Everything Happens For A Reason
Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there…to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be but you lock eyes with them, you know that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.
Sometimes things happen to you and, at the time, it may seem horrible, painful and unfair but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would never realize your potential, strength, will power or heart. Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of luck, illness or love. Lost moments of true greatnes and sheet stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests life would be like a smoothly paved straight and flat road to no where - safe and dull but utterly pointless. The people you meet affect your life. The successes and downfalls that you experience help create whom you are and the bad experiences should be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most important.
If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart forgive them because they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart to. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally not only because they love you but because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things. Make every day count. Appreciate everything for you may never experience it again. Talk to people you have never talked to before and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself for if you don't believe in yourself no one will believe in you.
Create your own life and then go out and live it.
