Making Memories

Every day affords us the opportunity to make memories. 
~ Dr. Angela Kowitz Orobko

Every day affords us the opportunity to make memories. It is our choice to make them good ones even when facing the greatest of challenges. The solution lies in looking beyond the immediate situation. Consider these questions: What are the worst and best possible outcomes? Can I handle the worst? If not, can I get support or find resources? What is the opportunity or lesson in the present situation? How would I like this situation to be remembered?

When we are with loved ones, family and friends, we want to create the best of memories by engaging in fun and worthwhile activities. We need to resist the urge to “fix” our loved ones; and, simply let them be. We only need to love and delight in their company. A situation would be hurtful and unfair if we brought up unpleasant histories.  We only have the present moment to live. So, why not make the most of present and create wonderful memories.

Breathtaking Moments

It matters not how many breaths you take; more importantly, it is those moments that took your breath away! In fact it is those moments that are breathtaking that are most memorable. It is life’s “Kodak moments” that burn a picture in our minds, hearts and souls. Breathtaking moments need to be savored and cherished.

During those times in our lives when we are in an abyss of negative emotion, these breathtaking moments can be retrieved and enjoyed as we go back to reflect and meditate on them to recapture the positiveness in our lives. Two of those breathtaking moments for me is (was) when my husband Rick and I took our wedding vows five years ago and when I first met him six years ago. Those memories are forever stored in a special place in my heart and soul. I will cherish these 2 memories always. (Ricky, I love you, Happy Anniversary! ♥)
