Personal Memoirs

I believe that life is how we see it it is. In a bright morning on a spring day, life may look like a miracle full of hope and energy. In the dark and cold morning of a winter day, life appears to be a burden to endured, if not gotten rid of. It all depends on both the overall environment one finds themselves in and the internal mood, and thus one's reflection on the former. I have had all kinds of days in my life. I have tried to reflect on some, to forget many and avoid any resemblance of other days that I do not want to see again.

In this page, I share my memoirs and reflections. I also put important lessons I learn along the way. You may find some of my views interesting in one of two ways: Either they resonate and you feel in good company or they are so absurd that you know how not to see certain aspects of life. Either way, you will have something to make you think about what goes on in the mind(s) of at least one of the people who are alive in the world now.  Click here to see more of my personal memoirs and reflections.
