Long long time ago, someone sent me an email with a short story. I do not know who originally wrote this, but it still stays in my heart and I live with the meaning that I have learnt from the story.
Since I started the master course in Luxembourg, I have met many wonderful people and I do believe that the incidents (= meeting them through courses) must have something to do with our life.
A couple weeks ago, my class had a professor who's married to a Japanese lady. The professor kindly connected me with his wife and introduced me what she (and he) does in the country where they live and they kindly gave me a permission to introduce their businesses via my blog.
Please visit their beautiful websites & take a look at their business :)
Here is a present for my friends & you, who are reading my blog right now...
People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each 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 difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrong doing 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 realise is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered. And now it is time to move on.
When 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 in order 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.
