Spiritual way of living

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 help figure out who you are or who you want to become.

You never know who these people may be but when you look eyes with them or hear their words, you know that very 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.

Some people believe everything happens for a reason. Some people believe things happen by chance or by means of good luck. Whatever your believe…

Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occurs as reasons or opportunities for you to grow in every way possible. Use these opportunities as a stepping stone to greater and better things for yourself.

The people you meet can affect your life. The successes and downfalls that you experience can create who you are, and 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 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 to 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. Say good morning or hello to complete strangers with a smile. 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.

‘If you take your eyes off your goals, all you see are obstacles.
Keep your eye on what you want and go for it.’

Create your own life and then go out and live it.

And if anyone has helped to make a difference in your life…
let them know…by a word, a letter or just a smile.
Better now then when they are gone
