You my friend, are one of those people that when I first “locked eyes” with you, I knew I had met someone that would be important in my life. That was over two years ago, but it seems I’ve known you a lifetime. You have taught me much about life and business, and the heart you bring to whatever you do is truly amazing.

I am grateful for our friendship, and look forward to seeing you soon.

I don’t remember where I got this, but I thought I’d share it with you.

Tomorrow Is Not Promised

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, they serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are and who you want to become.

You never know who these people may be: your neighbor, child, long lost friend, lover, or even a complete stranger who, when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.

And sometimes things happen to you and at the time they seem 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.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad 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, whether they be events, illnesses or relationships, life would be like a smoothly paved straight flat road to nowhere, safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet who affect your life and the successes and downfalls you experience create who you are, and even the bad experiences can be learned from, In fact, they are probably the poignant and important ones.

If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, forgive them, for 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 because they are teaching you to love and opening your heart and eyes to things
you would have never seen or felt without them.

Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you many 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 too. 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 either. You can make of your life anything you wish.

Create your own life and then go out and live in it! “Live Each Day As If It Were You Last…Tomorrow is Not Promised”
