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 (possibly your
roommate, neighbor, professor, long lost/new found friend, 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.
And 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. 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, whatever they may be, life would be like a
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 probably the most 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
as to when you open your heart.
If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, 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.
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 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, it will be hard for others to believe in you.
You can make of your life anything you wish.
Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.
Most importantly, if you love someone tell them, for you never know what
tomorrow may have in store. And learn a lesson in life each day you live.
Today is the tomorrow you were worried about yesterday. Was it worth
Never Too Late
There was once a guy who suffered from cancer... a cancer that can't be
treated. He was 18 years old and he knew he didn't have much time left.
All his life, he was stuck in his house being taken care by his mother.
He never went outside but he was sick of staying home and wanted to go
out for once. So he asked his mother and she gave him permission.
He walked down his block and he passed a CD store. He looked through the
front door for a second as he walked and what he saw make him stop and
stare. He saw a young girl about his age and he knew it was love at
first sight. He opened the door and walked in, not looking at anything
else but her.
He walked closer and closer until he was finally at the front desk where
She looked up and asked "Can I help you?"
She smiled and he thought it was the most beautiful smile he has ever
seen before and wanted to kiss her right there.
He said "Uh... Yeah... Umm... I would like to buy a CD."
He picked one out and gave her money for it.
"Would you like me to wrap it for you?" she asked, smiling her cute
He nodded and she went to the back of the store.
She came back with the wrapped CD and gave it to him. He took it and
walked out of the store.
He went home and from then on, he went to that store everyday and bought
a CD, and she wrapped
it for him. He took the CD home and put it in his closet unopened. He
was still too shy to ask her out and he really wanted to but he
He talked to his mother about her and told him to just ask her. So the
next day, he took all his courage and went to the store. He boughta CD
like he did everyday and once again she went to the back of the store
and came back with it wrapped.
He took it and when she wasn't looking, he left his phone number on the
desk and ran out...
!!! RRRRRING !!!
The mother picked up the phone and said, "Hello?"
It was the girl! She asked for the boy and the mother started to cry and
said, "You don't know? He passed away yesterday..." The line was quiet
except for the cries of the boy's mother.
Later in the day the mother went into the boy's room and she opened the
closet. She was face to face with piles and piles of unopened CDs. She
was surprised to find all those CDs and she picked one up and sat down
on the bed and she started to open it. Inside there was the CD and as
she took it out of the wrapper, out fell a piece of paper. The mother
picked it up and started to read it.
It said: "Hi... I think UR really cute. Do u wanna go out with me?"
The mother opened another CD...Again there was a piece of paper.
It said: "Hi...I think UR really cute. Do U wanna go out with me?" Love,
So dear friends....If you love somebody.....say it loud to
her/him.....before it is too late.
Remember to always say what you mean.
If you love someone, tell them.
Don't be afraid to express yourself.
Reach out and tell someone what they mean to you.
Beause when you decide that it is the right time, it might be too late.
Seize the day.
Never have regrets.
And most importantly, stay close to your friends and family, for they
have helped make you the person that you are today...
