People Come Into Your Life For A Reason

Posted on

People come into your path for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will know what to do with that person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a dificulty…
To provide you with guidance and support…
To aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually…
They may seem like they are a godsend, and they are.
They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then without any wrongdoing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die…
Sometimes they walk away…
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand….
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled…
Their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has now been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON.
Because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons.
Things you must build upon to have a solid emotional foundation.
Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind, but friendship is clairvoyant.
Thank you for being a part of my life…
Whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime

Someone emailed me this poem a long time ago.. if i’m not mistaken, it was in powerpoint with lots of beautiful images of amazing sceneries and flowers.

I had almost forgotten about the poem.. but today, as I was driving from home to work, I was driving behind a Viva with an L sign. I was brought back to the time when I first attended the 5 [or was it 8] hours course at the driving school some 11 years ago. I remembered the course being long and boring, but there was this girl, perhaps a yr younger than I, sitting next to me. She was very friendly and she became my best friend during the whole 8hrs. After the course ended, I never saw her again. I couldn’t help but wondered where she is now… gosh! I don’t even remember her face – and her name.. 😐 All I remembered was that she was very friendly and she already knew how to drive before she went to the course.

May be she came into my life for a reason – so that I’ll have someone to have lunch with, to make the course less boring than it actually is.. just someone to keep me company.. my need has been met, her work is done.. that’s why she was never in my life again.

When I think about her, I kinda miss her actually..

So to the girl I met at the driving school : Thank you for being a part of my life…

And then, after her, I was suddenly reminded of all the people who I’ve met briefly, but left a huge footprints in my heart..

The charming tall guy I met back in my Uni years when we both attended some Christian (RC) Student gathering in KL. He was a Sabahan too. Very friendly and told me a lot of interesting stories. He was my bestfriend for the whole weekend and I think I had a huge crush on him at that time haha.. And I never saw him again… until at cousin’s engagement a few years ago. I’m sure it was him, but I’m not sure if he remembers me :-) My heart did skip a beat – not because I still have a crush on him, ok.. more like surprised  because I haven’t seen him for maybe 12 years, and sometimes I did wonder what has happened to him.. of course when you saw the person, the heart did skip a beat for his footprints are still on my heart 😀

To the charming tall guy : Thank you for being a part of my life…

The industrial trainee attached to the private company I worked with 11 years ago. She is actually very petite and cute! She was seated behind me and we instantly became good friends. I was being all big-sister-ly to her when soon after, I found out, she was actually 5 years older than I! I felt a bit awkward at first.. Anyway, she was a very very good friend and after she finished her industrial trainings, we keep in touch for a while, then I lost her phone number. Lost touch for a good 5-6 years, the I found her again on FB :-)

To the cute industrial trainee : Thank you for being a part of my life…

The Sarawakian Girl  whom I met when I went to report duty at W.P.Putrajaya 9 yrs ago. Was lucky enough back then when I manage to get hired [by the government] on my first SPA 8 interview. We had a 1 day orientation and she was so excited to become my housemate. She was my bestfriend during the whole day. Unfortunately, I am the only one who got posted to Putrajaya, whereas the rest got posted to their own hometown – including Sarawakian Girl :-(

Like the girl at the driving school, I don’t remember her name, or even her face. All I can remember about her – except for where she’s from – was that she’s quite tall and she loves karaoke :-)

So to the Sarawakian Girl : Thank you for being a part of my life…

And also to all the others I didn’t mention today, this poem is for you.

Thank you for being a part of my life…
Whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime :-)
