08/24/19 Weekend Grif.Net – Life’s 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 to =
help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never =
know who these people may be – a roommate, a neighbor, a =
professor, a friend, a lover, or even a complete stranger – but =
when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment they will =
affect your life in some profound way.

 

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 potential, strength, =
willpower, or heart.

 

Illness, =
injury, love, 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 experiences =
can be learned from. In fact, they are sometimes the most important =
ones.

 

If someone =
loves you, give love back to them in whatever way you can, not only =
because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to =
love and how to open your heart and eyes to =
things.

 

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.

 

Make every day =
count. Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything =
that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. =
Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and listen to what =
they have to say.

 

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, it will be hard for others to 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!

the share to Stephen]
