Everything happens for a reason

Hello everybody,

Today's date is Saturday, 11th of April 2009. I've realised that the dates and times are wrong on my blogs.

Anyway, i didn’t get round to doing a blog yesterday and i apologize to everyone who didn’t let me forget about it : )

Today, i am going seeing my nana, going in the gym and then watching a DVD tonight with some treats and the quilt : )
Yesterday, i went watching Waterhead play rugby against Saddleworth Rangers and they won!! (YAY)
It was a really good game, but the lads looked knackered during second half : (
Anyway, because i was busy yesterday ... i didn’t write a blog .. nor did i go in the gym : (
So to make up for that i am going in the gym twice today; both for thirty minutes.
I am also going to practice my drums actually; i haven’t done that in a while as well. Well now i am blabbering on with myself so i shall begin the actually blog part now : ) Thank you guys for reading!!

Everything happens for a reason.

Sometimes people walk into your life and you know right away that they were supposed to be there to serve a kind of purpose i suppose. Maybe it’s to teach you a lesson in life or maybe it’s to help you figure out who you are and to mould you into the person you eventually become.
You never know who these people may be but when you look at them, you know instantly that every moment they are in your life; they will have an effect on it somehow. Every person you have ever met in your life has had some kind of impact on you. Just take a moment to think of a few people randomly and think what you have gained from having that person with you in your life. Maybe it’s a friend who you no longer speak to after a bad argument; they possibly taught you some kind of lesson right?
Maybe you’ll think of that nurse that always seemed to make you smile when you were feeling pretty low. She probably made you become a friendlier, helpful person sub-consciously. Then again it could possibly be that friend of a friend who helped you do a simple thing like open the front door. You gained a new friend that day.
I’ve just sat here and thought everyone who i’ve met in my life has had an effect on me. Some people have even saved my life and in the long run pro-longed it. How can you ever thank someone for that?
I’ll tell you ... you grab every single part of life with a firm grip and you never, not once, let go of it. You embrace everything that goes on; even through the bad times. When you’re going through something bad, don’t ever worry because something good will always balance everything out again.

Sometimes, things happen to you at some point in your life 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 heart. Things knock you down and you get up more knowledgeable, stronger and usually happier. In the long run, those things are the biggest lessons in life you’ll ever have. Maybe it’s top kick your bum into actually looking after yourself more, maybe it’s a lesson in appreciating everyone and everything in your life.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck.

The bad times in life usually are the most important and biggest moments you will ever get to learn from. It could be illness, injury, love or complete stupidity. These occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, life would be like a very, very, very long, straight, flat road to a basic end.
How boring would life be without little bumps on the road?
What would you learn from life without the hiccups that teach you things?
What could you possibly gain from life?
In life, there is always going to be another hill or mountain but you can’t make them move. You have to grit your teeth, put a smile on your face and overcome those mountains. My view on CF is that it’s a test to shape us into stronger people, to mould us into becoming people who have been blessed with the ability to embrace and appreciate the small things in life because someday they’ll become big things.

The people you meet affect your life. These people may hurt you, betray you or break your heart but forgive them because they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart to. You’ll possibly never forget but it’s defiantly a lesson learned right?
On the other hand, when someone loves you; love them back unconditionally.
They are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things. They are allowing you to experience one of the greatest things in life. Love.

Make every day count. Appreciate every single moment in life because you’ll never be able to get them back again. One they have gone .... they’re gone.
Talk to people you’ve never talked to before and actually listen. They will have things to tell you, stories to share and even a good gossip possibly ; )

If your one of those people that have been hurt by allowing someone to get close to your heart or even in your heart ... let yourself fall in love again, break free and set your sights high. Everyone has someone that they are meant to be with. If it hasn’t happened yet .. it will.

Hold your head up because you have every right to. No-one should have the control to make you do otherwise. You are your own person so head high, chin up and put the gorgeous smile on your face. People will wonder why you’re so happy; it will confuse them. Haha!
Most of all 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. Enjoy it. Love it!

Take Care, Sophie xoxo
