Trust That Everything Happens For A Reason

A reminder of why we make mistakes...

Trust That Everything Happens For A Reason
Rachel Leach

It might be the what ifs, the tears, the hard feelings that show when something happens.

But sometimes it’s not your fault right?

Isn’t there that saying that everything happens for a reason? Because I believe it does, and so should you.

We live our days with routine: go to school, complete some homework, take a test, write a paper, contemplate why we’re in college and then work our butts off to get a degree. We think we know what’s best for ourselves; we think we know what we want. We hope that all of our work will pay off in the future when we land our dream jobs. But what we don’t think about is WHY certain things happened and how it’s going to effect our lives.

If everything happens for a reason, then making mistakes isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it’s just something that happens and then we learn to move on with our lives. Moving on might be hard; it might be emotionally stressful and exhausting, but we somehow always make it through those tough situations.

The reason that everything happens for a reason is because we let it. We let ourselves make mistakes and we let ourselves learn from them. We let ourselves cope with the good/bad outcomes. We let our minds take over thinking they know what’s best for us. We let ourselves become emotionally upset and unstable. We let ourselves cry over stupid things. We let ourselves believe that everything happens for a reason. We let ourselves believe in the truth.

Life is a hard battle that we fight. Sometimes it might go perfect and smooth without a bump in the road. But sometimes we are stuck at crossroads deciding what to do next.

Maybe there’s a really good reason why we decided to go left instead of right. Maybe there’s a really good reason as to why we didn’t go forward and instead took one step back.

Maybe all the things we have learned so far in our lives are preparing us for what lies ahead.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
