People.../Personas...


People come into our lives for a reason. I do not believe that anything happens just by chance. Ever since we are born, and throughout our lives, we are in contact with people, most of whom will have a meaningful reason for being there, and some who will just be in our lives for a season, and touch it in a special way, either good or bad.

All relationships, whether positive or negative, long-lasting or short, give our lives a twist, offering something for us to learn from. When we are born, the first people we come in contact with are our parents, who nurture, love, feed, clothe, care, teach, laugh, smile, cry, scold, show, guide, share with us everything they are and have. And since then, any other person we meet has a reason for being in our lives: our teachers, friends, crushes, siblings, relatives, school friends, mates, neighbours, team mates, colleagues, lousy lovers, Mr./Mrs. Right, the professionals who look after our mental and physical health... so many people whom we usually take for granted.

I have had lots of very special and dear people in my life... still have plenty of them! Some I have lost through death; and I have had my share of negative, selfish, mean, and evil people as well. And all of them have taught me something, being the most important lesson: to believe in myself and who I am!!!! Those who don´t understand it or have not been able to see it are definitely missing out on something great!! =)

But what is of utter importance is to nurture all or relationships... never take anyone in your life for granted... they might not be there when you run to them if you have neglected them too long.

Las personas entran en nuestra vida por una razón. No creo en eso de la casualidad, mas sí en la causalidad. Desde que nacemos, y a lo largo de nuestra vida, estamos en contacto con gente de todo tipo, muchos de los cuales tendrán una razón importante para estar allí, algunos que estarán sólo por una temporada, tocando nuestra vida en una forma especial, ya sea buena o mala.

Todas las relaciones humanas, sean positivas o negativas, duraderas o cortas, hacen que nuestra vida cambie, nos ofrecen algo de lo cual aprender. Cuando nacemos, las primeras personas con quienes entramos en contacto son nuestros padres, quienes nos nutren, aman, alimentan, visten, cuidan, enseñan, sonríen, retan, muestran, guían, compartiendo con nosotros todo lo que son y tienen. Y desde ese día en adelante, toda aquella persona que conozcamos tiene un motivo por el cual ha entrado en nuestra vida: nuestros maestros, amigos, conocidos, enamorados, hermanos, familiares, compañeros de colegio, vecinos, compañeros de equipo, colegas, amantes de terror, nuestro GRAN amor, los profesionales que cuidan de nuestra salud mental y física... tanta gente que asumimos está y siempre estará.

Yo tuve mucha gente muy especial y querida en mi vida... y aún tengo mucha!!!! Algunos se han ido porque murieron; y también tuve mi cuota de gente negativa, egoísta, malvada, y falsa. Y todos me han enseñado algo, siendo la más importante lección: creer en mí misma y en quién soy!!!! Aquellos que no lo entiendan o no hayan sido capaces de verlo se están perdiendo de algo genial!! =)

Pero algo que es de suma importancia es alimentar todas nuestras relaciones... nunca des por sentado que las personas en tu vida estarán ahí siempre... pueden no estarlo cuando corras a ellos si los has ignorado demasiado tiempo.

Hi Dearest Jeannie! :)
What a wonderful text!!
It's very true that people are sent into our lives for a reason! even the nasty ones! I've also had my fair share of those and even though they were hateful at the time of their "un-masking" I can also see now that they taught me things too and I appreciate that now... they made me see mostly that the world isn't all good and to not be too trusting with people in the future.
I am so happy that you came into my life my dear friend!! and you are one of the best people I have known, even though I don't actually "know" you!! hehe
but you are a very kind and sensitive person whom I can talk about anything with, you truly are a very very dear friend, one of my best friends (who I can count in total on just one hand)
Muchos Besos Dear Jeannie! I look forward to reading more of your wonderful blog entries!!! Love Ya Lots!! xxxxxxx

Si es verdad, y eso tambien lo creo, cada persona entra en nuestras vidas por alguna razòn, y hay que aprovecharla al maximo, aveces nos cruza con gente indeseable pero otras que valen verdaderamente la pena haberlas conocido, como a vos Jeany, agradesco a la vida que te pusiera en mi camino.
Te quiero mucho.

Yes Jeannie, the most important advice is to nurture all our relationships at all times. I sometimes wonder why we take people for granted so much, and then might realize too late that we have lost them.

Joe, thank you for your comment! As human beings, we tend to take too many things for granted in our lives... the only that counts actually are the people we have met along the line, so let's do what it takes to keep them dear to us!
