things do happen for a reason...

... i think so.  i would like to think so.  or else it would be really difficult to get through at times like these.

at least at times when i can't figure out why certain things happened or when things seem to be so unfair, i tend to feel better if i think there is a greater reason behind all these....

sometimes i wonder why certain people have all the luck in the world whilst some seem to have to struggle badly to just barely manage to get by each day. and yes, i sometimes think life is unfair.  i know it is negative energy but it's hard not to think like this.

last sunday, the movie Forrest Gump was being showed on TV again.  it's not the first time i watched it but every time i watch it, there are certain scenes that would either make my eyes teary or give me a lump in the throat.  it's a meaningful movie to me. there are a few liners which i tell myself to remember.  though i can't remember the exact words, one of the liners was at the scene when Forrest's mother is dying and she tried to explain to Forrest about life and death, it goes something like this: "you've got to live the best out of what is given to you"....  surely Forrest did.

i've got to live the best out of what is given to me.  though there are many things that i dislike and complain about myself and about my life, these things happened for a reason.  maybe they are for me to learn to overcome them or to live in peace with them, so that i can grow into a better person, so that i can be more forgiving, so that i can take care of and love the people around me more....  and to move on with life.

Agreed, I understand we will be a better person thru experience but sometimes still think why do I need to learn it in a hard way...

life might seem not fair sometimes, but one can be happy if think on the bright side...and the people you think are lucky and have it all might not be half as happy with life as you!! you never know...
