i came across this that a friend of mine forwarded from like 2002
it's some soppy shit but .. what the hell eh?
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 maybe but when you lock eyes with them
you know 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 but in reflection you realize that without overcoming these 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 of moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul.. without these small tests life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, and flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.
The people you may meet affect your life the successes and downfalls that you experience can create who you are.
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 the little things.
Make everyday count 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.
Create your own life and then go out and live it.
Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself.. for if you dont, no one else will believe in you.
For what it's worth, I believe in you =)
go get them tiger.
