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, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road...to NOWHERE. Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.
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. 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 amazing and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will 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, for you never know what tomorrow may have in store. And learn a lesson in life each day you live.
Learn from the past so you don't make future mistakes. Don't be afraid of the future, that's a big mistake. Learning is more than just knowing. Learning is applying what experience has taught you. It will enable you to make the needed adjustments. This concept of change paves the path in which progress can walk. Since the past has past and the future is not yet here...live in the present and receive your gift.
