I have dedicated this following quote to you. Yes you, blogger who may live miles and miles away from me, or may not. Who I may have met, or have not. Who is sitting there, staring at the computer screen reading the exact words that I say to you. This is dedicated to you.
Now you must be asking yourself…why? Why would I dedicate something to you? I mean, books are dedicated to family members or people who have greatly impacted the lives of great authors! So, questions aside, doesn’t it feel great to have something dedicated to you?
Our entire lives we are told that we are never good enough. Commercials tell us that we do not look good enough, so we must buy certain make-up products. They tell us that we are not smart enough so we must buy certain books. That we are not in shape unless we use their “brilliant” fitness machines.
Well, guess what. I think you are good enough. I think that you, simply yourself, just the way that you are, is just perfect. Yes, beautiful blogger, you are good enough!
But instead of me feeding it to you…rattling off like an old record player…I want you to believe it for yourself. If only for a minute, even a second, I want you to sit there and finally realize that you are one brilliant, funny, charming, sincere person- something so incredibly priceless to the world.
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 when you look
eyes with them, you know that every
moment that you are with them, 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.
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
The people you meet 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. 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
MAKE EVERYDAY 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 who you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, even if it doesn’t seem right because you are too young or too far, just follow your heart. Surround yourself with those who make you smile, laugh, and make you happy.
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 then LET GO and LIVE IT!
