People come into our lives for two reasons: to teach us lessons and to enrich us with their wisdom and personality.
Obviously, there are more of those who teach us lessons: painful, eye-opening, life-changing lessons. If we learn from it and adjust ourselves accordingly, we evolve. We become stronger and smarter, we learn to live in today and to have no regrets.
However, you may just be so lucky to encounter an amazing human being who, even if they only stay in your life for a brief moment, will leave an unforgettable footprint. They are rare, almost non existent. They breathe life back into you, reinvigorate you and put things in perspective. As as result of your interactions, you are energized and inspired, more determined to achieve great things, your best qualities resurface and are suddenly amplified. You feel sane again and remember how to smile. If you have been blessed to come across such a person, be sure to let them know just how awesome they are. Cherish good people, they are the only ones worth your while! And you never know – they may like your ‘improved’ persona enough to stick around.
