Dear Dairy, I Am Writing A Story That Killed Me

As my birthday draws near, I find myself reflecting on life — the laughs, the love and the memories. 

#HWMH Is Coming Soon


I am a memory keeper. 

I have always been a memory keeper. I record real stories through pictures and words and I LOVE it! I love it so much that it has become a part of my job.

We all love to reminisce. That’s part of life. And as long as we keep moving forward, we realize how important it is to look back with laughter and happiness at the great blessings in our lives.

We’re defined by what we’ve learned and the people who helped shape us into the women and men we are today. The product of who we become is a powerful sum of maturity and lessons learned.

We change every day, which is why it’s even more important that we make an effort to document ourselves. Keeping memories preserved for our family, our children, our grandchildren and, in times when the light starts to go dim, for ourselves.

Throughout my life, there have been huge milestones, spectacular failures, some “blah” moments and some small wins. The older I get, the more I’ve paused at each interval to appreciate each moment for what it is. I make a mental note — and a written one — of what I’ve learned and how I can improve in my relationships, my performance and in my attitude towards life in general.

Memory is the lens through which I gaze into the future. My past experiences, emotions, observations; my sense of identity ultimately shapes my future thoughts and actions. And they are constructed through the preview of my mental memoirs.

I’m always seeking to grow and to branch out and create new experiences I can learn from. I get tired of stale ideas. Maybe you know exactly what I mean. We should constantly strive to grow, challenge old assumptions and find bold, new opportunities that open our minds and bring joy to our hearts.

I want to keep becoming more, creating more and living more. I always want to love my family and friends with all my heart, I want to make memories with people I meet on each path, and I want to touch people’s lives in a positive way. So, what about you? What are you striving for? I hope you can agree that the lessons we learn along the way leave imprints on our hearts.

That is why I am writing this Life Reflection Story. . .


New book. Coming soon. . . 

A Life Reflection Story does require some reflection. It happens when we take time to be introspective, to review our life journey so far, to ponder our life lessons, and to think about what is most important to share. . .

P.s My intention was to launch this HWMH book on my birthday but apparently, I am still writing. . .

Thanks for being a part of my story by visiting/reading the blog. You are loved.

Take a wild guess: what part of my life is worth writing a book about?
