Yes I know this is a very popular quote. BUT I really do believe things like this. I am a strong believer that everything happens for a reason. For example if something upsetting happens you may not be happy about it or understand why but I think that something good comes out of everything. I am a sophomore in the theatre department and for myself I try to make myself believe this. I do this because the career that I am choosing is very hard on a person. Basically, I am going into multiple auditions everyday for numerous people. Then after all that hard work I could end up not getting a part in that show. Then I let myself be bummed out for a day and after that I move on and try to see the brighter sides of things. If you can’t tell, I try to be optimistic. Thinking like this is really helpful for yourself it puts you in a better mind set about everything and it makes you more resilient. So next time something frustrating happens, try to think that everything happens for a reason, and I promise you it will help and put you in a better mind set for the rest of your day. When one door closes another door opens right? Right!
