Memories

Hidden
in the deep corners of our heart,

Every
moment as we breathe…

We think
of some of these!

I guess we all carry a box full of Memories with us. These get triggered
with a song, a fragrance, a taste, a touch, a book, a random mention of place or
person, a status update or just like that, don’t they? If the memories are pleasant
and happy…then do keep thinking about them…as they will bring in all the good
feelings. Then you can amplify those good feelings by taking yourself to those
beautiful memories and reliving them.

However what happens when we are reminded of an unpleasant event or
person or situation…? We sulk, we crib, we cry and the blame game and the guilt
trips begin. Just when you notice all this, immediately pull a pleasant, a
super pleasant memory
from your box. Don’t wait…the idea here is to do this
quickly
and watch as your feelings change now…easily and effortlessly!

Some situations or people would have hurt you in the past, yet we have
the complete freedom to choose the best memory, NOW! So what are you
waiting for folks…go ahead and grab some of the loving memories and keep
amplifying them…and bring in all the best feelings, NOW!

What are some of the memories closest to your heart? What makes you
Smile? What makes you feel Loved? I am eager and curious…so how about sharing
some of your thoughts in the comments, now!
 

I am taking part in the Write Tribe Festival of Words 8th -14thDecember 2013. Do hop on to the website, there are some fabulous bloggers out
there, sharing their Memories with you!

See you tomorrow with a new prompt, till then…

Have a Happy and Relaxed Sunday!

Be positive,

Be grateful,

Keep Smiling,

Love,

Gayu
