Think about it, you’re reading a book or writing a paper and you look at a word and after a while, it doesn’t look like a word anymore. Just a bunch of letters thrown randomly together. You start to think. You know that these letters make a word, but when you really look at it, it just looks so weird. Like there’s no way that these letters could mean anything at all.
Sometimes, life can feel that way. Like all we are is just a bunch of random events thrown together with no meaning at all. The things that happen to us in our lives, or the things that we have done are all just separate events. We know that our lives must have some sort of meaning, but everything is so random and thrown together and confusing. Life doesn’t flow together like we think that it should. It all seems so meaningless and separate. Like there’s no point to this day to day life that we’re living. It’s not going to go anywhere. That it will just go on and on and on and on.
Now, when you look back at the letters on the page, you eventually think about it and see the true meaning of the word again. It’s recognizable again. You see the word as a whole, not just all of the random letters. This word really does mean something. The letters may be randomly thrown together, but together, they have meaning.
Same goes with our lives. The things that happen may feel meaningless and random sometimes. You might get caught up in routine so much that you begin to lose focus and find it difficult to even recognize yourself anymore. But through all of that, you’re still there. Your life still has meaning even if you can’t see it. And at some point, you’ll look back at all of these random events you’re living right now and see that it all adds up. They might be a bunch of random events, but if you look at life as a whole, you’ll see that the trials and triumphs of today make you into who you’re going to be tomorrow and for the rest of you life.
Even looking back to where you were a couple of years ago and seeing how much has changed. How much you have changed, how much the way you look at life has changed, how much the people in your lives have changed. You might be in a completely different spot than you were back then. You’re seeing it as a whole, but when you were living in that time, it was all separate and random.
Give it time and a little patience, and someday, you’ll see that while your life might be a bunch of random letters, if you look back at the whole, they spell something beautiful.
