Even if you don’t understand it, everything makes sense.
Failures make sense. Disagreements make sense. The girl who shoves the coffee in your face, the man who cuts you off in traffic…Achieving good grades and feeling positive about the rain..
Everything makes sense.
You see, we are all human and subject to feelings and emotions, to things that we aren’t always the best at controlling. In fact, the majority of us are awful at keeping our temper under wrap, our selfishness at bay. We feel things even when we don’t want to feel things. They are at an intensity that we don’t want them to be at. We don’t want to care about certain things in life, but we do. We are affected by everything that happens to us. And we don’t even know it.
We don’t take a lot of time to sit down and figure out why we snapped at the lady in drive thru or why we decided to spend one hundred dollars too much on a pair of one hundred dollar shoes. If we stopped to think about the reasons for all our actions, we’d be stopped for a very long time. Our life would be on pause and then we would have to think about the reason for that pause and then we’d be so paused that life would be no timeline at all. Just a dot.
Don’t be a dot.
But don’t get so erratic with life that you’re running on steam, wondering why the things are the way they are.
We aren’t going to make sense of everything in life. But when we understand that we’re not going to, but that everything does, we’re going to be a timeline of happy.
And that’s worth crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s.
For whatever the reason that makes sense.
