Everything happens for a reason. 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 or who you want to become.

You never know who those people may be; your roommates, your neighbours, professor, long lost friend, lover or even a complete stranger. When you lock eyes with them, you know that they will affect your life in some profound way. Sometimes things happen to you and at the time they seem horrible and painfully unfair, but upon reflection you realise that without overcoming those obstacles you would never have realised your potential, strength, will and power of heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments or true greatness, and sheer stupidity, all occur to test the limits of the soul.

Without those small tests, if they be events, illnesses or relationships; life would be like a smooth paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet who affect your success and your life experiences, they are the ones who create who you are. Even the bad experiences from those lessons are the hardest and probably the most important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you, or even breaks your heart, forgive them; they helped you learn about trust and the importance of being conscious to who you open your heart to.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally. They are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to the thing 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.

You can make of your life anything you wish for. Create your own life and then go out and live it. I wish you all the best in your endeavours as well as struggles in life. Have a fighting spirit and never hesitate to get back in the struggle.
