I really do believe that everything happens for a reason. And everything that doesn’t happen, doesn’t happen for a reason. I believe in fate. I believe in destiny. Some people think how can I be so carefree, and not give a damn about so many things in life. Well it’s not that I don’t care, it’s that I believe it doesn’t matter if I care or not. If I worry about my job, my family, my friends, my life, does it mean it will turn out better than if I don’t worry about it? If I don’t go traveling, don’t scuba dive, don’t do any commonly regarded somewhat risky activity, does it mean the chance of accidents happening will be less? No. Because what’s meant to happen, will happen. Some people were probably at home, being safe, or worrying about their job, thinking about their bills, when an earthquake and a tsunami hit and buried them alive. So what’s the point of worrying and playing it safe?Live your life. Do more, plan less. Stop thinking and start doing. Yes it’s lame and cliche, but how many people actually DO it? Don’t live your lives with regrets, anything you do you should not regret because even if the result is not something you are happy with, there’s always a lesson learnt from it. What actually prompted this post is a water bottle. Since India I’ve been looking for a water bottle. Sounds like an easy task, but somehow I never found the water bottle that I want since February! In these 6 months I accumulated scarves, pants, rings, snorkel, mask, macbook… But a water bottle? And trust me, I looked HARD. But today I found the perfect one, it’s a SIGG water bottle in beige, with the Surya Namaskara (sun salutation) yoga sequence all around it. It’s the perfect bottle for me. So it wasn’t me who was being picky that’s why I couldn’t find myself a water bottle, it was the universe telling me that the perfect bottle was waiting for me at the Hong Kong airport. Everything happens for a reason.
