Everything Happens For a Reason

My friend sent this to me in an e-mail a long time ago, and I really had to share it

 Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that
they were meant to be ther…to 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 these people may be but when you lock eyes with them,
you know that every moment that they will affect your life in some
profound way. And sometimes things happen to you at the time that may
seem horrible, 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 luck, illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness
and sheer stupidity all occurs to test the limits of your soul. Without
these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road
to nowhere. Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless. The
people you meet affect your life. The successes and downfalls that you
experience can create who you are, and bad experience 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
because they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of
being cautious to whom you open your heart to. If someone loves you,
love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but
because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to
little things.
 
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 to.
 
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. Create your
own life and then go out and live it.
 
 
Joe to Mindy. Read it.
Don’t let me have to bitch slap you. LOL.
