People create memories in order to live. Our life brings us tears, smiles and memories. The tears dry, the smiles fade, good times come and go but the memories will last forever. Good times become good memories and bad times become good lesson. They are the timeless treasures of our mind and heart. Sometimes you’ll never know the true value of moment until it becomes a memory. I’ve learned that flashbacks will always hurt. The pictures never replace, having been there, memories good or bad will bring you tears, and words can never replace those feelings. I believe that it’s like a diary that we all carry about with us because in the end, all you really have is memories. You may feel the moment may be temporary but the mind and heart never forget. There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something that defies logic, upsets your plan, and may seem crazy to each others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else; ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications and just go for it. We must appreciate life as it happens. each moments will soon pass and you will wish you had been treasured them more. I regret nothing in my life even if my past was full of hurt. I still look back and smile because it makes me who I am today. What takes us back to the past are the memories and what brings us forward is our dreams. This is what the past is for. Every experience God gives us, every person he puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see. As I get older, I find myself looking back more and often, I think that this is partially due to the fact that every year, another chapter is written in my life, and another block of memories is created. There’s just more history to ponder everytime I take a backward glance. But I also spend a lot of time looking forward, and how things are going to be in future. As you can see, without yesterday, there is no today. Learning about the past bring us all the knowledge and information in our past and also, it’s not only learning about our history but also it’s learning from our and the others mistakes. By this way, people will become more experienced and never make the same mistakes again. What takes us back to the past are the memories and what brings us forward is our dreams. Now, let’s start everyday with a new hope and have faith for a better tomorrow.
