Somehow, Someway (#223)

My summer, similar to my suitcase….somehow, someway, it worked out. I couldn’t have imagined this would be how my summer would pan out but I’m grateful it did.

There was no way I thought I was going to be able to fit everything in my suitcase but again, I’m grateful it did.

This silly analogy often works on a much larger scale in life. The universe is unpredictable but with gratitude and positivity, it always works out the way it’s supposed to. We’re exactly where we’re supposed to be in life and for that reason we can be grateful.
