Everything Has A Reason

Everything happens for a reason.

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there…to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be but you lock eyes with them, you know that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.

And sometimes things happen to you at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would never realize your potential, strength, will power or heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of luck. Illness, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test limits of your soul.

Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet affect your life. The successes and downfalls that you experience can create whom you are, and the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact they are probably the most poignant and important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, forgive them because they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but also because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things. Make every day count. Appreciate everything that you possibly can, for you may never experience it again.

Talk to people whom you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, even if it doesn't seem right because you are too young or too far, just follow your heart. Surround yourself with those who make you smile, laugh, and make you happy.

Break free and set your sights high. Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you. Create your own life and then go out and live it.

*The belief in your vision is the key to creating your own destiny*

I totally agree with you.<br />
Its a special moment when that special person comes into your life and you just know that it was meant to be.<br />
About six months ago at a party I met such a girl, as soon as she walked into the room I knew I had to get to know her and now we a great friends and she has helped me to find more of myself and be myself.

A truly wonderful story and I have seen it play out over and over in my life.

Thank you. TRUE.

True that

Hey

very true i think the same way thanks for posting this

I love your attitude about life. We must strive to have the "Attitude of Gratitude". Things do happen for a reason. When we're in a situation, it doesn't feel very well at all but finally when you're out of it, you realize you've learned a lot. You wouldn't have learned these thing otherwise. Love your post. Keep up the good work. You never know who you'll touch with your life story.

I agree whole-heartedly! real nice read.
