Chapter 10, Page 5, Book 13

Remember the good times. Live through the bad times. Love always. Laugh often . Thank God everyday. 


Some say the  elusive secret of happiness could be as simple as remembering the good times and forgetting the regrets,  We all like remembering the good times. But sometimes it's good to remember the hard times too.  When we've really had a rough spell in our lives but survived it, it is good to remember that nothing lasts forever and things will change.

Remember the awesome and the awful because both both provoke awe. Remembering the good times can help put the bad times in perspective

Savor the good times while you have them, and know that the bad times won’t be around forever.  The good times will return.  Today’s understanding is yesterday’s heartache.



I really like the quote from your post, "Remembering the good times can help put the bad times in perspective." And I would add, vice versa.

I do think it is good to remember to bad times, not dwell on them, but do remember that, like you said Ma, we do live through them and it does help make the good times even better indeed!
