You are ... #atozchallenge letter Y @AprilA2Z

My theme for the 2017 AtoZ Challenge is "Daily Thoughts".

Each day I will post a thought that comes to mind. The first word of the thought will correspond with the letter of the day.

Usually I write about one thought, today I'll add a few and let you ponder over them.

So here is my thought for the letter Y

in my garden

You are exactly where you are meant to be

These are words someone said to me a long time ago. Ever since then I have pondered on these and tried to make some sense of it. After all if you are at a point in time where life is humming these words are joyful, if however you are at a point in time when life isn't that great, then what? Life is meant to be down in the dumps?

I can tell you now that at that point in time when those words were said to me, my life was down in the dumps so it certainly didn't make me feel good. But it was a catalyst to make a change in my life.

So perhaps those not so good moments are meant to be so that we can change direction and take life on to a point where it is in tune with the Universal flow, where life hums, where life is joy.

And if life didn't have the downs, how would we enjoy the highs? How would we learn to face challenges and grow?

So I conclude that the downs are required in life and that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

Here's a poem I wrote sometime ago called Lost and Found. This was written at the point where I decided that the downs in my life were moments of great change and the start of the joy and peace in my life.

Life you threw me all askew
In despair I travelled trudging on
Ignorant of  jewels yet to be born
Of experiences wonderful and new

I lost it all, those material things
I thought that I had lost my soul
Then Lord you held me, made me whole
And Your flute, it brought me joy and wings

  1. Agree with you. I wouldnt like to hear 'You are exactly where you are meant to be' when I am down. But yes, these tough and challenging times are stepping stones to success and good times I believe, there's a reason for everything! So yes, accept the good and the bad times with a smile.

  2. Agree Suzy - life keeps you down and it hurts but when you get up from there and reach right back up, thats when you realise why you were down!!!

  3. We all want life to be fun and easy don't we, but the hard times are what burn off the dross and refine us - we wouldn't be who we are today without them. Lovely to have met you through the AtoZ and I don't know about you, but I'll be very happy to not be posting every day anymore!

  4. Very thought provoking post, Suzy. I have read that quote too about being right where we should be and often wondered about it. It's reassuring on the one hand and depressing on the other. Knowing and accepting that bad times come sure does help make them easier to get through. I used to think it meant I was a loser and a failure but now I see that the bad stuff comes to everyone now and then. It usually passes eventually and then I'm that much stronger and wiser because of going through it.

  5. I've heard of this quote too. And I agree with it. We are where we are because there are lessons that we can learn from that situations.
