Sometimes You Just Need To Accept That It Was All Meant To Be

Ali, please don’t pull out the plant, actually don’t even touch it, just sing to it, but don’t touch, ok!“ I warned this little girl after she pulled out one stalk of sunflower and made a little mess in our balcony garden.

Ok!” she answered, but then she asked “Why?

There is no ”Why” for that, it just don’t, sometimes there is no reason for doing  or not doing something, it just no or can not, sometimes there is no real reason for something, it just means don’t do it”. All of sudden a long answered came out of the mouth without passing through my brain.

There was no response from Ali. She just went away like that without even noticed by me and as I stood there frozen. Hmmm.. Not really frozen though. It was just that my body stopped, but my brain was rolling back what just happened a few minutes before.

“Sometimes there was no reason for something to be happening, it just meant to be like that”

As I took a chair and I began to sit on it.  The question “Is it?” passed through my mind. Is it really no reason for something happening? As I have known for a long time, there always a reason for something even just a single little thing.


Friends of mine would say this to me “things happen to envelope other things”. It means everything that took it takes place in our life always have a connection with other things in our life. People tend to question things that happened or are happening in their life. “Why did that that happen or why is this happening” what’s the reason and  so many other questions. I’m not against to those who doing things or asking such a question, but instead of asking like I used to do back then, why we don’t try to adjust to the things that happened  around us and live for today not in the past.

We tend to make things adjust to fit our lives, but in the end, we question why and why to those matters. When we realized we have spent a lot of time doing  nothing. If things happen because was meant to happen so it’s our part to adjust to those things and make it work, just relax and along with our lives. I think it would be a lot easier for us to understand life, don’t you think?
