Create the Best Memorial

Remember Today

A memorial is defined as “something designed to preserve the memory of a person, event, etc., as a monument or a holiday.” The word is on everyone’s lips today. This day is set aside for the very purpose of remembering.

As if any human mind needs to be reminded of the past.

Our lives are a compilation of past events and remembrances. We use those memories constantly to justify our beliefs and to dictate our actions. Some of us choose to live in those “good old days” and discount the importance of the Now, of the moment we are in.

The events of our past are effective as tools for learning. What did we do in the past that brought us closer to our goals? Remembering that action will help us continue to succeed.

What misstep in our past produced an unfortunate result? The lesson we learned is always good to remember. Staying mired in the bad feelings, thoughts of inadequacy, of hopelessness, do not serve our highest good.

Allowing ourselves to live fearfully because of a past event will color our present choices with a veil of negativity. Keep the wheat; let go of the chaff.

As noted by Edmund Burke, “Those who don’t know history are destined to repeat it.”
Remember and honor those today who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. Celebrate all who continue to represent your interests.

Use the Now of this day to put those valuable lessons to use and move forward to create your life as a testament to the good that has been accomplished by those who have gone before you.

Your life, well lived is the finest Memorial.

Day Twenty of the 30 Day Gratitude Challenge

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Do you remember the days of your life or the life in your days? On day twenty of the 30 Day Gratitude Challenge, I reconnected with a lifelong friend.

When we considered how long we've known each other, the days turned into years, then decades. How have all those years passed? We haven't changed.

All the life we put into those days together created memories that we will forever share. The circumstances, the surroundings, the people in our lives are not the same. The best parts of who we are-  we haven't changed. 

Day Fifteen of the 30 Day Gratitude Challenge

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Halfway point of the 30 day Gratitude Challenge. If it takes 21 days to create a habit,  what can you accomplish in fifteen?

Create a warm feeling of appreciation for fifteen people that went to their mailbox and discovered someone remembered them.

That's powerful. You have the power to celebrate someone that has touched your life. That connection with another human being is a joyous rendezvous for both of you.

Today, a person who brings sunshine to all who know her is in for a surprise.

Start your own 30 Day Gratitude Challenge. It's habit forming.
