Everything happens for a good reason

This is just one of those forwarded emails that landed in my inbox today. I just want to post it as it might touch another person's heart the way it touched mine.


Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be 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 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 never realize your potential, strength, will power or heart.

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 whom 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.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but also because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things. Make every day count. Appreciate everything that you possibly can, for you may never experience it again.

Talk to people whom you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights high. Hold you 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 you own life and then go out and live it.

Share this with anyone whom you believe has made a difference in your life!

Speaking of life's obstacles...I've considered my gaining weight as one of my obstacles and it has made me insecure and paranoid. I'm taking my last anti-obesity pill today after 2 weeks. Yes, after several sales talk from my medrep friend from Abbot Lab, I've finally decided to take this "million dollar pill" (P1,400 for 14 pills). At least, I'm paying it on installment basis, hahaha. No regrets though, as of today, I've counted the people who said that I loose weight...there are 7 of them. I need 14 people to tell me to match the 14 pills...hahaha. I'm still contemplating of getting another set of pills to totally trim down. Esep-esep muna... ;)
