Sometimes I feel like I have a replay button in my brain!
There are times where its a gift and times where its a curse.
I can replay so many amazing moments I lived and immerse myself in them as if they were happening again. It’s actually pretty amazing to be able to more or less relive some of my best moments simply in my mind. At times, I close my eyes or stare out at this great big world and replay some of my favorite moments. I replay some great laughs, I replay unique moments that made me feel so alive and so lucky to be able to live, I replay moments with the people I love and cherish, I replay romantic moments with my prince charming, I replay things like my beautiful sister walking down the aisle, I replay some of my favorite teaching moments, I even press replay on my favorite childhood memories!
However replaying is also a curse as its sometimes replays difficult moments. Reliving something that brought hurt and sorrow is definitely not agreeable nor healthy but it happens to me at times. So I decided to look at it this way…So much wallows in our memory but our minds also have limited spacing & so even when I relive difficult times I will try and use them positively; as a reminder of what not to do! If I were to replay only the best moments I may not appreciate them as much. The good should wallow and stay forever in your mind and heart, but the bad should filter and keep reminders to avoid repeating the same mistakes.
In life we do things. Some we wish we could take back. Some we wish we could replay a million times in our heads. But they all make us who we are and shape every detail about us. If we were to reverse any of them we wouldn’t be the person we are nor have learned from our previous actions. Live, have wonderful memories, make mistakes and press replay to learn from them and be even better. Well… also press replay to replay happiness!
