Feeling Lost? Here's Why You're Not.

What if I told you that you are exactly where you need to be? That you have been exactly where you needed to be to be brought to this present moment? It was all no accident. It all needed to happen.

Life is full of exponential factors, and while some things may be certain, there is always the possibility that anything can happen. Absolutely anything. The universe is wonderfully ridiculous and wild with opportunities and possibilities.

You have a purpose. There are reasons why you are right there right now. You may not know what those reasons are, but they're there. It may take years for you to understand the full significance of your current situation, but trust me, it's there.

One cool thing about purpose is that you get to define it. Other people can tell you what they think your purpose is, but it's flawed because they're not you. You're in charge of your life, not them. You are the one experiencing every little detail of your life, which automatically makes you the expert of yourself. As good as other people's intentions may be, your life, its meaning and purpose, is ultimately defined by you.

A Reminder for Whenever You Feel Low

Hello Friend,

Just in case you need a reminder, I'd like to tell you that you are important. No matter what life situation you're in or how other people have made you feel, you are undeniably and irrevocably important.

You are here on this earth. Chances are you're overall better off now than you were years ago. If not, hold on tight; it'll get better.

Life always will throw obstacles and challenges your way. It does that to everyone. Every successful person has had to face, deal with, and put in the effort to overcome life's challenges. As life goes on, we tend to get better at dealing with these things.

If anyone disrespected you, or insulted you entirely, it's not your fault. It's usually their own issues. They are dealing with something that you possibly don't know about and are lashing out towards others. They may be good people who had a bad day/week/month. I know it's easier said than done, but you need to forgive (not forget) and move on. You owe it to yourself to move past it.

Let me say it again: you are important. There is no one else in this world just like you. Even if you're an identical twin (or even a triplet), you have your unique experiences that make you you. Your character and how others perceive you are shaped by who you are and what you do.

And so my friend, I wish that you never forget how important you are, especially on the days that it's easy to forget.

Sincerely,

Roderick
