Coincidence?

“We don’t meet people by coincidence. They are meant to cross our path for a reason”

I’m in a thoughtful mood at the moment and in the past week I’ve been thinking about a lot of what seem to be random events, but actually aren’t. I’ve been thinking about the people I’ve met and the events happening in my life in the past few years and how those people or events affected me in a positive or negative way.

So many people we pass each day while going to work, doing groceries, heading back home, getting out for a walk, doing day-to-day activities and even while being online. Most people you won’t even notice, but sometimes someone stops you in your tracks long enough for you to become aware of them.
Sometimes someone is there in your life for only an hour, a week or maybe a bit longer, but even though they are there for a very short period of time, they can leave a life lasting memory. Sometimes you meet people who will stay, people who will become acquaintances. Once in a while, although this is rare, the relationship you have with an acquaintance will grow into friendship. These people are the ones to keep around.

I believe that people don’t just randomly cross your path, there’s always a reason behind it. Everything happens for a reason…If you take time to reflect you will learn a lot about yourself and it will make you grow as a person, whether the events happening in your life are positive or not. Sometimes you meet people and you right away know that they were meant to be there and sometimes it may take a while before you see the purpose or the reason behind meeting certain people. There are people you want to run away from immediately, but there are also people who will touch your heart even if they’re only there for a very short period of time. Some people will bring the best out of you, others the worst. Sometimes you meet people who will teach you a lesson, whether or not it’s a lesson you want to learn…it wakes you up and gets you thinking. Sometimes you meet people you will inspire or they will inspire you and you meet people to become a better version of yourself.  It’s all up to you to decide whether or not you allow the people you meet to come into your life and it’s up to you how to respond to the events happening.

Thinking about this all puts a smile on my face. It makes me aware of how lucky I am having a wonderful husband, children, family and friends. I am grateful…grateful for all the people who have crossed my path…whether they stayed or not or whether the events happening in my life were positive or not…it has all shaped me to who I am today.

As I’m writing this blog the music work distracts me… The music work…something that has become such a big part of my life and something I really love doing… There is a lot of work to do at the moment. One of the things that’s keeping us busy behind the scenes is the tour of The Netherlands in October… It’s still a long time before the tour starts…5 ½ months to be exact, but things like accommodation and flights already have to be booked in order to keep the costs as low as possible and to make sure that the band has a nice and comfortable place to stay. Once accommodation and flights are booked it becomes more ‘real’ and it makes us look forward to the tour!

A song to end this blog with…

Trump Card Hand

Lyrics:
I was standing in the back of the line 
Took up space so I stepped to the side
I am waiting in the shade not the light
I’ll get my chance my wings and fly

I won’t make a sound tonight
I won’t put myself in that spotlight
But I will reach for the best I can do
To prove to myself I can see this through

I had a little love but I never said
Thought it best to keep it in my head
I don’t want to be saying love has passed me by
I got to be a man about it and try
I’ve seen a little heaven when I look in your eyes

So here we are with a trump card hand
Making money from nothing, second hand land
Now I don’t see why we struggle to save
Can’t take it with us when we go to the grave

I’ve had a little luck ‘cos I’m still alive
Surely better than me should have survived
I don’t want to be saying love has passed me by
I got to be a man about it and try
I’ve seen little heaven when I look in your eyes

I see a little heaven when I look in your eyes
