    Each One Leaves Something Different

    There are those who touch your being so gently, that on the sand of your life, the only footprints to be seen are your own. Others trample and stomp so hard, they leave crushed deep footprints, and sand strewn everywhere, and all you can do is wait helplessly...

    I believe this. I believe

    that our destinies are already mapped out. People come into our lives and leave if for no reasons other than to make you arrive at your destination, to meet the people you are supposed to meet and make a part of your life. Some will leave because they aren't meant to stay...

    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...

    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?

    People Do Come Into Our Lives For A Reason

    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...

    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 come into your life to show you your

    worth. How to value yourself. Your friends show you love and how being there for each other means so much. Your enemies show you how strong you can be, how wrong you can be in order to stenghten yourself, build yourself up. Strangers show you how safe you think you are.
