Eric closed his eyes as he rubbed his temples for what seemed likerepparttar twentieth time that hour. His life lately resembled an episode from a daytime soap opera rather than reality. A thought entered his crowded consciousness: "What is it about me that I can not have a quiet, calm, uninterrupted life?"

Sheila discussedrepparttar 124045 twists and turns throughrepparttar 124046 past decade with her new friend, Danelle, over a Mocha Java at her neighborhood coffee house. The aroma of baking bread filledrepparttar 124047 room as her hands gestured with her eyes wide. Her hearty laugh rose through repparttar 124048 room. Danelle stated simply, "Your life has been anything but dull! How do you do it?"

Sheila paused as she allowed her warm drink to fill her throat and chest. Looking contemplative, she softly said, "I would not have it any other way."

Eric Hoffer, twentieth century American social theorist said, "The remarkable thing is that it isrepparttar 124049 crowded life that is most easily remembered. A life full of turns, achievements, disappointments, surprises, and crises is a life full of landmarks. The empty life has even its few details blurred, and cannot be remembered with certainty."

Here is how to maximize your landmark experiences:
