Sometimes people come into our life and we know right away that they were meant to be
there… to serve some sort of purpose, teach us a lesson or help figure out who we are or who we want to become.
We never know who these people may be, but when we lock eyes with them, we know that very moment that they will affect our life in some profound way. And sometimes things happen to us at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection we realize that without overcoming those obstacles we would have never realized our potential, strength, will power or heart.
Everything happens for a reason...
Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness,injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of our soul. Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.
The people we meet affect our life.....
The successes and downfalls that we experience can create who we are, and the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones.
If someone hurts us, betrays us or breaks our heart, forgive them because they have helped us learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom we open our heart to. If someone loves us, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love us but because they are teaching us to love and open our heart and eyes to little things.
Make every day count...
Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that we possibly can, for we may never be able to experience it again. Hold our head up because we have every right to.
Tell ourself we are a great individual and believe in ourself. For if we don't believe in ourself, no one else will believe in us. Create our own life and then go out and live it.
