Everything Happens for a Reason

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there

They serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become.


You never know who these people may be – a roommate, a neighbor, a professor, a friend, a lover, or even a complete stranger –

But when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.


Sometimes things happen to you and at that time they may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first,

But in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would never have realized your potential, strength, will power, or heart.


Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck.


Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity, all occur to test the limits of the soul.

Without these small tests, whatever they may be, events, illnesses, or relationships, life would be like a smooth paved, straight, flat road to nowhere.

It would be safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.


The people you meet who affect your life and the successes and downfalls you experience,

They help to create who you are and who you become.

Even the bad experiences can be learned from.

In fact, they are sometimes the most important ones.


If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious

to whom you open your heart.


If someone loves you, give love back to them in whatever way you can, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because

they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without them.


Make every day count.

Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can,

for you may never be able to experience it again.

Talk to people that you have never talked to before and listen to what they have to say.


Let yourself fall in love, 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, it will be hard for others to believe in you.


You can make anything you wish of your life. Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.


Learn a lesson in life each day that you live!
