Today is Tomorrow's Yesterday! LIVE IT !


I have this thing that annoys me. You know how some people seem to spend alot of time reminiscing about the 'good old' days.

Do you rember when......

Do you remember how we used to......

This time 20 years ago I was....

I remember when she......

Don't get me wrong, it nice to have good memories and to reflect on them now and then. But sometimes it seems to me that people live their lives up to a certain point and then somehow just stop living and instead survive on memories.

If you don't live today how will you build on the memories you already have. What will you remember about today in one year, five years, ten years time. Probably nothing.

Every day is for living, so live it. Don't loose those memories but make sure to keep adding to them

Even people who spend their days reminiscing about days that have gone are making memories.. Perhaps not as colorful and fun as the ones they're talking about, but memories nonetheless.. If not their own, then maybe they make memories for the one who's listening to their story..

The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant. ~Salvador Dali

sXy,

That's an interesting angle on reminiscing and one I hadn't thought about. You're right of course. It's not for me to tell people how to liver their lives or how to spend their days. People should do what is best for them and gives them the most fullfilment. Guess I just sometimes feel sad that some people seem to hanker after days of yore and forget to make the most of the life they still have left to live.
