    People Do Come Into Our Lives For A Reason

    Sometimes, we don't know why they come into and OUT OF our lives, and sometimes we don't find out until many years later when we can look back and finally see the whole painting, instead of just a few pixels. These moments are precious and enlightening and fill you with great...

    I have to believe that how we met,

    why we met was intentional by someone, somewhere for some reason. I can't explain why I love you. Sometimes I don't want to love you but I still do. I know you love me back but in your guarded heart way. I know you don't say things just to make me feel good... ugh MEN. smile. I...

    Maybe not in a cosmic way,

    but simply because we recognize or see something in them that we are longing for. It can be kindness, wisdom, humour, love or whatever else we are yearning to find and can see glimpses of in them. Sometimes they fulfill that need and move on, sometimes we discover we were wrong...

    People come into your life

    for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person. When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty; to provide you...

    The Beggar and the Thief.

    ... "Thief of all my thoughts," said he, "Will you ever release me? Do not, ever, please I beg- For if you do, I'll break your leg!" He was teasing me, I knew-- I shall never say "adieu!" But this instead I said to him, "The chance of that would be quite slim!" He smiled at me...

    Life is weird. You can go from being strangers,

    to being friends, to being more than friends, to being practically strangers again.

    Don't feel sad over someone

    who gave up on you, feel sorry for them bc they gave up on someone who would have never given up on them.

    He used to captivate me. I was so head over heels at one point. Today I saw him for the first time in nearly a year. I was so surprised. He looked the same, very attractive of course. Same old smile same old eyes. The only difference was that I didn't feel ANYTHING anymore. He...

    that people come into your life for two things: 1. To be a lesson for life 2. To be blessing for life And, at the time, I scoffed at this - the mere idea of it. But it is very true, people that I hold closest to me, more than anyone else are the blessing for life type...

    They Come & They Go

    The title speaks for itself. I believe people come into one's life in order to push them to the next level, even if it's only a small favor, when you're down they pick you up, if you need help with the smallest task, you get assistance. Others are there to influence you either...

    The Story of 'US' from the Individual Statuses We Posted

    First, the disavowal… NONE of this is true. It’s total fiction and in the extremely unlikely chance that anything in this story even remotely resembles truth, I wouldn’t know it. So, please take this in the spirit it’s intended—total fiction—just a fun way of thinking...

    The challenge is knowing

    when to let go of these individuals who crossed your path for a reason, if only for a moment. It's not easy but letting go must sometimes be done. Accept the reason, add the story to the repertoire of your life, and move on down your chronological timeline.

    Sometimes they come into your life to teach you

    compassion for others, to teach you how to deal with angry broken people, to teach you how to communicate calmly with irate and hysterical people. Some of the biggest jerks who have come into my life have been my greatest teachers.
