Things Happen for a Reason

I’m always a person who believes that things happen for a reason, whether good or bad.  I believe that each and every person is destined for great things and that we just have to have faith and seek them out.  Sometimes we use all the excuses in the world because of the fear of stepping out and just going after our dream.  We believe that we have so much to lose if we do when in reality we have a lot more to lose if we don’t.  At times we need that hard push because we neglected the writings on the wall.  Well I’m here to say I got my hard push on Friday, when my employer laid me off.  At first I was upset because I wasn’t prepared.  However, after talking to my family and friends I realized it’s probably going to be the best thing that has ever happened to me.  Although I have a sense of worry I’m learning that worry and faith do not go hand in hand.  The crazy economic downturn has made me realize that we all need to pay attention and re-prioritize; we need to put our families and ourselves first.  I read an article over the weekend called “The Top 10 Reasons to Love a Recession,” and one of them was the chance for business opportunities.  What does Disney, HP and Microsoft all have in common?  Well, besides for being power player companies, these three companies along with 30 others were all started in economic downturns.  Now my question for you is, are you willing to step out on faith?
