Everything Happens for a Reason

Sometimes people come into our lives and we know right away that they were meant to be there… to serve some sort of purpose… teach us a lesson or help us figure out who we are and who we want to become. We never know who these people maybe but when we look eyes with them, we know that every moment that we are with them, they will affect our life in some profound way. And sometimes things happen to us that may seem painful and unfair, but in reflection we realize that without overcoming those obstacles we 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 our 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.

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 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. Play your own music, listen to the tune of your own bass flute. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will. Create your own life then LET GO and LIVE IT!

The Biker

A very very short story that speaks volumes of love. And if you’re short of time, this is a story to read.
(A girl and guy were speeding over 100 mph on a motorcycle)

Girl: Slow
down. I’m scared.
Guy: No this is fun.
Girl: No its not. Please, its to scary!
Guy: Then tell me you love me.
Girl: Fine, I love you. Slow down!
Guy: Now give me a BIG hug. (Girl hugs him)
Guy: Can u take my helmet off and put it on? Its bugging me.

In the paper the next day: A motorcycle had crashed into a building because of brake failure. Two people were on the motorcycle, but only one survived. The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized that his brakes broke, but he didn’t want to let the girl know. Instead, he had her say she loved him, felt her hug one last time, then had her wear his helmet so she would live even though it meant he would die.

Graduation Month is Here!

Wherever stores you may go these days you probably would notice ornaments painting the importance of the month… not only for graduating students but to the parents as well.

Simply seeing those racks of pretty graduation dresses, graduation caps and diplomas being hanged around the store brings me back to the olden times. I don’t know if you agree or not but to me, graduation is a one of a kind fulfillment. It’s always a different feeling when you see how your family, relatives, friends and even the entire nation acknowledged your success and celebrates with you.

There’s good luck messages from prominent groups and individuals you can see on TV or greetings aired over the radio. These days though, instant messages via text and messengers have made a great addition to those greeting channels.

Another popular way of conveying greetings and wishes to the graduates is through giving gifts. Now, that sounds more exciting, isn’t it? Who wouldn’t love gifts and surprises?

Unlike gifts for other occasions, a graduation gift doesn’t really need to be that extravagant. Even fun gifts like a personalized ink stamps, a bath wrap or a personalized platter would do for girls… they always find it cool while you can easily get any trinket or gadgets for men. Small gifts like these are fun to reminisce with.

I remember one of the gifts I received when I graduated in high school was a medium sized pink stuffed bunny. A close friend gave it to me and would you believe I still have it as good as new up until today? That’s how I treasure a thing that’s been given to me regardless of its cash value and size. Of course other than material, the presence of my family stands the most precious gift of all.
