Things just happen

I was talking to a complete stranger today and as part of my job, I was asking her about her areas of strength in her personality and others that need more growth. She said that her greatest strength is to try to always be positive. Right there and then, she seemed as if she was looking right through me when she said that things just happen and sometimes there is nothing that you can do about them. All you can do though is to simply move on. I was taken aback for a second. The thought that haunted me was “how did she know”? How did that total stranger answer the question that kept me sleepless for a whole night? Her words just hit the right spot and seemed as God-sent at that very moment. God knows I was trying so hard to understand, give excuses, forgive and swallow a bitter incident when the obvious was there all along.
