MEMORY AND HOPE

What strange thing is memory, and hope, one looks backward, the other forward.  One is of today, the other of tomorrow.  Memory is history recorded in our brain.  Memory is a painter, it paints pictures of the past and of the day.  ~~ Grandma Moses ~

As children, remembering things seemed to be so easy and effortless. We never thought twice about the process of remembering and learning. As we grow older, we tend to sabotage our memory process with the simple act of not paying attention or concentrating on what is going on around us. We forget to pay attention to details of what we are experiencing. Attention is the needle that cuts the grooves in the record of memory cells.

Our memory can be influenced by many different factors. A smell can trigger a memory, as it associates a scent with a certain event. Our working memory is where we note information from the world around us. The art of visualization is important in developing memory. Some of the information we keep, some we discard. Good memories last longer than bad, helping to keep the human race happy and strong. If you limit your memory, you limit your life. Never forget all the good things you have experienced.

Let our memory always keep in our hearts, the loves and relationships that we knew and the blessing we shared with those we remember.  Let our memory keep in our thoughts, what made these good people so precious to us.  The power of our memory is our hope for tomorrow.  Follow us at www.mysticaltalk.com as we take our journey to wellness.
