" Time is a gift for us to share with those we love, to make special memories that will last a lifetime. Remember, time shared with loved ones, is time well spent."
Copyright © 2005 Elaine Harper
I work as a receptionist at a Health care facility and I see many changes in individuals' lives. One minute they are alive and well and then they are gone. I also very recently lost my mother but I am grateful for the special memories we shared. I encourage everyone to spend time with your loved ones and make the most of each moment. Life truly is precious.

" Impeccability stems from learning from your mistakes."
Copyright © 2005 Danny Sandoval
Writing downs my thoughts one day, I just wrote this truthful way of being. I always want to see people happy, especially at the workplace. I was pretty much assessing myself and work ethics.

When said, I think,
"Why did she say?"
When not said, I think,
"Why didn't she say?"

When asked, I think,
"Why does she ask?"
But when she keeps herself calm, I think,
"Why didn't she ask?

Don't fail to ask for and say something.
Most of the times, it falls in your positive side.

" Don't ever become victim of your own image. Always remember even your image has ample scope to change and to expect the best out of the given situation. So don't let your image outweigh your own instincts and judgments you are having at this present moment."
Written in 2005 by Priyanka D. Teredesai --- Maharashtra, India
What I have observed is whatever way we are, we create an image of ourselves for society. This image is the one which we create through our nature and behavioral patterns. But as time progresses, this image starts shadowing the way we react or behave. This is an erratic property of ourselves that tells us that I should not try this, because my image will get spoiled and the best way is just to remaining glued to our image. We can't even accept our faults with an open mind due to this self-imposed thing. Our past makes our image. The present and the future are not at all involved in building this image. So we have to give thought --- Do we create our image or does our image pressurize us as to how to behave? (in the present)

" When you die, the only thing you can take with you are your memories so make every moment worth remembering. The next time you drink to dull out pain and stress, think about how hazy those memories will be when you're dead. Live your life in a way that you will feel every joy and every pain, big or small, clearly. For in death, this will be your only means of living."

I wrote this quote while I was pregnant with my first child, who is now almost 4 months old. Before I met the father of my baby girl, I was addicted to alcohol and a form of drugs. I was really headed down the wrong path. I had put an end to the drugs before I met my fiancée, but I was still drinking when I met him. With his help and the inspiration of becoming a Mother, I put an end to drinking as well; realizing that there were things in life that were worth remembering and I didn't want to forget a second of it, just because of painful memories from the past. I just had to let them go in order to live my current life to the fullest and be able to carry those memories with me forever.
