Life Is A Trail Of Memories

No Tolls On Memory Lane

The beauty of life does not always lie in the present moment. You can find the beauty in a small center within your brain called the hippocampus; the memory bank that holds your accumulated experiences. Life is a trail of memories and its beauty lies within your recollections of the past; there are no tolls on memory lane. Feel free to endlessly navigate.

One of the best ways to relax your mind and alleviate your accumulated daily stress is by putting on a nice tune that takes you mentally back to pleasant times in your past. Engaging with your trail of memories that lie within your mind is quite soothing and can make you feel happy and appreciative of life’s beautiful moments.

With good memories also come bad ones, but you don’t have to dwell on those. As a matter of fact, if your mind hasn’t already repressed them, you can voluntarily suppress them. You can do this by identifying your bad memories and no longer paying attention to them; act as if you have never experienced them in the first place.

The saying “don’t live in the past” is very true, but why not stroll down memory lane from time to time, especially if you’ve had good experiences which you can reminisce on. Memory lane is like a gift that you can endlessly enjoy; unless suffering from a neurological disorder that impacts your retrieval of memories, you can utilize this gift indefinitely.

And what can be even more pleasant is taking a stroll down memory lane with someone who you have experienced good times with in the past. Besides your version of the story, your friend, family member or acquaintance can paint an alternate version from their persecutive; their details can contribute to your memory lane.

So what are you waiting for? It’s easier than E-ZPass to hop onto memory lane. Enjoy it!
