Why I am Thankful for Everyone in my Life

Thank you to the owner of this inspiring video!

I find it amazing how our lives are intertwined, such that somewhere and sometime in our journey, either we share the same path or we meet at a crossroad people, who we never thought would have a profound impact in our lives. 

If there is one thing I have consistently been grateful for, that's the gift of having the people I love and care about and everyone I meet at any point in my walk. I just could not and would not imagine going through life without them. It would be like a dull sky without the much-needed sunshine. There is always a time when I end up being helped by someone, in one way or another. 

Come to think of it, I wonder how one can live for himself alone. Humans are inherently relational beings. Shutting your door to everyone else is like precluding yourself from experiencing the beautiful things in life. No matter what reason you may have for feeling alienated or distant from the world, no matter how hurt you may have felt, I believe that life will never run out of reasons to give you to open yourself again. I have known and learned from people who have been through immense pain and suffering yet still find something to be thankful for. I am just awe-inspired by these resilient souls.

I always believe that every person who passes by or stays in our life was sent with a purpose. Every single one of them. Either we need to learn something from them, or we need to serve a purpose in their lives. And this is the very reason why I always, always love to meet and know people and their stories. There are just so many things that we can share and learn from each other! I often fall in love with souls who are open and unafraid to bare their stories. Rawness is what we need in the world today! 

For whatever purpose the people I now have or even those who came by and left have in my life, I am truly grateful that I have shared this journey with them, with you all.

So, I say "THANK YOU" to each one of YOU! I hope I am making a difference in your life too, somehow. :)

Flowers for y'all :D


  1. I agree with you about how everyone in our life has a purpose, even those who hurt us. Thank you, too!

  2. So beautifully said. Sometimes these paths we cross are brief moments, but even then there is something that happens that benefits one or the other person in some way, often we may not realize it until a long time later, sometimes we never realize it, but something said or done still has a way of impacting us in some capacity.

    1. agree with you. indeed, the most amazing are those that you met for a short while but left a lasting impact in your person...

      thank you for dropping by!

  3. We are meant to love and be loved. The Bible tells us that we must love ourselves before we can love another. We live in a world where so many are not happy and it's sad. These individuals look to others for happiness when happiness must begin within. You're right we are built by design to connect with others on an intimate level as a friend, lover, sister, daughter, mother, or wife. Building walls to distant oneself only brings pain. It's good to love yourself, so you can give love and be loved. I agree there's a reason for every person who graces our path. God has a purpose, either to be lead or to led that relationship toward greatness. It's nice to meet you this morning. I didn't find you in April during the A2Z challenge, but I found you on the RoadTrip and am happy that I did. Have a wonderful day!


    1. very well said Cathy. what you said reminds me of what Mother Theresa rightly said that there is a far greater hunger in the world today than the hunger for bread, and that is the hunger for love..

  4. I, too, believe that every person who comes into our lives comes in with a specific purpose. I often contemplate and journal about what those reasons are.
    Stopping by on the AtoZ Road Trip - love the name of your blog!
