I always keep memories. I’m counting good ones but sometimes, I get lost with bad ones. Keeping memories can’t be relative, like picking only the good ones and discarding the bad ones. Memories aren’t always good, sad ones can get you in the way to burden you go on with tomorrow.
Like if a father has forgotten to fetch her 6 years old kid on the time the little girl expected, it would mark her memory. It can develop her character to be bitter or better.What happens in a day can be a memory, a memory that can make or break us.
A great memory is fine, but the ability to forget is a true test of greatness, I once read. How could we possibly forget when it is already a memory – this unless we become on a state of amnesia, we can’t ignore thoughts to outpour on our wake minds. As stated, it is a great thing to forget – that is, to leave your bad memories behind, forgiving those who have hurt you.
Memory is recognizing previous experiences. Like when this girl grow up, had to wait for someone who promised to be there for her on time, a good old memory of her on a corner sitting, crying, waiting for her father would hit her. Recognizing the pain it brought her fragile heart. She doesn’t have the choice of those memories, but she has now the choice how react on the situation. Would she sit and cry out of hurt or learn a good lesson?
We are surrounded by people who share our lives, intertwined with a lot more people sharing intertwined memories, either good or bad. A really small world.
But broaden your horizons, think it positively, stay inside the good lines. Life is too short to live in the past. To live in memories.
Here’s what Apostle Paul has to share about what to think:
Philippians 4:8 (NIV)
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Now, that’s creative. Think about such things!
