five reasons

I spent a few hours with a friend at the bedside of one of her relatives who is on the brink of death yesterday. It's sobering.

It reminds me that it is good practice to keep short accounts.


Because it leaves you with fewer regrets at the end of life.

It gives you space to store up good memories rather than holding on to bad ones that just promote bitterness.

It gives you peace of mind.

It makes for better relationships.

It takes less energy to be on good terms with others.

And those seem like good reasons to me.


  1. Such good advice indeed. Love this. Peace to you, kathy

  3. Amen to that good advice! Maron

  4. Now that you've put it in a list I guess this is why I am a happier adult, because I held on to the good memories and kept a short account on the negative things of my youth.


Thanks for dropping by. I read and appreciate all your comments.
