Leave an impression that you'll be able to live with


Quote of the day: 
Experience had taught me that even the most precious memories fade with the passage of time.
-Nicholas Sparks





The other night I lay awake staring into almost pitch darkness, different shadows hiding behind curtains. It was the type of night where sleep is evasive and with no particular thought dominating my mind. I suddenly found myself awake -I tend to be more of a light sleeper who can't bear any distinct sound.

While staring into nothingness, I attempt to think of all those I've crossed paths with in life, and one thing I was quick to acknowledge is that those who left an impression on me were at the front of my imaginary line and self directed film with various actors. Cuts and edits, acts and frames, abstracts and 3-D visions. I recollect moments and events, most obscured due to the passage of time but its they made me feel that lingers on. From the teacher who believed in my abilities, to authentic friends who journeyed with me through thick and thin, and not to forget selfless and hardworking parents who went over and beyond to be supportive. The list is of course vast, and also includes individuals who work tirelessly to help shape the world into a much better place.

This got me thinking about making lasting impressions in life and being a positive influence to people. I always believe that showing kindness to everyone is one way to leave an impression -it shows a great deal of respect, and happiness which is usually contagious in more ways that we can ever imagine.

One day you will just be a memory to someone. Would you rather be a good or a bad one? Right now you are making the memories that you will have to live with later. Live, love, learn and repeat.

So the next time you are unable to sleep, reach into your memory store and reflect.


 Peace. Love. Light*

  1. Hi Blogoratti ... so true - we need to remember that when we go - and we never know when that will be - we don't want to depart this world with bad vibes around for everyone to remember ... being humble and helpful - would be two things essential for just being ...

    Cheers Hilary

  3. Very true until someone tries to take advantage of that kindness. Then I smile and walk away. Drama is not what any of us needs in our lives. Kindness works for me.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  7. It's an interesting choice. Shall I dredge up dormant memories and persons long forgotten or plan for the sunrise.

  8. A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes & went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father pacing in the hall waiting for the doctor. On seeing him, the dad yelled:
    “Why did U take all this time to come? Don’t U know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t U have any sense of responsibility?”

    Th…e doctor smiled & said:
    “I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital & I came as fast as I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”

    “Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would U calm down? If your own son dies now what will U do??” said the father angrily

    The doctor smiled again & replied... Read more...

  9. True words my dear. Kindness is such a beautiful virtue. Sometimes we get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, we worry so much and channel our energies towards material achievements....and in the course of all that we tend to forget to make a lasting impact in the lives of others through acts of kindness, love and compassion. Your posts are always great reminders. Thank you for this.

    Have a great weekend.

  10. This quote got to me because I am thinking of my mom who's memories are disappearing. We are human so there are people who will have unkind memories but we need to do the best we can to be as kind to ourselves and the. To others. Once we can do our best to be kind to ourselves we can then truly be the best we can be to others. I would much rather be remembered as someone who has helped others, been there for others and made them smile

  11. This is a wonderful post. You never know who will take away that good impression. I am a teacher and it surprises me what kids really connect with me. You just never know who it is going to be, so you need to make a best impression always. But be your self too! Happy weekend. Hugs-Erika

  13. I stopped by to thank you for visiting my blog and got caught up in yours. I especially appreciated the mini-tour of England.

    Of course, these thoughts were especially poignant, because I've been reviewing a post I wrote four years ago on bullying. I applaud you for this thought provoking advice that definitely mirrors my own. It never hurts to be the kindest person you can possibly be.

  14. I used to sleep like a log but as I age, I became a light-sleeper and sleep less too. Be the person what we want others to be.

  15. Thank you for sharing your uplifting and insightful observations!
    It takes so little oftentimes to be kind even to strangers.
    I offer my smile as a gesture of kindness at least everywhere I go.
    Have a lovely weekend!

  16. A very thoughtful post ...
    Kindness being helpful to others are both good.

    Let's do our best to leave good memories.

    All the best Jan

  17. I often have sleepless nights and that is when the mind wanders to those places and people I've met in life. Our lives are a giant movie and we are constantly making memories. I think we learn in the journey so there may be a mixture of good and bad memories which is what creates the story. I choose the frequency of love as kindness goes a long way!

    Peace, love and light!

  18. I, too often have sleepless nights but it seems when I am tired often the bad memories take over instead of the good memories. Still, I try to reach back and keep the more positive thoughts in my mind. The problem of aging, (I am in my 60s) is that some of the older memories just fade away and are very seldom thought of.

    I love your comments about leaving a lasting positive impression on people. Kindness seems to be on the wain. Wish more people thought like you do.

  19. What kind of memory would I rather be, a good or a bad one? I definitely want to be a good memory. Right now I spend every waking minute with loved ones making memories that will warm their hearts and bring a smile to their faces every time they think of me. I keep a pleasant face in public and say hello to strangers I pass by.

    Thank you for sharing this inspirational post, I'm glad I made it by to read this today.

  21. Love that opening quote.
    We will someday fade away. What's important is leaving an important and good impact to those we interact with. The echo of our good deeds will stay.

  23. Best spell caster of the year revealed by google. save your crumbling marriage now.

    BEST AND GENUINE SPELL CASTER ONLINE TO HELP SAVE BROKEN MARRIAGE AND BROKEN RELATIONSHIP
    Am Jerry miler, I live in London, and I’m happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, to the extent that she left the house with our kids to her parents' for almost 5 months. All efforts to bring them back proved abortive. Friends and Family were all in concern and my very close mate gave me an advice concerning a spell caster, and he quote; “There’s someone who can handle your situation, he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spiritual matters, I searched for a spell caster on the internet, his advert was everywhere, i found his number and called him on his mobile number +2347052958531. Although I never believed in spell casting, but he convinced me and I had no choice than to follow his advice, because I never dream of losing my lovely wife and I was desperate. So I did all what he told me to do and i did. He told me that I’ll get my wife back in two days after the spell is completed. I was skeptical. He casted the spell for me and i was so anxious waiting to see or hear from her, until the second day when my wife called and said she was coming HOME…..It was like a joke to me!!! That’s how I got my family back through spiritual means and our relationship is now stronger than ever. One of the price I was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this, can always be solved by Dr Ewan. And this is his email too if you wish to contact him and solve your problem too covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com , my advice to you out there is to visit this great Dr Ewan and tell him your problems. He's capable of handling anything spiritual and spell casting. Thanks a lot for saving my marriage. covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com. You can also add him up on watsapp on +2349057353987, you can also call him on his mobile number +2347052958531

  25. It was interesting not only to read this post, but also all the comments that followed. I would hope that we would all like to leave favorable and lasting memories behind. Sadly, we will never know for sure as we will not be here to know. So, the best we can do is to do our best to be kind, patient and loving which admittedly is sometimes hard even with the best intentions.

  26. We would all love to be remembered by our deeds. True, action speaks louder than words :-)

  28. What else can i say rather than to thank Doctor Okpamen who God used to reunite my marriage. Each day of my life, i ask God to bless Dr. Okpamen for he has made my life complete by bringing back my husband to me and for this reason, i made a vow to my self that i will testify on the internet to let the world know that Dr. Okpamen is a God on Earth. My husband and i had a fight for three days which led to our divorce. On this faithful day, i came across a testimony of how Dr. Okpamen helped a lady in getting back her lover. So, i contacted him and explained to him and he told me that my days of sorrows are over that my husband will come back to me within 12 to 16 hours.. Could you believe it, my husband came home begging that he needs me back. Do you need any kind of help? Contact him now via email: ( Doctorokpamenspelltemple@hotmail.com ), Website: http://doctorokpamenpowerfulspelltemple.webs.com, call and whatsapp him via +2348135254384 OR for more confirmation call or text me on my cell# +1 (914) 517-3229.

  29. I live for posts like these. Everytime I speak to my GodDaughter's parents, they always tell me how thoughtful I am.
    In addition to the material things I give my Goddaughter, I called her recently to ask if she was ready for the beginning of the school year. That small thing made her parents so happy, which makes me happy.
    I'm writing this as I'm waiting for a cake to finish baking. A friend is at home recuperating from a motorcycle accident, and he's on crutches. I know he likes my cakes ( his parents beat me to ordering groceries via Amazon Fresh) so I'm baking him one. He doesn't know it yet, but he'll be pleasantly surprised.


    Good post. Hope you're having a good week.

  34. Miss seeing around, and hope you're doing well! In these days of Social Media, we can sometimes be quick to hit that send button for all to see that is less than kind. I agree, that It's better to be remembered for good works. Great words of wisdom! Hugs...RO

  39. I believe in destiny, I also believe I can express my pain or broken heart to anyone whom my instinct guides me to because am not weak or less a human regardless of the criticism I might face from close friends and family. It came to a point in life that I realized I have been losing important people in my life. Just within 3 years, I have already been in 14 relationships and none of them lasted for a month because of my toxic attitude. People keep coming and leaving, and I search for another replacement leaving behind moment we had together thinking that it was the best life to live, until it started to hurt me slowly and making me feeling like am dominated by an evil spirit.
    It is unexplainable how my instinct lead me to King Omituko love solution with this email: |omitukolovesolution@gmail.com| when the future was playing some tricks on me after I was conned by some known spell doctors. I never felt so happy until I tasted the powers of Omituko love spell. Contacting him for help really changed my life and liberated me from emotional bondage. I have now found true love and we have been dating for over 6 months, that’s why am sharing this touchy review. His love spell is simply amazing.

    This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her.

This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me.
