What Life Will Hold For You

People will come into your life and somehow, you will know immediately that they were meant to be there; to serve a purpose, teach a lesson or to help you to figure out who you are or who you are meant to become. You never know who these people might be Ė a roommate, a neighbor, a doctor, a teacher, a friend, a lover or even a complete stranger Ė but when you set eyes on them, you know at that very moment that they will affect your life in some very profound manner.

Sometimes things happen to you that may seem painful, horrific and unjust at first, but in reflecting back, you will find that without overcoming these obstacles, you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower or the depth of your heart and spirit. 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 road to nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable; a journey on Ďauto pilotíÖ.something you could do with a blindfold on. But it would be dull, boring and utterly pointless. Always choose to take the road that is less traveled.

The people you meet who affect your life, along with the successes and the downfalls you experience, help to create who you are and who you will become. Even the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are usually the most important ones. If someone loves you, give love back to them in whatever way that you can. Do this, not only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to how to love and open your heart onto others. Accept the love of others, no matter how minimal it might seem; for perhaps this is the only way in which they have been taught to express their love. If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart; forgive them. They have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious of whom you open your heart to. We will all have our hearts broken badly at least once in our lifetime.

Make every day count; live it as though it were your last day on this earth. Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can, for you will never be able to experience them again. Talk to people that you have never talked to before and listen to what they have to say. There is much to be learned from otherís life experiences. Strive to make your heart empathetic toward others, as you donít know how others may have suffered until you have walked in their shoes.

Allow yourself to fall in love or break free from it; the sky is your limit and you deserve the best. If the love you are giving is not being returned; move on. You deserve more! Hold your head up high because you have every right to. Tell yourself that you are a wonderful, beautiful, exquisite individual. Strive to become the person you truly want to be and believe in yourself, for if you donít, it will be difficult for others to believe in you.

You can make anything you wish of your life. Create your own life, then go out and live it; with not one regret. If you love someone, tell them today, for you donít know what tomorrow may have in store. Learn a lesson in life each day that you are here!

Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday. It really wasn't worth it; was it?

With love, to my beautiful Daughters, Fawn & Amber
(1994)
