Nearly anyone you ask would agree with the premise in my post title, but I honestly and wholeheartedly believe it, in every aspect of my life. I’ve always assumed I believed it, but it’s been just recently that I’ve actually started seeing it clearly. Some of the biggest things that happened to me in the last year, things that had me literally asking “Why?!”, suddenly became clear. And that’s such a relief. Now, as soon as something happens that I don’t understand or that hurts, I tell myself that someday – maybe a week, maybe a month, maybe years – someday, I will realize why it happened and why it was actually for my good. It doesn’t stop the bad thing from hurting, but it promises relief, it promises answers. And sometimes, when the answers don’t come, you just have to trust that they are there even if you can’t see them. Believing that makes life, not easier, but easier to bear.
I wore this outfit to a play that I went to see with some friends. The skirt is actually a dress, and because it’s shorter and more form-fitting that most of the things I wear, I decided to balance that out with a over-sized button-down.
