Some interesting thoughts from a variety of places, about memoir writing.
We have just one life to find what makes us happy. What memories do we want to share with generations to come? I will not chain myself to the same office chair or job for the next thirty years. To some that is living but to me it is not. Moving to an island worked for me.
I craved adventure. And to my family’s dismay, the unknown. But to me, the unknown, meant endless possibilities. Seeing the world through bright, optimistic eyes.
I don’t want my life mapped out. I want it to rise and fall with every chance I take.
I have failed as much as I have succeeded. I have hated the universe as much as I have praised it. But at the end of the day, when the sun sets and the moon shines bright, that’s when you reflect. What did I do today that brought a smile to my face and satisfaction to my soul?
I like to wonder – what can I do tomorrow to shine my light brighter?
