Good Morning my friend and Happy Monday,
Here we are mid month again and time continues to fly by. What happened last week? What happened this time last month? Do you look back with fond, happy , positive memories? Or are you glad to close that chapter because it was not the best of times? If there were times of negativity then today’s letter should help you put all of that into perspective.
“Happiness is good health and bad memory.” (Ingrid Bergman)
We worry a lot about forgetting things. We make notes and tuck them in our pockets or post lists in prominent places around the house. We keep our address book or daily calendar with us at all times. We practice little tricks for remembering names and place.We would be happier, though, if we could forget some things. Let’s forget about those occasions when people betrayed us, made us cry, or sinned against us. Let’s forget about those times when we embarrassed ourselves, acted meanly, or let ourselves down. There’s no point in wallowing in such memories-and plenty of reasons to move on.
NOTE TO SELF:
My good memories I’ll keep for a long time. My bad ones I’’ll let go. (Linda Picone)
At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want. (Lao Tzu)
Don’t close the book when bad things happen in your life. Just turn the page and start a new chapter. (Lesson Learned in Life)
Sometimes it’s hard to move on, but once you do, you’ll realize it was the best decision you’ve ever made. (Zane Baker)
Sometimes, what we do and how we act are not done in a kind and positive manner, so we might justify this behavior by telling ourselves ,” I was having a bad day,” or “I did not feel well.” These memories very well may come back to haunt you, but it’s time to just let it go. Learn from it and move on. Make a conscious effort to remember the good things. I am sure many have gone that extra mile for someone, or reached out to offer help to someone in need. Try to remember how wonderful that feeling was. Those are the types of memories that help shape us into the better person we want to be. Everyone possesses many good qualities , why not keep your focus on that.
Wishing everyone a great week,
