Everything Happens For A Reason

Each time when I feel upset, bore or nervous with things happening around me, I will love to read this article and remind myself to be more mature and appreciate it.

I know I am still not doing well enough, having too much of quick-temper and act foolish sometime. And this article is great motivation to brighten up my life, which I always share with a lot of my friends. Just want this to appear on my blog to share.

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 help figure out who you are or who you want to become.You never know who these people may be, but when you lock eyes with them, you know that every moment that you are with them; they will affect your life in some profound way.

And sometimes things happen to you at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair but in reflection you realise that without overcoming those obstacles, you would have never realised your potential, strength, will power or heart.Everything happens for a reason.

Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moment of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere, safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless. The people you meet affect your life. The successes and downfalls that you experience can create who you are and what you become, and 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 because 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 also because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things.

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 who you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, even if it doesn't seem right because you are too young or too far, just follow your heart. Surround yourself with those who make you smile, laugh and make you happy.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, no one else will believe in you.

Create your own life then LET GO and LIVE IT. Judge its success by whatyou've had to give up achieving it. The happiest miser on Earth is the man who saves up every friend he canmake."
