come into your life and you know right away that they were
meant to be there. You never know who these people may be
(possibly your roommate, neighbor, professor, long lost/new
found friend, lover, or even a complete stranger), but when
you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment 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,
strength, willpower, 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 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 your life, and the success and downfalls you
experience, help to create who you are and who you become.
Even the bad experiences
can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant
and important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you, or
breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you
learn about trust and the importance of being cautious as
to 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 every day 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 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, it will be hard for others to believe
in you. You can make of your life anything you wish. Most
importantly, if you love someone tell them, for you never
know what tomorrow may have in store. And learn a lesson in
life each day you live.
Today is the tomorrow
you were worried about yesterday. Was it worth it? Expect
your every need to be met, expect the answer to every problem,
expect abundance on every level, expect to grow spiritually.
