The People 'In' Your Life

Reason, Season or Lifetime, people come into your life for a Reason, Season or a Lifetime. When you figure which role different people play in your life, you'll know exactly what to do with whom.

When someone is in your life for a Reason, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support and 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 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 just walk away. Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work done. The prayer you sent has been answered and it is now time to move on.

When people come into your life for a Season, it is because you turn has come to share, grow or learn. They may 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. It is time to rest and renew.

Lifetime relationships teach you lifetime lessons; those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your family members, your spouses, your children, your lovers. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person/people (anyway); and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life and Live it.

It is said that Love is seeing the Spirit in everyone and blind to all shortcomings and that friendships are forged from the language of the soul. It is also said that true spiritual maturity occurs when you consciously Choose not to harm anyone daily in word, thought or deed.

May your life's journey be wondrous and full of love. The world always benefits through peacemakers.
