a beautiful letdown.
the reckoner.
everything happens for a reason

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 you lock eyes with them,
you know that very moment that
they will affect your life
in some profound way.

And sometimes things happens to you
at the time that may seem horrible, painful
and unfair, but in reflection you realize that
without overcoming those obstacles you
would never realize your potential,
strength, will power or heart.

Everything happens for a reason.
Nothing happens by chance
or by means of luck.
Illness, love, lost moments of
true greatness and sheer stupidity
all occur to test limits of your soul.
Without these small tests,
life would be like a smoothly paved,
straight, flat road to nowhere safe
and comfortable but dull
and utterly pointless.

The people you meet affect your life.
The successes and downfalls
that you experience can create
whom 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.

If someone loves you,
love them back unconditionally,
not only because they love you,
but also because they are teaching you
to love and open your heart and
eyes to little things.
Make every day count.
Appreciate everything that
you possibly can, for you may never
experience it again.

Talk to people whom 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,
no one else will believe in you.
Create your own life and then
go out and live it.

"If you take your eyes off your goals,
all you see is obstacles."
