Remember Me
Part One


By Nicola Dela-Croix



Hello! And welcome to Part One of Remember Me – a unique course for unique people. Over six different stages you’ll be capturing the story of your life in words, images and music, recognising your achievements, celebrating your uniqueness, looking at plans for the future and appreciating your precious place in the world and in the lives of others.  An uplifting and meaningful journey in itself, enjoyed at your own pace, and all the more satisfying as the information you gather here plays a crucial role in Part Two as we put together a celebration of your life. So, whenever you are ready, come on in…


Part One:  Your Life Story

We all have our own story to tell, and we begin by drawing an outline of your unique life so far – where you’ve come from, where you are now and all the events and experiences in-between. There are also ideas for how to capture your story and inspiration from the life stories of others. 


Part Two:  Your Relationships

You’ve not been alone in your story and Part Two is all about the people who have shared in the journey of your life, lived alongside you, and how meaningful they have been. Plus the significance of ancestors and the people keeping our memory alive in the future.


Part Three:  Memorable Moments

We look at the good, the proud, the challenging, and the eventful moments in your life that have been memorable to you. We reflect on why they mattered, what their impact has been, what you’ve learnt from them and reflect on other eventful lives.


Part Four:  Music and Mementos

What music has featured in the soundtrack to your life? What photographs have best captured you and your story? What prized possessions could you never be parted from?  We’ll look at these all-important collections in Section Four and how they fit into the story of your life.

Part Five:  The Unique You

You are a one-off, never-to-be-repeated individual. And that incredible fact is something to celebrate. So here we look at what sets you apart, from how you look and behave to your personality, qualities and values. We get an outside perspective and look at which unique individuals have inspired you. 

Part Six:  Onward Journeys

In our final part we highlight what this journey through your life story has uncovered, what you’ve learnt from it and how you might like to share that wisdom. We look ahead to the years to come and focus on what you’d like to do more of, and end with some positive thoughts to see you on your way.
