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
