    “I no longer believed in the idea of soul

    mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that...

    We should understand,

    people come for a reason and things happen for a reason. it might be just the reaction to the action.. or you invite the trouble.. but every moment should be cherished..

    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...

    Take The Good And Forgive The Bad.

    "There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to...

    One year, my friend Seth went to the hospital.

    It came as a complete surprise. He'd had a mental breakdown. He was being kept in the psychiatric ward--no visitors. I wanted to do something for him. I made a card, and spent time getting it signed by as many of our mutual friends, and his family members, as I could. But then...

    2015 was definitely a year of transition.

    Many new people came. A few people were lost. Whether the connections are fleeting or ongoing, I appreciate them for what they are. In one way or another I have learned a great deal about people and myself through those connections. It makes it all worth it, no matter how it...

    A lot of people have come into my life

    and most of them also went away again quickly. For a long time I've struggled with that, but most of them also told me how glad they were they met me and how much they appreciated my advice. I then came to the conclusion that it may be my purpose in life to help people through a...

    Don't be someone's downtime,

    It can be like a revolving door.

    I am honored to have been taught life lessons by those who chose to leave. I believe everything happens for a reason.

    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.

    They say people leave imprints in your life,

    whether they stay in it or not. You are akin to a tattoo in mine. Always with me, and never to be forgotten.

    place for freaks and misfits, but that's far from true. I have met some intriguing people who have opened my eyes to a whole new world. One friend is probably fast asleep right now on the other side of the globe. But when he awakens, my inbox will get that little ding, and a...

    Our loved ones - whether by blood,
