If we have pleasant memories of what all we have done in the past then it can be termed good life. If we have unpleasant memories of what all we have done then such a life is not a good life? What do you think?

Life is what we make it, and our choices can make our life good or bad. Bad memories do not necessarily mean you have had a bad life. if you have learned from those memories, you have improved your life. Good memories are nice to look back on, but we can't always trust them. Time and distance make everything appear different. For example, many people will talk of the 'Good Old Days.' There may have been good things happening, but we also had 2 world wars, the Wall Street Crash and the Great Depression. Learn from your memories, then leave them in the past where they belong. Nobody who lives in the past can have a really good life, because we all have to learn to live well in the present. Nice topic.

I read this some where and i would like to share this with you" Life is not measured by how many breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away".Each one has a different scale with which they measure their lives. The good and bad is up to each individual.No one can go back and make a new start.Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.I read these five simple rules to be happy. 1.Free your heart from hatred 2.Live simply 3.Free your mind from worries 4.Give more 5.Expect less So I think if we are able to abide by these simple rules we sure can lead a good life.It is we who chalk out our lives its in each one of our hands.Dissappointments in life are like road bumps, they slow you down a bit but you enjoy the smooth road afterwards.Don't stay on the bumps just move on.That's life.God Bless.Have a wonderful day.
