Regardless of what happens, it is meant to be.

Although I have quite a bit of control over my life, I realize that sometimes things just happen. Unexpected things pop up in a day. Unwanted events occur without warning.

I truly believe that all of these occurrences, positive and otherwise, are meant to be.

In challenging times, I remind myself that I still have quite a bit of say in what takes place in my life. I charge forward and do what I can to overcome the challenge and continue to create the life of my dreams.

I try to look at unexpected events as adventures.

I learn something new and change my way of thinking when something unplanned takes place. At those times, I comfort myself with thoughts about how the situation is as it should be.

Today, I intend to renew my efforts to accept whatever happens. “If it happens, then it is meant to be” is my new mantra. I can provide the reassurance I need to accept the curve balls life throws me. I tell myself that I am okay with fate.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Do I believe in fate? Why or why not?
2. Have I depended on fate too much or do I step up to take power over my own life in whatever ways I can?
3. When it is necessary, can I tell myself that something was meant to be and then move on in my life?
