i know i’m an annoying little pessimist, but i try to adhere to the idea that everything really does happen for a reason. natalie posted this on IG today, and i couldn’t agree more:
“It took me a long time to realize this. I used to regret having met certain people throughout my life. Wishing I never had or wishing things had happened differently. As I grow I am learning that every soul I have met helped me to grow. Every positive and negative encounter with another soul presents me with a chance to grow. The positive encounters offer support an encouragement in my growth. The negative encounters offer a chance to look within myself and strengthen love for myself and others.
I love you ♥”
if i hadn’t of talked to randy at the payphone in high school, maybe i might not be a web developer – and i’d be reeeeeally lost in life. if i hadn’t become a web developer/graphic designer, i wouldn’t have oscar (i got my cat from a guy i used to work for temporarily in 2005). countless lessons, people, chances, opportunities (career, freelance, jewelry), etc. have come in and out of my life from whatever choices i made after meeting people. for the most part, i wouldn’t have it any other way. i just wish i knew what the point is for each person.
i don’t think meeting people is for nothing, it’s the only magic i believe in within this short live i’ve been given.
anyway, i love this. if you entered my life in a positive light, i thank you (i might even love you). ♥
