Chapter 5, Page 30, Book 13

Remember that your presence is a present to the world. 

Remember that you are a unique and unrepeatable creation. 
Remember that your life can be what you want it to be. 
 Remember to take the days just one at a time. 

Remember to count your blessings, not your troubles. 
Remember that you'll make it through whatever comes along. 
Remember that most of the answers you need are within you. 
Remember those dreams waiting to be realized. 

Remember that decisions are too important to leave to chance. 
Remember to always reach for the best that is within you. 
Remember that nothing wastes more energy than worry 
Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful
stroke of luck.

Remember that the longer you carry a grudge, the heavier it gets. 
Remember not to take things too seriously. 
Remember to laugh. 
Remember that a little love goes a long way. 

Remember that a lot goes forever. 
Remember that happiness is more often found in giving than getting. 
 Remember that life's treasures are people, not things.

May God bless your day with peace, joy and love.

Have in or be able to bring to one's mind an awareness of someone or something that one has seen, known, or experienced in the past

 We do not remember days; we remember moments. 

Cesare Pavese

Some moments in time do stand out in my life.  I remember them more than lots of others.  Some I'd like to forget, but others I'll treasure for ever.

For my own peace of mind I try only to remember the good things.  Rehashing the bad times isn't worth a moment of my time.  There are days though when I need the good memories just so I can get through the day.

Some studies have shown that the elusive secret of happiness could be as simple as remembering the good times and forgetting the regrets.  People who look at the past through rose tinted glasses are happier than those who focus on negative past experiences.

Photos and souveniers that you associate with the good times may fade away, but the joy and the happiness of those experiences live on inside of you.  It is good when you can look back and remember how good life has been, so be thankful for the good times you’ve had and the good memories you have of them. Just be careful to not hold on to the memories so tightly that you miss out on opportunities to create new experiences for you to treasure

Like fine wine and good cheese, the things we remember only get better with age.  Today I'm  remembering the good times and looking forward to better ones.  If we can't make new memories then how can we move forward. Hold yesterday close to your heart but leave it open for today.

Our memories are the only paradise from which we can never be expelled.

Jean Paul Richter
