I think of a car wreck when I hear the word IMPACT, but it can mean so many different things. An abusive parent can IMPACT your life in detrimental ways.
A wonderful teacher can IMPACT your life in amazing ways, a loving mother can IMPACT your life forever. You can be scarred or shaped with it. Scrap a page with the word IMPACT in it, make it strong, make it you!
Good or bad, memories affect lives in unimaginable ways. Just remember everything happens for a reason and you will always have those memories to learn from.
I created this LO as a reminder more or less to myself. I didn't add specific journaling with all the details, but it represents the friends I have lost due to death because of decisions they have made. The memories that they leave behind in my heart are wonderful, but the personal decisions they made were horrific.
It's a reminder to myself to be careful, to love life, and to never take a minute for granted. Because honestly, it could be your last.
