Stepping Back

There are times when we need to step back for a moment to see if what we remember of the past was truly what it was. Our memories become foggy and may only represent what we'd like them to be. The stories that we tell, we've embellished so much that they are as accurate as they are entertaining. The emotions that we experienced are much more clearer than the experiences themselves. The happiness, as well as, the sadness are part of who we are and even if our recollection is not as good as it was when we were younger, we can still remember how we felt. Those memories will last forever. By stepping back to what was, we have a better understanding of who we were, who we are, and will become. Today, be present in all that you do. Don't lose the day by being too occupied. You can't remember the past, if you're not present today.
In learning about our culture, we may understand how we came to be...
(I have always been facinated by culture. I believe that through our culture we can learn about our past. We all come from somewhere and the experiences of our ancesters are imprinted in our genetic makeup. If we better understand who they were, we can appreciate how we've come to be. WIth the strength and courage of the generations before me, I have the opportunity to be who I am today. I never take for granted those who have helped me on my journey.)
