Life gives us brief moments with another...but sometimes in those brief moments we get memories that last a lifetime. ~ Author Unknown
A moment lasts all of a second, but the memory lives on forever. ~ Author Unknown
Gratitude is when memory is stored in the heart and not in the mind. ~ Lionel Hampton
What will you remember of 2010?
Memories get trapped in our psyche and can determine our current and future mental, emotional and spiritual well being. Those memories will determine our future actions and conversations.
Most of us are not capable of remembering the events of our lives without adding our story or interpretation of those events. Life happens and we make up a story. That story now becomes what we remember about the event and it goes on to shape and determine how we interact with that life situation. In other words, our interpretation either enhances or diminishes possibilities. As long as we hold that interpretation to be true, the emotions, moods, beliefs, fears and judgments that are born out of that interpretation continue to filter how we see that part of our life. This can often be very limiting. Your interpretation is not the only interpretation available to you. It is the one you are choosing!
I would suspect that the story you tell and the memories you have stem more from what you have learned, practiced or have been taught rather than the actual event. Be careful what you practice, you might get good at it.
What did you practice in 2010? How did that shape your interpretation of yourself, others and your possibilities or options?
Did you practice only seeing the negative in yourself or others?
Did you practice resentment, anger and unforgiveness?
Did you practice having to be right?
Did you practice needing to be in control?
Did you practice isolation and withdrawal?
Did you practice not trusting yourself or others?
Did you practice self-sabotage?
How would the memories of yourself, others and situations be transformed if you were to intentionally remember?
