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 to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people, maybe (possibly your roommate, neighbor, professor, long lost friend,chatmate, lover, or a total stranger), but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound ways. 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 potentials, strength, willpower or heart.Everything happens for a reason.

Nothing happens for a chance or by means of good luck. Illness, injury, 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 are and who you become. Even the bad experience can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones. If someone hurts you, betray you, or break your heart, forgive them, for they helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious when you open your heart and eyes to things.

Make everyday count. Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you can possibly can, for you may never experience it again. Talk to people you have never talked before, and actually listens. Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold your heads ups, 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 your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets. Most importantly, if you love someone, tell him or her, for you may never know what tomorrow may have in store. And learn a lesson in life each day that you live. Today is tomorrow you were worried about yesterday. Was it worth it.
