There's Always A Reason Why...

Sometimes people come into our lives and we knew it right away that they were meant to be there… to serve a purpose, to teach us a lesson, or to help us figure out who we are or who we want to become. We’ll never know who these people may be, but when we try to look at them inside our hearts with eyes wide open, at that very moment we would definitely know that we are with them. In the most unexpected or profound way they will create some changes in our lives.

Sometimes things happen to you at the same time that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair. But trying our best to reflect to all of these things we would realize that without overcoming all these obstacles we would have never realize our potential, strength, will power, and for possessing a good heart.

The things we encounter every day happen for a reason. It doesn’t happen by mere chance or by means of good luck, illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity. All of these things happen to test the limits of our soul because without these small tests, our life would be like a smoothly paved, straight flat road to nowhere. Yes, we could have a safe and comfortable life, but it could be dull and utterly pointless which doesn’t make any sense at all.

The people we meet affect our life. All the success and downfalls that we experience would help us become the person we are right now and we would learn something from the bad experiences we had. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones. If someone hurt us, betray us or break our heart – we should somehow learn how to forgive them because they have helped us learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom we open our heart. If someone love us, we have to love them unconditionally not only because they love us, but also because they are teaching us to love and open our heart and eyes to little things.

We talk to people who we have never talked to before and actually listen. We should let ourselves fall in love, even if it doesn’t seem right because we are too young or too far from that person, just follow our heart. We have to surround ourselves with those who make us smile, laugh, and make us happy. Break free and set our hopes high. Let’s hold our heads up high because we have every right to do it. We should always remind ourselves that we are a great individual and we believe in the things that we are capable of doing it, for if we don’t believe in ourselves, no one else would believe in us. Make every day count. We need to learn how to appreciate every moment and take everything from every possible way we could for we may never be able to experience these things again. Let’s create our own life, then we have to let go and live with it.
