TOMORROW IS NOT PROMISED

 

 

Sometimes people come into your life

and you know right away that they were meant to be there,

they serve some sort of purpose,

teach you a lesson

or help figure out who you are

and who you want to become.

 

You never know who these people may be:

your neighbor, child, long lost friend, lover, or even a complete

stranger who, 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

and at the time they seem painful and unfair,

but in 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 or bad 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,

whether they be events, illnesses or relationships,

life would be like a smoothly paved straight flat road to nowhere,

safe and comfortable,

but dull and utterly pointless.

 

The people you meet who affect your life

and the successes and downfalls you experience

create who you are,

and even the bad experiences can be learned from,

In fact, they are probably the 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 to

whom you open your heart…

 

If someone loves you,

love them back unconditionally,

not only because they love you,

but because they are teaching you to love

and opening your heart and eyes to things

you would have never seen or felt without them.

 

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 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 too.

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 either.

 

Create your own life

and then go out and live in it!

“Live Each Day As If It Were Your Last…

Tomorrow is Not Promised”
