Why There’s No Such Thing as an Accidental Accident
All of us, at some point in our lives, have experienced something that wasn’t really planned or expected. To some, that point might be right now. You may be recovering from an injury or getting back on your feet after facing a problem or crisis; whatever the case, things happen that change your life forever. And while you may think that it’s actually just because of pure chance or coincidence, I’m here to tell you that it’s not.
As you probably know, I broke my ankle back in October 2012 (here’s the story). It was a very tough time of my life. I had to hear things such as my ankle never being functional for running (and even walking) on uneven surfaces again, among other shocking and depressing prognoses. And in that situation, all I kept thinking about was, “Why? Why did this have to happen to me?”
I was so focused on the moment and on the accident itself that I failed to realize the one thing that is true for everyone in every kind of situation, and that was: everything happens for a reason.
There’s no such thing as an “accidental accident”.
Every situation you’ve been in (or will experience) has some deeper meaning or reason behind it, but when you’re in that moment, it’s hard to see that. Even before something happens, there are all these messages and signs that point to that moment, and when we choose to ignore those, there are always consequences – consequences that make us really think about the way we approach our lives and the things that we need to change in order to be better.
But don’t fret – even if you are in such a situation right now, you may not recognize this deeper reason right away. It takes time – weeks, months, and maybe even years for something so deep and so essential to your life to manifest itself. You just have to be open-minded and see the situation as a wake-up call and as an opportunity to turn things around. In my case, yes, I fractured my ankle and spent years recovering, but now I’m more passionate about serving others than before. If I didn’t have that accident, I wouldn’t be talking to you about this today and sharing my story and everything I know with all the people who seek guidance. For me, that was the deeper reason, the bigger picture behind my accident.
