I Remember

By Jana Hassett

May 9, 2020

Remember who you are and where you came from. Don’t forget to remember the pain.

Remember how it felt the first time you kissed somebody full on the mouth.

Remember being so scared you peed in your pants.

Remember that day you hoped would ever end.  Remember when it did.

Remember when you were so free and alive that nothing could stand in your way. Then, suddenly, everything could.

Remember when your mother died, or when her mother died, or when a child you didn’t even know died.

Remember when parts of yourself died – or when you put them on a shelf so high you couldn’t reach them.

Now remember how to get them back.


I do .  And I’m grateful for the memories that make me who I am today  I hope your memories are good.


“Remember” written by Rachel Snyder as part of her book Words of Wisdom for Women.
