    My niece, Sarah is one of those people.

    I was so shocked when I got a call from my sister, Gemma's husband that she had arrived. On my birthday, none the less. And I was even more surprised that Gemma and David named her Sarina, after me. It was the best birthday gift I have ever gotten.She was always so sweet, but...

    Consider

    Some people have had tragedy in their lives. Truly hard events that shake their world. But for many the things that hurt us, the things that cause us distress are the smaller things. The things that in the grand scheme of things are small...and perhaps petty. But it's funny how...

    I am a firm believer

    that everyone who comes into your life is there for a reason! It may be a simple encounter in the street. It could be a more intimate connection you never expected. Heck, even the people you communicate with here on EP...everyone you meet is there in your life for some reason...

    I found out my husband was cheating on me two

    years ago. Shortly after, I began dating someone but broke it off 6 weeks later because it was too soon and I was scared of getting hurt again, although feelings had developed. I've been alone ever since. Ten months ago, here on EP, I responded to some guy's post about being...

    Most of the time people come into your life to

    teach you something. Sometimes you learn something without knowing it. They teach you through experiencing something.

    Its just randomness how you could go all day,

    hoping to run into someone you really wanna see and talk too. With knowing the chances are super slim that you will see that person. Still your hopeful. And when you finally give up on that idea. There they appear infront of you out of nowhere....Is It A Sign?

    An interesting person you have met.

    So a week back, I went to watch the movie Interstellar with one of my friend. As we went to purchase our tickets I felt a tap on my shoulder. I immediately froze and slowly looked behind; there was this guy with a goofy smile on his face and he awkwardly told me hi. I looked to...

    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...

    Each One Leaves Something Different

    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 are merely a bunch of atoms

    and cells that replicate a pattern over and over again to form this body called you. But you are not the same you tomorrow as you are now. In 7 years every single part of you is replaced by new atoms and cells. Yet we still hold this recognisable pattern, our face, our name, our...

    I believe this. I believe

    We may not understand why,

    it may take a long time for the story to unfold. But I do believe that some people are meant to be part of our life, that there is a reason our paths crossed. Sometimes the person is only in our life for a brief moment, but long enough to change us, to make a difference...

    People Do Come Into Our Lives For A Reason

    There are times in your life

    when your path crosses with someone who is exactly what you were looking for. Another person who knows who you need them to be to bring out your own best you. I am lucky enough to have someone that makes me better, SOMEONE who I belong to. Than you Sir.
