be will be yours just trust the Universe, trust God, and trust yourself.
What’s meant to be will be – when you least expect it.
That’s life–a belated birthday present, an unexpected summer holiday in October.
Life is what happens to us when we loosen up and stop chasing careers, people, fame, or social statuses.
Life happens when we stop expecting it to happen, and then, just like that, the strangest, yet most beautiful things start happening. Out of the blue. Without stressing and pre-planning.
If it is meant to be ours, it will come to us, sooner or later. We’ll part from our partner because there’s someone better out there waiting for us to meet them. We’ll quit our job because new, better opportunities lie ahead of us. Some decisions will prove wrong because we’re supposed to make new ones that will benefit us on both personal and professional levels.
And when these things happen, we might feel scared, angry, disappointed, or sad. We might feel like screaming or crying. We might doubt ourselves and everything and everyone around us. We might feel like our entire world is crumbling in front of our eyes.
But what we need to understand is that sometimes what we hold on too tight falls apart so that something better can come to us. Sometimes some people leave us so that others who are worthy of our love come into our life.
You need to remember that what’s meant to be yours will find its way to you. You don’t need to over think and rack your brains worrying whether you have done something wrong and whether your prayers will be heard. You don’t need to worry and despair.
You Don’t Have to Force Anything
You don’t have to chase things that are not meant for you. You don’t have to cling to people who are supposed to leave.
You have to remember that you’re worthy and deserving of all the good things life has to offer.
You have to remember that life will not always go according to your plans, but you have to keep believing that you’ll find what you’ve been always searching for.
You have to keep believing and never let any obstacle or change, no matter if it’s small or big, wreck your hopes. Stay blessed by knowing that things will fall in your lap, but only when you are ready to appreciate their beauty.
Happiness happens when we learn how to value it.
Only, we cannot value our blessings without first getting a taste of that bitter hell that threatens to redefine our understanding of the world and twist it upside down.
It is the only way–the only bridge to estimating happiness and valuing it.
What’s meant to be yours will come to you at the right timing. It’ll come when you’re READY to receive it. It’s all part of a bigger plan – one that was meant to be for YOU, remember, but you will realize it in retrospect.
