10 Years... by riya0326 10 Years... by riya0326
....Of all the things that I have done, this seems to be the most significant one. It isn't because of the amount of time and effort that I have spent in doing it, but because of all the memories that comes with it....

These are random thoughts that I have found from the entries that I have kept on an online journal a few years ago. It came from a forwarded email and I have thought of posting it. It kinda sums up the things that I want to express as of the moment...

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
(possibly your
roommate, neighbor, coworker, long lost friend,
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.

And sometimes things happen to you that may seem
horrible, painful,
and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that
overcoming those obstacles you would have never
realized your
potential, strength, willpower, 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, 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 pointless.

The people you meet who affect your life, and the
success and
downfalls you experience, help to create who you are
and who you

Even 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,
for they have helped you learn about trust and the
importance of
being cautious when you open your heart.

If someone loves you, love them back
unconditionally, 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

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 actually

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 of your life anything you wish.

Create your own life and then go out and live it
with absolutely no

Most importantly !!!

If you love someone tell him or her, for you never
know what
tomorrow may have in store.

And learn a lesson in life each day that you live.
