Everything happens for a reason…But you need a reason for everything to happen.
What I mean by this is that only after you’ve decided to manifest your passion project, that’s when you’ll start affirming everything happening to you as evidence supporting your decision. You’ll suddenly see “signs”, “twists of fate” or “things falling into place.” Even events you might previously have seen as roadblocks or obstacles, you’ll now see in a different light.
As the Stoics and other great thinkers like Viktor Frankl remind us, what makes us uniquely human is our ability to derive meaning from our circumstances. We don’t get to choose what happens to us, but we do get to choose the reason.
Making your art is a great choice.
