Sometimes people came into our life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach us a lesson, or to help us to figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be, 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 without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realize your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.

Everything happens for a reason. 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 the 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 and affect your life, and the success and downfalls you experience, help you create who you are and who you become. Even the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they can probably the most poignant and important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart… forgive them, for they helped you learned about trust and the importance of being cautious to when to 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 not to open your heart to things. Make everyday count.

Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possible can, for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people that you have never talked 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 that you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t, it will be hard for others to believe in you. You can make of your life anything you wish.

Create your own life and then go out and live with absolutely no regrets. 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 and everyday.
