Your Moment…. Your Life….. Your Lesson



We all go through moments of ups and downs, trials and tribulations, and not to forget disappointments. But you also have moments of joy and happiness, peace, love and inspirations.

When you sit back and add all these moments together, you realise it creates this wonderful thing call Life…. Your Life…

Every person has their own unique story to tell… an uncompleted, complicated story of their moments… completion only comes when you take that last breath….

Until you take the last breath, moments being thrown in your path should be a lesson.. a lesson that you should never regret.

I hope that I am moulding my two precious beings to always see the lesson, to stay positive, to understand that nothing lasts forever, to be brave enough to accept, and most importantly that whatever moments  we go through both individually and as a family  that it builds us into stronger and better people.

I know that  there are times when it can be difficult to understand some of the Life Lessons that come our way. Some things are not meant to be understood immediately. They sometimes need to be accepted, and in time they will be understood.

I was cleaning out my e-mails last night (yes I had nothing better to do while my sick baby girl was having a snooze on my lap)….

anyways I found these interesting yet true quotes and I thought I would share them

As a reminder of some of the Lessons that we learn along the way


And to remember never to regret any moment that we experience in this Life… as they all have a part to play in making us who we are ….


Yes, everything does happens for a reason…. so be brave enough to face whatever is thrown your way… there is a reason that you are going through it at this very moment…..try and find the lesson that it is teaching


Sometimes things will happen to you that may seem  painful or unfair at first, but in time you will understand that without these difficult moments, whatever they may be, you would have never realised your true potential, your own strength,  or your heart!

Remember that it is moments like these that are most learned from…. everything happens for a reason, nothing is by accident, nothing is by chance and nothing is in vain


People will come into your life to serve some sort of purpose,  to teach you a lesson, to help you , to nurture you, to  love you, to show you who you really are.

You never know who these people may be (a neighbour,  a colleague, a long-lost friend, or even a complete stranger .. oh wait, these are Facebook friends right?), but when your soul touches theirs, you know at that  moment that they will affect your life in some way….

Cherish them, because they have an important lesson to teach you…


If you feel hurt, betrayed, or have your heart-broken , forgive for this has helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious.

Things change so that you can let go, things go wrong so that you can learn, things go right so that you can appreciate.

Fall in love and love unconditionally, as this is teaching you how to open your heart, how to be kind and how to trust


Appreciate each moment and take from those moments everything you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again. Each moment shapes every detail about you, if you were to reverse any of them, you would not be the person you are.

So Live, Make Mistakes, have wonderful memories… But Never Ever second guess who you are…. where you have been…. and where it is your going…. Stay true to yourself


Every moment will be different, some exciting , some difficult… just believe …. 

believe that this is where you are meant to be…. whatever happens next  is all up to you…. with a positive attitude, a brave heart and a strong mind… anything is possible


You only have one chance to live this life (unless you a cat… then you have 9… how cool), but for us humans, let’s live it with no fear of taking the chance… having faith in ourselves, believing that with a good heart and good intentions…. Life is going to be everything it should be and more…..

This is your moment…. this is your life ….
