Everything Happens for a Reason

"Everything happens for a reason."

"In the end, everything works out."

"This is just how it was meant to be."



I'm getting kind of tired of these stock phrases being slung my way for the last few weeks since my announcement that I was departing Starbucks. Mostly because I don't believe that my life is just going to fall into place around me because it is "meant" to happen a certain way. I have to make choices. I have to cultivate a fulfilling and meaningful life. I have to drive my own destiny.

Be with somebody who makes you happy.
I definitely stole this from a facebook friend's post.
