A Reason, A Season & A Lifetime

A friend forwarded this to me today, and I thought I'd share it here.

A Reason ...

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for 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 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 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 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.

A Season ...

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.

A Lifetime ...

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.

My dear friends, thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

It Might Be You

Something's telling me it might be you ...

... all of my life.

All About The Meme

Haven't done any memes in a while. And since I have run out of things to blog about, I've decided to steal a meme from a random blog and use it as my own. Oh yeah, I'm at the office. So sue me if I decide not to do any work this morning.

So yeah, here goes nothing ...

Favourite Actor: Hugh Jackman, 'cos he's HA-A-A-WT!
Favourite Actress: Don't have a particular favourite. Sarah Jessica Parker's not bad. I love the way she flicks her hair with her hand. I tried picking it up, but I ended up looking like I'm just wiping sweat off my forehead with the back of my hand. Oh well. They don't call 'em celebrities for nothin'.

First Kiss: Age 18, with my first boyfriend
First Crush: Jason; I was 11, we took the same schoolbus, went to the same church, but he doesn't know I exist.

First Vehicle I Drove: Mum's Proton Iswara
