Things happening “for” me

I have just heard news that create some uncertainty around a major project of mine (= the editor working on my book just left suddenly with no warning).

Pre-Work I would have worried and fretted all over myself but now I’m just trying on thoughts to see which would serve me.

One that came to mind was “everything happens for me” and I got curious about what’s implied by it precisely.

Is it that ultimately every life situation or circumstance is part of our own life path and an opportunity to grow and learn?

I.e. even if the new editor throws what I’ve done down the toilet and wants me to start over from scratch, it will all be for my own good in the end? 🙂
