I feel that this is something that we all must face in life, sooner or later.

I look at life, like we live in this world - we blossom like a flower, it withers, it dies, and that's the same way it is with us growing old.


Live each day as if it was your last one.

Don't look back those years are gone.

Thank God that you are still here, regardless of how old you are. Be thankful, and move on with age.

Remember the good times
by: Sheila

I agree with Sharyn and not with the professor. But that all depends on the kind of life you've led. Some folks are lucky, like me. I have many good times to remember and good folks I've met, and I often look through my pictures to remember those good times. Oh, yes, there were bad happenings, but all in all I am happy with the way things turned out.

Carpe Diem...Seize the Day

Hi Tenise

I agree with you. We need to focus on the now and set goals for the future. Setting goals is uplifting to the spirit. Seize the Day!!!

This is in response to Tenise Thompson's post "Don't look back those years are gone".

I do not agree with this view. Sweet memories of days, months and years goe by fill our lives with joy. When we recall these memories, our hearts experience some of the joys and excitement of those times. Often, these memories take us out of or current sad mood and pep up our sagging spirit.

If your memories are sad, they still serve the purpose of giving you a lesson in life, so that you do not repeat the mistakes of the past. We can learn a lot from such sad memories.

Sooner or later

Dear Tenise,

Good morning from the great white & very cold north!

l enjoyed reading your little note, powerful but little, very good advice. And l think u r absolutely right.

We shouldn't look back, there is nothing we can change, savour the good memories & don't dwell on the bad!

What IF this & what IF that, doesn't matter NOW. most of us who read these articles are getting up there, we don't have time to ponder about the past, l'm with u, live each day as if it were your last, make plans, get a life, enjoy your loved ones & be Happy & Smile.
