Not a good day…

Story (11k image)

The day started with an announcement that our principal is being moved to another school next year- they one who supports Peace festivals and manners and philanthropic endeavors. The one who is loved by all but because she is so good at “building a school climate” gets to go fix a school they allowed to be broke for years. It was a sad day.

Then…there was a school bus accident. “A school bus collided with a van near Hawthorn Elementary School on Thursday, injuring four people.” So you spend your morning in crisis mode. The good news, our two students are fine and the two in the van are not life threatening. It appears the van pulled out in front of the bus- it assumed it was turning into the school but was actually going forward to finish it’s route.

Here is what I learned today…
Everything Happens For A Reason………………

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there… serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or help figure out who you are, or who you want to become.

You never know who these people may be, but when you lock eyes with them, you know that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.

And sometimes things happen to you at the time that may seem horrible, 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 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, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet affect your life. The successes and downfalls that you experience can create who you are, and the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones.

If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them because they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart to.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things.

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 to. 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. Create your own life and then go out and live it.
