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 lock
eyes with them, you know that very
moment that 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
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.
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 to. If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things.
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 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 and then go out and live it.
Be careful what you ask for,
you just might get it.
Your words, dreams and thoughts have power to create conditions in your life.
What you speak about, you can bring about.
If you keep saying you can't stand your job, you might lose your job.
If you keep saying you can't stand your body, your body can become sick.
If you keep saying you can't stand your car, your car could be stolen or stop operating.
If you keep saying you're always broke, guess what? you'll always be broke.
If you keep saying you can't trust a man or trust a woman, you will always find someone in your life to hurt and betray you.
If you keep saying you can't find a job, you will remain unemployed.
If you keep saying you can't find someone to love you or believe in you, your very thoughts will attract more experiences to confirm your beliefs.
Turn your thoughts and conversations around to be more positive and power packed with faith, hope, love and action.
Don't be afraid to believe that you can have what you want and deserve.
Get out of your own way.
Stop, think and listen to what you are speaking and believing.
What you energize with your faith, feelings, words and actions will magnetize into your life what you focus on.
-- Jewel Diamond Taylor, Motivational Speaker
A well known speaker started off his
seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the
room of 200, he asked, "Who would like
this $20 bill?" Hands started going up.
He said, "I am going to give this $20 to
one of you but first, let me do this."
He proceeded to crumple the dollar bill
up. He then asked, "Who sill wants it?"
Still the hands were up in the air.
"Well," he replied, "What if I do this?"
And he dropped it on the ground and
started to grind it into the floor with
his shoe. He picked it up, now all
crumpled and dirty. "Now who still
wants it?" Still the hands went into the
"My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value in God's eyes. To Him, dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to Him. Psalm 17:8 states that God will keep us, "as the apple of His eye."
THOUGHT: The worth of our lives come not in what we do or who we are but by WHOSE WE ARE! You are special. Have a great day!! Give your troubles to God; He will be up all night anyway.
