A funny thing happened on the way to…. Each one of us can fill in the blanks, remembering an amusing situation in our lives. The memory continues as a source of warmth and smiles. We, often, relive the event with family and friends as if it happened yesterday.
During our lives we accumulate many memories; some amusing, some sad. We talk about making memories; we keep scrapbooks and photo albums, we write in journals and diaries, constantly preserving our memories. Has it occurred to you that we have control over the outcome of our memories?
By the choice of our words, our actions and reactions and our attitude, we shape our memories. The memories we will have many years down life’s road are the memories we choose to create today. Even in the worse situation, we can choose our actions. Sometimes, we react before we can think. In those situations, we still have a choice. We can choose to apologize.
As we begin each day, let us be aware that we will be creating memories each step of the way. How those memories turn out, is up to each of us.
