The Story of Life

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 to help you figure out
who you are or who you want to become.
You never know who these people may be
(possibly your roommate, neighbor,
coworker, longlost friend, 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.
And sometimes things happen to you that
may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at
first, but in reflection you find that without
overcoming those obstacles you would have
never realized your potential, strength,
willpower, or heart.
Everything happens for a reason. Nothing
happens by chance or by means of luck.
Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true
greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to
test the limits of your soul. Without these
small tests, whatever they may be, life
would be like a smoothly 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 success and downfalls you
experience help to create who you become.
Even 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, for they have helped
you learn about trust and the importance of
being cautious when you open your heart.
If someone loves you, love them back
unconditionally, not only because they love
you, but because in a way, they are
teaching you to love and how to open your
heart and eyes to things.
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 actually listen. 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
of your life anything you wish. Create your
own life then go out and live it with
absolutely no regrets.
