I’ve always had a large circle of friends. Young companions and older friends; some are really successful, others are starving artists. And of course, I’ve got a few lost souls in my group as well.

These connections are supportive, caring, and passionate and filled with love. When I think about it, my beautiful friendships are my most cherished collections. It’s within these relationships that we are able to flourish and lead a positive life.

I feel it comes from my belief that everyone comes into our life for a reason a season or a lifetime. Each and every soul union is needed and embraced.

PPA Creative Core Member, Melanie also believes all relationships are meant to happen. Enjoy her powerful story about the people in our lives.


Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away they were meant to be there. Some are there to serve some sort of purpose, some arrive to teach a lesson and some appear to help figure out who you are or who you want to become.

You never know who these people may be, possibly your roommate, neighbor, coworker, long-lost friend, lover, or even a complete stranger. Whomever they are, when you lock eyes with them, you know they will affect your life in some profound way.

It is said that  everything happens for a reason. Nothing by chance or by means of luck. It happens because it is meant to be. Illness, happiness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, successes and sheer stupidity, all occur to test the limits of your soul. Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved straight flat road leading to nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, yet dull and utterly pointless.

So thank the people you meet who bring you the success and downfalls you experience.  They are who will help you create the person you will grow to become. In fact, some of these are the most important experiences because, “Failure teaches success.”

If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them.  They have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious when you open your heart and how you must only give to the ones who are worthy of being loyal.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally. Not only because they love you, but also because in a way they are teaching you how to love. How to have trust and how to be loyal. Give them that chance to give and receive your love and believe everything in life is temporary because everything changes. That’s why it takes great courage to love, knowing it might end anytime, but having the faith that it will last forever.

Let people show you how to live, love, break free and make no boundaries, for you can accomplish anything as long as your heart is into it. This is your life, you run the show! Some will even teach you to hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell you, you are a special individual and there is no other out there the same as you. Believe in yourself, for it will be hard for others to believe in you. “If you don’t stand up for something, you will fall for anything”. You are in control and you can create your own life, so take chances, and go out and live it with absolutely no regret. “The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be”.

Most importantly, if you love someone tell him or her, for you never know what tomorrow will bring. Don’t let one moment pass because it could change you forever. Don’t ever fear life, because “What doesn’t kill you will only make you stronger”. Learn a valuable lesson in each day that you live. “The rich person is not who has the most but who needs the least”.

Life is too short to take seriously, so remember to begin each day with a smile…”Never frown, you never know who might be falling in love with your smile.”

Everyone who walks through your door will make you happy, some on the way in and some on the way out…but always remember to leave the door to your heart open because you never know what may come your way. Believe in Karma, because what comes around really does go around.

Make every day count. Appreciate every person and every moment. Take from those instances everything you possibly can because they are making you the person you are meant to be.
