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
.....to teach a lesson,
....or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become.
 

You never know who these people may be...a roommate, friend, neighbour, professor, child, teacher or even a complete stranger, but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.

 

Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful and unfair at first, but in reflection, you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would not have realized your strength, potential, willpower or heart.
Nothing happens by chance or means of good luck.  Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, flat road to nowhere...safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.

 

People who you meet and who affect your life, and the successes and downfalls you experience, help to create who you are and who you become.  The bad experiences are the most valuable because it is often from them that we learn the most.  Hurt, betrayal, loss, sadness...these are the great builders of character.   Only those who have hurt and lost or have been sad and disappointment know how to truly comfort and forgive another in the same circumstances.  Consider yourself blessed!

 

Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it whatever you can...it may not come your way again.  You may not have the chance to share, talk, listen, dream, love, teach, or enjoy that moment again.

 

Believe in yourself and hold your head up.
Create your own life and live it with no regrets.
Learn a new lesson every day.
Tell someone you love them.
Live with no regrets.

 

Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.  Was it worth it?
