    This is exactly what life is made, of MOMENTS. Moments that we have to go through,  good or bad ones, for our own learning and growth. Never forgetting the most important: nothing in life is by chance. Absolutely nothing. Perhaps something is happening in our life now that we...

    So True...

    I reckon everything happens for a reason, it could be seen as what will be will be. I.e. If you're destined to be run over by a bus, then so be it. There will probably be a higher meaning to all this that we are too naive to consider. That is why everything happens for a reason...
