Memory Lane

Quote of the day: 
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
-Maya Angelou

Have you ever had random memories from the past just flash through your mind as you went about your daily activities? Well I have. And just the other day my mind was taken back to many years ago -things that I had completely forgotten about, and people I could scarcely remember any more.

I have come to realise that the events in our lives happen for a reason, and the people that we come in contact with take away a part of us, just as we take away a part of them too. There are people we would love to say thank you to from the past, and there are people we would rather not see again.

That got me thinking about me, myself and I...

If I were to come in contact with everyone I've met in my lifetime from the past -just how many of them would look me in the eyes and say 'thank you,' and how many wouldn't even bother to see me again? Food for thought no doubt.

Buy beyond all these influences we've had in our individual lives, I've come to the conclusion that it's the people that made us feel special, happy and courageous -the people that gave to us without ever asking anything in return...they are the ones that always bring a smile to our faces whenever we remember them.

The memory of their efforts linger and always brings a warmth to our hearts in this sometimes cold world.

Peace & Love always!
