I truly believe that everyone you ever meet, even for a day, has some sort of impact on your journey in life.
Some people change you as a person in a lot of ways, some people might just make you reconsider your hand shake, but everyone adds something to your life. That’s why they are there, that’s why your path crossed with theirs.
Even in the times where you wish those paths had never crossed, your life is still changed and benefited. You might learn how to deal with certain trickier characters or situations. You might learn resilience and patience.
Sometimes, I can’t quite understand why my path has been carved out to cross with another’s, and I really struggle to see the benefits or learning that it may ever bring.
But what I do know is that I have the utmost faith that coincidence does not exist. Every person I come into contact with (even that old man on the bus who gives me a toothless smile) changes, impacts and influences the choices that I make, how my day unfolds and the life that I live.
Practically wagging my tail. Like some sort of faithful dog.
What has HAPPENED to me?!
