Throughout my life, I’ve realized that people come in (and out) of your life for a reason. Whether that reason be to make your life amazing or miserable – they walked along the same path as you for a purpose.
I’d like to believe that I have more people enter my life and make it more worth, than pass through my life and leave a sour taste in my mouth. Of course there are going to be falling outs with friends , relatives, and significant others. That’s inevitable. No one gets along with everyone, all of the time.
Recently, I’ve been in more contact with a variety of friends from the past who I don’t usually talk to as often as I would like. But, whenever I have the pleasure of exchanging a couple of sentences with these people, I feel a light of happiness shine bright inside me. It’s crazy how much of a connection you can make with a person you met on a weeks’ vacation in a different country. And after 7 years you still have the feeling that this person might know you better than people you talk with every week. I could go on listing examples from my past – but I think you get the picture. It’s these kind of individuals I never want to lose contact with.
This post is a genuine THANK YOU to all of those people in my life that bring me happiness and love. For all those people who have nothing but words of encouragement and heartfelt messages each time we speak – I cherish you and your opinions. It’s because of you that I am always encouraged to follow my dreams and to listen to my heart.
And for those who entered, and then left my life, I thank you as well. There obviously was a lesson (or two) to be learned from your presence (however brief or long it ultimately lasted).
Step back and take a look at those people in your life that make you smile and feel warm inside every moment they pop back into your life. Don’t be afraid to tell them next time how much they mean to you and how happy that you crossed paths in this lifetime.
