All the cliches are true. Life is precious. Life is short. Life is not fair. Life is what you make it.
Let’s talk about it. Life is precious: it is, each moment has a memory, whether it’s a happy one or sad one, or angry one, it is a moment in time. Moments are for memory, for writing, for Memoir. Take a slice of a day, shape it into a memory, and keep it close to your heart.
Life is short: damn right it is. One second can change your life. An accident, a doctor’s report, anything that upsets the balance of your life. Don’t waste time on what could be, or should be, just take what happens and sharpen your attitude. You attitude will get you through the toughest of times. I know, I’ve been there. I wrote Behind The Mask, using moments, documenting feelings and emotions, yet my husband’s sense of humor and my attitude got me through those awful seven years.
Life is not fair. Who ever said it was. Every day is a challenge we have to meet. Sometimes it is like being in a ring, only the ten rounds are never over. You get knocked down every which way. But you have to keep going.
Because life is what you make it. Attitude, perserverance, and love and kisses can help you through anything. Writing about your life is a carthartic process, it heals.
Be thankful for every moment in time. Beef up your attitude. Take good care of yoursef. Be yourself. Love who you are, and be the best you can be.
Keep a grateful list and list everything you are grateful for. See if you can get one hundred things written down on paper. Update the list and keep updating it until you have 200 things you are grateful for.
Keep love and kisses in your life. Helene Moore
