Sometimes

Pastorale

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 friend, lover,
or even a complete stranger
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 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 will 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 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…
try to appreciate the moments of life 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 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 is 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,Think about taking time to tell those you love how much they mean to you .Be really interested in what your family memebres are doing,thinking,feeling.Ask them about their dreams and longings. say: I belive in you.

For you never know what tomorrow may have in store.
Tomorrow is not promised
And learn a lesson in life each day you live.

With love,
Fatimah
