Things Happen for a Reason
Things always happen for a reason. Has anything bad or good ever happened to you, and you ask yourself, “Why me”? I have many times. As time goes by with experiences, I am coming to believe things do happen for a reason. Though at times, it seems unclear right away; it usually will become clear in time. For example, how I ended up at college. First, in high school, I hated it, and I used to think, if I ever get out of here, I’ll never come back!! Therefore, I did not prepare for college at all, so I did what I had to do to get out. Now it is 26 years later, and suddenly, out of the blue, totally unexpected, I lost my job; it was going out of state. I cried! Total shock!! What am I going to do now? Next, I had the terrible deed of telling my husband and family, which was not as bad as I thought it would be. They were very supportive. At strong encouragement of my husband and family, I decided go back to school. I was shocked at the suggestion” OMG!” What a thought. So I started weighing my options. College was looking better and better when I considered the alternatives. Next, I found out that I could draw unemployment and go to school, and I also qualified for a full scholarship. Finally, ok so I qualify. When does school start? Am I too late? No, I have three more weeks! What timing! Every excuse I could come up with was headed off. The desire, I must have to admit, to become a nurse was becoming overwhelming. I hated to lose my job, but given all the circumstances, the timing, you have to admit, maybe things do happen for a reason so that something good my come out of something bad. What do you think?
