Lesson of the Week

It's not always a good idea to give people second chances.

I'm just saying.

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

You never know who these people may be - a roommate, a neighbour, a
professor, a friend, a lover, or even a complete stranger - but when you
lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment they will affect your life
in some profound way.

Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair
at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles
you would have never realised your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.

Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity
all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests,
whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved straight flat road
to nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly

The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and downfalls you
experience, help to create who you are and who you become. Even the bad
experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are sometimes the most
important ones.

If someone loves you, give love back to them in whatever way you can, not
only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to
love and how to open your heart and eyes to things.

If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for
they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious
to whom you open your heart.

Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from those moments
everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it
again. Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and listen to
what they have to say.

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, it
will be hard for others to believe in you.

You can make anything you wish of your life. Create your own life and then
go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.

And if you love someone tell them, for you never know what tomorrow may have
in store.
