I had an appointment this morning, nothing new with that but it’d been a while since I’d been to this particular clinic.
Making light conversation with the Receptionist and discussing what I’d been through she said the old adage, “Well everything happens for a reason.”.
I say BULLSH*T.
BTW: Why are all medical receptionists called Sheryl, Cheryl, Beverly, Robyn or Julie?
Anyhoo, I think there’s a better way of looking at it.
Everything happens, then you make the reasons.
Some people need to find a reason to satisfy themselves. Some people find a reason to make peace. Some people find a reason to justify their issue. Some people blame karma, some people blame God and some people don’t give things a second thought.
Some people think a pair of ah-mazing shoes on sale is a reason to buy them. Fair point really, you’re probably going to NEED them in the next 18 months.
I don’t believe that there’s reason for MS, why some people get it and some don’t and I don’t and won’t know why I was one of the “chosen ones”.
Even if there was a known cause, there’s still no reason for it even to exist. But it does.
Much the same, there’s no reason for cancer, poverty, shootings, suicide, child fatalities…
I also think that there’s no reason for Mangos, but that’s another story.
Some things just are and some things just happen. Sad but true.
Or is their reason in just the good stuff?
Family, friends and for me watching an episode of 60 Minutes some 14 months ago.
Even if you struggle to find a reason and need one, change your view and look for the helpers.
