I don't believe that events in life happen randomly. I believe that you meet the people you meet, you end up in places you end up, you work at the job you work for a reason. Each event, each person, each job is a stone in the staircase of your life. They are all leading somewhere. Where? That I'm not sure. But what I am sure of is that everything happens for a reason.
I made the decision to attend Charlotte University instead of Wilmington. Had I left for Wilmington I may never have met Evelina. I started my blog as a way to vent. My blog actually led me to my job at Gatehouse; a job that I desperately needed after I closed my business. Multiple sclerosis seemed like it was the worst thing that could have happened to me. But once I accepted my reality I found a brand new perspective and appreciation for life that I had never known before.
Did all of these things happen completely randomly? Is my life the result of happenstance? I don't believe so. If you don't believe in a higher power, then I understand that this might be lost on you. But for me life has a way of always working out.
