Face Book Memories

by Eurydice Mcgaughy

I truly have a love hate relationship with the fakebook. I do love how it privately and publicly allows us to recall memories. 

When I think back to my childhood memories they are hard to recollect I normally end up calling my big sis who has the memory of an elephant. The other day I was peeling sweet potatoes for our new pop up vegan restaurant and I heard my uncle Donnie's voice who is no longer with us in the flesh say  "Hey Pooh" you doing good! then he laughed. The sound of his laughter was good to hear. Like I said childhood memories are very faint. Even so I do remember one time I cut my foot on a piece of glass as child and he was there. I cried heavily seeing so much blood and he soothed my fears and then gave me money. He'd done it again I thought! sooth my fears about opening up a new restaurant, in new city, and having little food industry knowledge. Thanks Unc now show me the money!

My adult life can get so busy that I forget basic life rules. So today a status I posted 4 years ago popped up in my memories

The first memory says I will go anywhere-provided it is forward. When an entrepreneur sets out on an idea they have to be willing to risk a lot. Most won't understand the logic behind your moves. A year ago I was comfortably running a small rental car business and due to some great financial planning I'd bought a condo that would allow me to live rent free. This new vegan restaurant is so essential to urban communities, I would no doubt felt like a was missing something in my life had I made the choice to continue on a different path in my comfortable little condo.

Which leads me to the second FB memory. My spiritual relationship with the creator has never steered me wrong. The scripture above talks about imitating Christ like humility. Humility can be a hard lesson to learn. Offering compassion and tenderness to those that don't reciprocate it is the hardest thing for me, but today I will make it my business to please the creator and try to imitate the creators beautiful spirit!


This blog is entitled "Journaling the business of life. It is a way for me to easily reminiscence certain occasions and people at pivotal moments on my business journey.

The importance of cherishing your memories can help shape your character or  remembering why you started out on your new venture can aid that motivation. So kudos to Facebook for adding a little motivation to my day. Now off to get pedicures #RelaxOften #EatOrganic #LiveWell
