As you grow up we learn the one person who wasn’t supposed to let you down probably will. You’ll have your heart broken and you’ll break others hearts. You’ll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them. And you’ll forget that time is flying by. Life comes with no guarantees no times outs no second chances. you just have to live your life to the fullest, tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off. Speak out, be sincere, and say with conviction. And never forget where you come from, cause if you do it’s a long road home.
Liferuiner -1990

People that come into your life





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, neighbour, co-worker, longest friend, lover, or even a complete stranger) but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.
Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints in our hearts,
and We are never, ever the same.

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 realised your potential, strength, willpower, or heart. Everything happens for a reason, nothing happens by chance or by means of 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 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 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 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 then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.

Notes from the Universe

 
Just a reminder in case you forgot, in case you've thought otherwise, or in case you never knew...

There is nothing you can't have. There is nothing you can't do. There is nothing you can't be.

Okay?

Memorandum

Priorities

You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage - pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically - to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside. The enemy of the ‘best’ is often the ‘good’.

- Stephen Cove

Reader submission: Life's tiny delights

Chandra Nicole has another beautiful quote for us today:



I have never been a millionaire. But I have enjoyed a great meal, a crackling fire, a glorious sunset, a walk with a friend, a hug from a child, a cup of soup, a kiss behind the ear. There are plenty of life’s tiny delights for all of us.

Reader submission: Move away the obstacles

Word lovers, Chandra Nicole has another wonderful quote for us today.



"All we must do is to move away the obstacles that are blocking our best selves. We add nothing, just subtract what isn’t working. The essential self that remains is far more sophisticated and beautiful than anything we could dream up."

Balance

To find the balance you want, this is what you must become. You must keep your feet grounded so firmly on the earth that it’s like you have four legs, instead of two. That way, you can stay in the world. But you must stop looking at the world through your head. You must look through your heart, instead.
- Elizabeth Gilbert

"Life is..."

Life is a series of pulls back and forth. You want to do one thing, but you are bound to do something else. Something hurts you, yet you know it shouldn't. You take certain things for granted, even when you know you should never take anything for granted.

- Mitch Albom

"Promise Yourself"


"Promise Yourself  
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. 
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. 
To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To live in faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you."
