For a reason, a season or a lifetime

One of my colleagues has always been like an angel to me. Back in April 2009, she sent me the text that you'll read in a moment. I'm sure it will affect you as much as it does for me (not surprising that I kept it during all that time and that I am just to rediscover it in doing some clean up through my email box! This was meant to be so.)! After you'll have finished reading it, you will also know the reason why it has reached you today. Here it goes. Enjoy!

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 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.

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.

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


P.S. Thank you C. for your love and kindness! ♥


  1. I love it. Seriously, I love it a lot!! Thanks for sharing this, Marie-Eve! This is so beautifully expressed and explained about our relationship with others. As I read this, I imagined many people's faces. Some are still with me, some are gone. How grateful that I was able to meet with those people! It is so wonderful to read this before bed.

    Thanks my dear friend. I've never met you in person yet, but I know you by heart already :)

    Have a beautiful week!!

    Love and gratitude,


  2. You are so welcome, sister!
    I'm glad to know that this text reached someone else's heart. Since I've rediscovered it, I know that its essence will now be with me everywhere I'll go. It has consolidated a wise advice given by a new friend this summer.

    Funny isn't it? How far and so close in the mean time! Know that it makes the two of us to be grateful for this special connection!

    Much love and somersaults in the colorful leaves of automn! ☼
