Happy Memories and the Things We Keep to Remind Us of Them

Over the years, I've kept items that represent many beautiful memories and it always feels wonderful to be able to hold a memory in the palm of my hand.

Some items I've kept:
  • Ticket stubs from movies, concerts, fairs, etc.
  • My flower bouquet from when I was my friend's Maid-of-Honor
  • Invitations to friends' birthday parties
  • Plates, napkins, and balloons from my Sweet Sixteen
  • My first study Bible
  • the collar that my cat wore before she got sick
  • letters and cards from my friends over the years
  • Rice from my friend's wedding
  • A lock of hair from when I cut my hair to donate it to Locks of Love
What kinds of things have you held onto over the years?

Rule for Life, Rule #12

Stop saying "Life isn't fair."

I have a theory that if people would stop using the phrase "Life isn't fair" to justify their own unfair actions, life would be fairer all around.

Rule For Life, Rule #11

Make your relationships with loved ones a priority.

Everyone is busy these days. We're all in a hurry to get to our next meeting, class, or just to make it through that yellow light before it turns red. But we have to remember that we need each other. Make time to hang out with you friends and family, and make it a very regular thing. There will always be something else to hurry to, but good friends come around just a few times in a lifetime if you're lucky.

Rule For Life, Rule #10

Learn to be okay with a bad day.

We can't a expect the sky to be blue and beautiful all the time. If we didn't get some rain clouds once in a while, we'd never appreciate the sun.

Rule for Life, Rule #9

Once you have what you want, take the time to enjoy it and let it go when it's time to.

When we want something so much we can taste it, and for such a long time that it seems like we'll never get it, we sometimes react badly when we finally get it. Suddenly, instead of being happy like we should be, we find ourselves clutching to it in fear that it will go away. Unfortunately, that won't keep this elusive thing that we wanted in our arms. It will just mean that we didn't enjoy what we had when we had it.
