First I'd like to warn you that today's post will be shorter and a little more somber than usual. And that's because last night I got some very upsetting news.
My Granddad past away yesterday. He had cancer and had recently gotten extremely sick. Of course it's sad, and I'm going to miss him very much, but it's nice to know he is in a better place now. Seventeen years ago, the doctors gave him only five years to live. Twelve years ago I would have too young to even remember him very well and my little brother wouldn't even have been born yet. And so I am extremely thankful that he had the chance to see me grow up, and to know my brother and his four other beautiful grandchildren. Rest in peace, Granddad. You will be missed <3
In case your wondering why I'm telling strangers I only know through the internet this very personal information, well, it's because I needed to get it off my chest. I haven't even told my friends yet. I'm just not good with ... confrontation. And I guess it's way easier for me to type things onto a computer screen than to actually tell people face to face. I will get there... eventually.
What is your take on the belief that everything happens for a reason? Personally, I strongly believe this. Yes, it is a very optimistic view on life, but I like having faith that everything will work out in the end. Now I know some people oppose this view by saying that this belief represses free choice. However, I don't feel that thinking everything happens for a reason means you don't have to make choices. It's a very debatable topic. Post your thoughts below because I'd love to hear them!
