A Lesson in Life
[00:11.35]Sometimes people come into your life
[00:13.01] and you know right away that they were meant to be there.
[00:16.66] They serve some sort of purpose, to teach you a lesson
[00:20.04]or help figure out who you are or who you want to become.
[00:25.78] You never know who these people may be—
[00:27.72]your roommate, neighbor, professor, long lost friend,
[00:32.83] lover or even a complete stranger who,
[00:36.97]when you lock eyes with them,
[00:39.38]you know that very moment that they will affect your life
[00:42.87] in some profound way.
[00:45.26]And sometimes things happen to you
[00:47.61]and at the time they may seem horrible, painful and unfair,
[00:52.40] but in reflection you realize that
[00:54.76] without overcoming those obstacles,
[00:57.83] you would have never realized your potential,
[01:00.63]strength, willpower or heart.
[01:03.93] Everything happens for a reason.
[01:06.14] Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck.
[01:10.94] Illness, injury, love, lost moments of
[01:15.75]true greatness and sheer stupidity
[01:19.24]—all occur to test the limits of your soul.
[01:22.61] Without these small tests, if they be events,
[01:26.89]illnesses or relationships,
[01:29.30]life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere,
[01:34.62]safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.
[01:39.05]The people you meet who affect your life
[01:41.83] and the successes and downfalls you experience—
[01:45.41]they are the ones who create who you are.
[01:48.16]Even the bad experiences can be learned from.
[01:51.69]Those lessons are the hardest
[01:53.97]and probably the most important ones.
[01:56.83] If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart,
[02:01.28] forgive them for they have helped you learn about trust
[02:05.01]and the importance of being cautious
[02:07.47]to whom you open your heart to.
[02:09.88] If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally,
[02:14.04] not only because they love you,
[02:16.46]but because they are teaching you to love
[02:19.01]and opening your heart and eyes to things
[02:21.49]you would have never seen or felt without them.
[02:25.19]Make every day count.
[02:27.26] Appreciate every moment
[02:29.45] and take from it everything that you possibl
