  1. Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they weremeant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or tohelp you figure out who you are or who you want to become.You never know who these people may be – a roommate, a neighbour, aprofessor, a friend, a lover, or even a complete stranger – but when youlock eyes with them, you know at that very moment they will affect your lifein some profound way.Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfairat first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstaclesyou would have never realised your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidityall 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 roadto nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterlypointless.The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and downfalls youexperience, help to create who you are and who you become. Even the badexperiences can be learned from. In fact, they are sometimes the mostimportant ones.If someone loves you, give love back to them in whatever way you can, notonly because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you tolove and how to open your heart and eyes to things.If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, forthey have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautiousto whom you open your heart.Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from those momentseverything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience itagain. Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and listen towhat they have to say.Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high. Hold yourhead up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a greatindividual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, itwill be hard for others to believe in you.You can make anything you wish of your life. Create your own life and thengo out and live it with absolutely no regrets.And if you love someone tell them, for you never know what tomorrow may havein store.
