If you were to change any event in that sequence, I believe the entire sequence would be different. I do not believe I would be who I am today. I would not have met some of my favorite people. I would not have learned more about who I am, what I can do, and what I want in life. And I certainly would not have spent my Wednesday evening enjoying the company of some people I have built relationships with over the past seven summers.
Times are not always easy, but I’m incredibly thankful things worked out the way they did. An incredible sense of peace fills you when you realize you are exactly where you should be at a given moment.
Thank you, God, Universe, and associates.
And good night.
