A funny title you may think and I agree it is. We are all people of one kind or another and we all like different things, we do different things and we react differently to all sorts of things. We have different memories and we even remember differently the events that we have shared with other people. We see things differently and describe things differently, yet we are all people. Surely, there are only so many things that you can do with 2 eyes, 2 ears a nose and a mouth and yet we all look different.

Recently I have been thinking about why we meet people and what impact they have on our lives. I am a big believer in 'things happen for a reason' and 'people come into our lives for a particular reason' and it may not always be the reason that we think.
I believe the answers are sometimes not obvious or even that we don't have them but we have to trust our instincts because without a book to guide us through life our instincts are all we have. We know what is best for us personally. A certain person may come into your life, mix it all up and go, leaving you wondering what the hell happened there.? Maybe one day the answer will become apparent, but stop looking for it, it will make itself known if we are meant to know. Dust yourself off, give the instincts a clean and set off again.

Life is like writing a book, you start with a blank piece of paper. You decide what you want and where you want to go and with whom you will do these things. Speaking from experience of writing my books, you quite happily carry on writing away building up your book which has become your life and then suddenly something is not right. This is the point that you must deal with it, because if you carry on thinking you will eventually get back on track you may not. If it isn't right. Stop and change it. This is your instinct telling you it is not right.

Characters come and go in my books and if they no longer serve a purpose it is time to get rid but they have played a part in the book getting to where it is going and the same thing applies in our lives. When someone leaves your life, they have played their part in getting you to where you are, whether a good place or bad, but it all makes you the person you have become. The characters in the books alive or dead have all played some part in the end of the book.

The people who are in your life right now, are meant to be there.

Keep reading - Andy
