The sad thing is that, I’m digging this box because I’m looking for a document that will support a stupid system that halted something that I had worked so hard for a couple of weeks. I was feeling upset and frustrated while doing the digging.
I realized there are lots of things in this box that I really really love. They are of no financial values. Just the silly stuff that I can’t take away so I just keep them. As I picked and tousled things, I came across some small notebooks where I used to write anything that I can think of at the moment. One of the small notebooks is a favorite since college days. It is covered with my stamp collections and in it are my favorite quotations, prose, phrases and some poems that I personally wrote.
I found this beautiful prose and I want to share this to all of 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 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 them.
Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may 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 Your Last… Tomorrow is Not Promised”I'm glad I found this prose and I think it's part of the "everything happens for a reason". It lighten up my heart and somehow uplifted my spirit. I hope this will do the same to you, happy reading!
Have a great week ahead everyone! Have a great life!
