Sometimes people come into your life and you come to realize that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you 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 (possibly your roommate, neighbor,co-worker, long-lost friend, lover or even a complete stranger.), but when you lock eyes with them, you know in an instant that they will affect your life in some profound way.
And 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 have never realized your potential, strengh, willpower or heart. Everythings happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness, injury, love, brilliant achievements, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.
The people you meet who affect you life, and the success and downfalls you experienced, help to creat who you are and who you become. Even the bad experiences can be learnt from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones. If some one hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heat, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautions when you open your heart. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things. Make everyday count. Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and actuatlly listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold you head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourseld, for if you don’t believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you.
You can make of your life anything your wish. Creat your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets. Most importantly, if you love someone tell him or her, for you never know what tomorrow may have in store.
