Meaning of Life - my experience

Photo by Kitchen Wench

Sometimes things happen to us at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection we realize that without overcoming those obstacles we would never realize our potential, strength, will power and heart. Life is always full of hardship and difficulties.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of luck. Illness, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test limits of our soul. This is the law of cause and effect. I have been through bad and hard times and I know many people out there have the same experience.

Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless. No challenges at all.

The people we meet affect our life. The successes and downfalls that we experience can create who we are and the bad experiences we learned from will teach us something valuable. In fact the most painful ones are the important ones. If someone hurts us, betrays us or breaks our heart, forgive them because they have helped us learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom we open our heart to.

Make every day count. Appreciate everything that we possibly can and have, for we may never experience it again. Life is short.

Hold our head up because we have every right to, no matter how small we are.

Tell ourselves, we are a great individual and believe in ourselves, for if we don't believe in ourselves, no one else will believe in us. Create our own life and then go out and live it. Everyone of us is unique. Cheers!!!
