Everything Happens for a Reason – Life Lessons


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 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, upon reflection, you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized 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 moments 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 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 to. If someone loves you, love them back, unconditionally, not only because they love you, but 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 whom 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, no one else will believe in you.

You can make anything you wish of your life. Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.

And if you love someone tell them, for you never know what tomorrow may have in store.

Learn a lesson in life each day that you live! Today is the tomorrow you were worried about yesterday. Was it worth it?

I believe that everytime I trip & fall there is always an invisible hand to hold onto and a crystal clear whispher of love & care to listen to. Without fail, I experience this in my times of sorrow and grief ~~~ so much unconditional love for me to embrace and rest my weary soul in. I feel His spiritual arms & His Presence, that never abandons me. Yes, he always lifts me up with so much love & kisses away my tears of love for My Supreme Being, as He seals His Almighty & Infinite Love for me. Yes, I know like all of you, I too am his precious love too. I long to return home to my Almighty Heart of Love, Joy & Peace. O! How much I miss my Beloved Creator but then it looks like He needs me to fulfill my blueprint before I say farewell to this life for good.

    Sending you prayers of Divine. God Willing, His Holy Will & Mine Be Done. I send you, my Love & Blessings where ever you may be. Love Carolx
