Subscribing to the notion that things happen for a reason does not require belief in a higher power- just the interconnectedness of people and events. We spend our lives trying to figure it all out, bouncing into each other and off the walls, grabbing at whatever we can hold on to, and then one day it just makes sense. You glimpse the big picture, if only for a moment, and see that we are all links in a beautiful chain, glittering diamonds somehow simultaneously discrete and indistinguishable. And it’s that moment your high score no longer matters, you stop worrying how many lives you’ve got left, and live them.
