Everything Happens For 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,
 they 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;
your roommate, your neighbor, professor,
 long lost friend, lover or even a complete stranger who,
when 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
and at the time they seem horrible, painful and unfair
but in reflection you realize
 that without overcoming those obstacles
you would never have realized your potential,
strength, will power of heart.
 Everything happens for a reason.
 Nothing happens by chance or
 by means of good or bad luck.
 Illness, injury, love, lost moments or
true greatness and sheer stupidity
all occur to test the limits of the soul.
Without these small tests,
if they be events, illnesses or relationships,
 life would be like a smooth paved,
straight, flat road to nowhere.
Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.
The people you meet who affect your life and successes
and downfalls you experience,
 they are the ones who create who you are.
 Even the bad experience can be learned from…
 Those lessons are the hardest
 and probably 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, love them back unconditionally,
not only because they love you,
 but because they are teaching you to love
and opening 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 it everything that you possibly can,
for you may never be able to experience it again.
 Talk to people you have never talked to before,
and actually listen,
 let yourself fall in love,
 break free and
set your sights high.
You can make of your life anything you wish.
Create your own life and then go out and live it.
 I wish you all the best in your endeavors as well
 as struggles in life.
Have a fighting spirit
 and never hesitate to get back in the struggle!
