Our memories are personal to us that no-one can take away from us. It’s only if we lose the ability to recall the past that those memories are no longer ours to be revisited over and over again.
The things we remember from the past (our memories) are the things which we have experienced in our lives, that have had an impact, good or bad on us. So treasure those memories good and bad because each of them have taught you something about yourself, and helped you grow into the person you are today.
Yes, the good memories make us happy when we recall them, and while the bad memories may being sadness, they have each taught you something about yourself, and helped you grow into the person you are today. Memories are important to us as are what life lessons are made from.
But what if you feel your today brings you no happiness or hope, so you live only by remembering your past, your memories, of happier times. What then happens when you have no more happy memories to recall?
So remember your present will become your past very soon. So live your live today wholeheartedly, because one day, today will only be a memory to you, so try your best to make it a happy one!
