It happens for a reason and that too a good one

Last month has been a different one for me. Three things happened for me and all those were that are completely against my first nature.:

  1. I took a road-trip to Wisconsin, Chicago and Indiana all by myself. For someone who never goes alone anywhere it was a big deal. People close to me would know that I don’t like to travel much let alone go some place all by myself. This was a trip that happened all of a sudden and in the end it was a one to remember. When I started the trip I did not realize that I would be seeing one of the most amazing things I have ever heard of or seen – The House on the Rock. As the trip ended, I did realize that it was for the good;
  2. A couple of weeks after that, I went on another road-trip to Mt. Rushmore and neighboring areas. This trip I guess was another one out of impulse. I have not yet written about it, but in this trip I did drive though the most beautiful country side ever. I never thought I would do it and thought that my best would be the drive from house on the rock to Plymouth a few weeks earlier. But, this was even better (I will write about this soon);
  3. Another week gone by and I had yet another string of events on the day of travel back to India.

This is not the first time that things have happened around me that I can not explain. While I have a strong belief in “the choices we make are the basis of what happens with us”; yet there are several times where I just can’t explain why it happened. Like today, when I had to cancel my plans, I lost my passport only to find it 30 minutes later. I never wanted any of that to happen yet it all that happened.

I am still trying to understand the events and decipher the reasons behind all of it. I can not  decipher any of that until next few days till the time I reach home safely and I am with my family or till the time I get my bags. The question arises at the point when all of it has happened as it should have happened – “Why did it all happened in a different way if the result was the same?”. Unless, something changes during next 36-40 hours.

I just spent last 5 minutes thinking what to write next and I came up blank – I just don’t know how to think on this. I just am blank on this. I just feel – that things happen for a reason and that too a good one. Few more hours to find the reason behind all this and realize what was good in that.

  1. In last few hours as I thought about the chain of events a pressing question was – Why did I need to spend one more day in Plymouth. And the answer is to finish my business with this place –
    – I was taking the US based phone with me which I should have not. I was doing this just to safe if I stayed over in Chicago (I can give this back to Sahil tomorrow when I leave)
    – I left some stickers back in the apartment which I would get in October. Now, I can take them with me
    – Aum and Bharti had invited me to their house before leaving which I was unable to. I went to their place today and Bharti said – it was due and you have to come
    – I was leaving behind a bag that we borrowed from Rakhi bhabhi; I think I am now going to take if back with me tomorrow. Make sure no outstanding debts. And with that I can take back some of my clothes
    – I blogged about something that I have been thinking about for a lot time. I just never had the time or courage to do it. Events today brought a flurry of thoughts and it led to writing some of those down
    – Closing my Car Insurance policy, and getting some refund back. Once in India it would have got delayed by at least a week and I would have payed up an extra $25 on that
    – Sahil lost the Costco cash card and I gave him some details on my card that can help him finding the lost car

    That is a list I would have not done if I left today. I guess there is a reason. Lets see if anything else happens – good or bad.
