And it will hurt like hell….You’re going to lose people along the way people you thought you’d never lose. People you truly believed would always be there and it’s going to hurt like hell. But that, my friend, is life. People change, relationships change.
Some evolve. Some disintegrate. Some people leave through no will of their own and that hurts the most. They didn’t want to go. But you, you will survive it all. You will. You will look back and realise that the people you need, really need, are still here, in some soul connective way.
And that the other relationships you lost along the way, have taught you something that made you better.
And that’s life. Hold close those who are in your life now and remember the ones who left, fondly. Even the ones who broke your heart.
Regret nothing. Use the feelings of pain to commit to a life here and now, a life where you take no one or nothing for granted. Where you cherish every minute with those people you love.
You’re going to lose people along the way, my friend.But that is life.Every minute counts.

Embracing change isn’t always easy, facing your fears is even harder especially when the people you anticipate supporting don’t. Here are four basic reminders that though life or people can sometimes be disappointing, you don’t have to give up.
There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.
Fearlessness is like a muscle. I know from my own life that the more I exercise it, the more natural it becomes to not let my fears run me.
Embrace what you don’t know, especially in the beginning, because what you don’t know can become your greatest asset. It ensures that you will absolutely be doing things different from everybody else.
The important thing is not being afraid to take a chance. Remember, the greatest failure is to not try. Once you find something you love to do, be the best at doing it.
“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.” ~ Jim Rohn
Happiness! Something we all crave and wish there was a little more of in the world. You can’t buy, grow it or store it in a jar. But what you can do is stop doing the things that don’t bring you happiness.
