Life Happens
Author: Braylee B

Chapter 16


The one thing that will connect us to a person for the rest of our lives. Whether the memories are good, or bad, they are ours.

People walk into our lives. And even when they walk out, whether is was a sad, angry, or happy goodbye, they left us with one thing we will never forget. Memories. Memories are something we can hold onto forever. Even after the person who gave them to us is no longer around.

Sometimes, we make memories we later regret. We make ones that hurt us when we think back on them. Ones that make us cry instead of smile. But even those memories we wish we never had, make us the person we are today. What if that moment never happened? Would you still be the same person? Maybe you think you would be 100% better if you never experienced it. But you will never know. Maybe that memory you are so desperate to get rid of, is the one that defined you. Made you a better person. Maybe now, you like to help others more. Maybe you have a better understanding of something. Maybe that experience, made you realize that life does suck, but I'm still here. I'm okay. Not all memories are good. But you have to make every moment count. So when it does become a memory, you can look back and be like, I am glad this happened.

Life isn't about going through the motions. Life is about putting yourself out there. Making mistakes. Doing something you never thought you would do. Talking to that cute guy or girl that you like instead of being shy. Helping someone who may say they are okay, but you know they aren't. Life is about finding happiness within yourself. Making the best memories you can.

So make every moment a great memory. Take every second you spend with someone and turn it into the best so that later, when they are gone, you can look at those memories and smile. No one is in our life forever. But make the most out of the time you have. Because even when they leave, you will have those memories. And those memories are the greatest things we can ask for.

In the end. Memories are all we have. Memories of every person who touched our lives. So make sure that every moment you have, is a memory you will want to remember in 50 years. Make the most of everything.
