A girl with too many thoughts...

Things Will Work Out...

A-level results day is fast approaching (only one more day to go, ahh!) and it has got me thinking...a lot. I've probably been thinking about it a little too much, actually. In fact, this one day has completely taken over my life recently. I'm becoming increasingly impatient waiting - I just wish it would hurry up!

Anyway...something that I have been constantly reminded of in this past week by various different people in my life; whether that is my Mum, my therapist or my friends; is that whatever the outcome on results day, things will work out for the best eventually. And the more I think about it, the more true this becomes.

Even if I don't get the results that I want and I don't get into my firm choice University, perhaps there's a reason for this. Perhaps things will work out better for me as a result. Maybe I'll go to my second choice University instead and really love it there. Maybe if I'd gone to my first choice, I wouldn't have enjoyed it as much. Maybe I'll go elsewhere and meet somebody down the line who becomes really important in my life, who knows?

The moral of this story is that sometimes, we might be disappointed about the outcome of a situation. We may feel like it is the end of the world. But in reality, it could turn out to be the better option for us - we just don't know it yet. We can't possibly know the reason behind everything that happens to us and we certainly cannot predict the future. There could be a reason for not getting a certain job or getting into a certain University - a reason which we may not be aware of at the time.

I know it can be disappointing when something doesn't work out the way that you want it to, the way you had imagined. It can be a major setback for you. However, you must remember that whatever the circumstance, life goes on regardless. Things work themselves out because they have to, and they inevitably do.

Try to let go of that disappointment if something doesn't go ahead as planned. I know this is easier said than done, but instead try focusing on how you can progress from here. You are in this situation whether you like it or not. The only thing you can do is move forward, to make the best out of it that you possibly can.

I feel like I'm going to have remind myself of this, this time on Thursday when I am crying into my bowl of cereal because I didn't get into the University that I wanted or come out with the grades that I had hoped for (positive thinking as per usual). Nonetheless, what will be will be and I must learn to accept that and carry on moving forwards, whatever happens.
