“HOW TO” Be grateful for the people who have crossed your path (Life lesson #19)

downloadThose people that came into your life and for whatever reason left. Those people who are in your life right now driving you crazy or those who are bringing out the best in you. In my life, everyone who I’ve met, whether it was an intimate relationship, a friendship, a child, and yes even an ex….has had a spiritual purpose in my life. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! 🙂 I have spent time thinking of everyone who has influenced my life….and our paths have crossed for a reason. Now if you’re pissed at the person, sometimes it’s hard to figure out what that reason is…but spend some time away from them, get in a good place, and then re-visit…believe me you’ll find it:) But holding on to anger for ANY person is just hurting yourself. Easier said than done, I know. But if you can do this for yourself, it will kind of make it okay…kind of make you realize it all made sense.

Maybe that person came into your life to teach you something about yourself. Maybe to make you understand that you have to set boundaries….maybe to teach you that if they say hurtful things, that you need to remember how amazing your spirit truly is and to not let anyone take that away from you no matter what. Maybe they came into your life to make you look in a mirror and force you to see your beauty…maybe to remind you to  play the music you still have inside you….maybe to inspire you in a variety of ways that you’ve never thought of till you had met them….maybe just to remind you to be silly, laugh and to not take yourself and life so seriously! Maybe you didn’t feel such a shift in your life when crossing paths with someone, but maybe it was for you to have and impact on them that time and you’ll never even know what it is unless they tell you.  Whatever the reason, there is always a reason….whether it was for “a reason, season or lifetime.”  Whatever the amount of time and whoever they were, I encourage you to reflect back and find that reason, and make peace with that person in your mind. All relationships are spiritual on some level…that’s how I look at in in my life anyway 🙂

That being said, thanks for reading this and crossing my path… I hope I’ve been able to throw out to you some different perspectives on life that have made you shift a little in a way that makes you happy…just sayin…. 🙂
