A Reason, A Season, or a Lifetime

I firmly believe that everyone in my life is a Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime. Sometimes it takes a while to figure out why, other times it's readily apparent. I've been rocked by a friendship I thought was a "Lifetime". I'm realizing that a current relationship is ... a "Reason" or a "Season". I'm still trying to figure out what. But it's time to turn the page, start the next chapter. It sort of sucks. It's sad to realize it won't end up being a "Lifetime", but it's refreshing to know that whatever need was there, seems to have been fulfilled. I am pretty sure I have it figured out, but maybe I don't. Maybe I'm all wrong. I'm hoping that turning the page and starting the next chapter with a pristine page will be push I need in other areas.

"It is said that love is blind, but friendship is clairvoyant" I'm thankful beyond belief for the lifetime, true friendships I have made, that exist, and those friendships I'm hopeful will be lifetime friendships.

A Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime

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

When 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.

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.
