Have you every replayed memories back in your mind over and over again? Do you ever tell the same story using the same words? Sometimes this can be a way of twisting the truth, for you remember only what you know and what you want to remember. It becomes your truth. All too often, we reminisce of all the good memories we once had because it makes us feel happy. In my experience, it’s better not to hold on to those memories too much because one day you’ll wake up and realise, that that was the past and things are different now. You might miss what you had – a person, an object, a pet, an old house, etc. to the point where you get caught up in the past. I try not to dwell on things because I have a tendency to over-analyse things. The mind is such a powerful tool, that you can get caught up in a world that doesn’t even exist – figments of the imagination. You don’t want to wake up one day and realise that you spent so much time thinking, rather than enjoying the moment. It’s better to look forward on the road ahead, for there are better memories to come. Having a fresh start, allows you to create those new memories. So clear your head, take a deep breath, and learn to live in the moment.
A guy out there was meant to be the love of your life, your best friend, your soul mate, the one you can tell your dreams to. He’ll brush the hair out of your eyes. Send you flowers when you least expect it. He’ll stare at you during movies, even though he paid $8 to see it. He’ll call to say goodnight or just cause he is missing you. He’ll look into your eyes and tell you, you’re the most beautiful girl in the world, and for the first time in your life, you’ll believe it. – Nicholas Sparks
As much as I hate to say it, I’m a hopeless romantic. It’s not something I like to dwell on because the ‘love bug’ can make you very sick indeed. 😉 But I couldn’t help but fall in love with this quote because it’s exactly what my heart whispers to my mind when I dream.
I don’t cry much, but there used to be a time that I did. We all bottle up feelings at some point or another. How do you vent those emotions? Crying is an intense surge of mixed emotions. It’s a way in which you don’t hurt others physically or through words you regret later on. For me, it’s a way of letting go. Crying rids the pain, so that the heart, soul, and mind is filled with less resentment, anger and frustration.
This article is beautifully written with insight that’ll make you realize that the next time you cry, “It’s ok”.
