Memories are like little time capsule vestibules. They bury themselves within the neurons of your brain space laying silently until awakened by unplanned moments.
The moments that occur do not realize that they are effecting you. The moments are just taking place and going on about their day. They are completely unaware of any experiences in your life that internally are being set off like a million bursting fireworks. Little explosions that you feel surging up, releasing and then raining down on your insides like a fire burning up a mountainside.
Sometimes, sometimes you wish these moments did not occur. The feels that can be associated with them can feel heavy like an over-sized coat of suited armor. The tears you wish to cry do not always find their way to the surface, but instead, surge through your being like a flooding river washing away the bank.
As much as the feels can be heavy, and as much as the feels can feel draining on your being – feel them anyway. Feel them for all that they remind you of. The humans you are missing, the risk(s) you did not take, the things in life you allow to be barriers to following your heart song. Feel them – honor yourself and the memory. Remind yourself that you are among the breathing and that you have the ability to make today what you wish. The wish does not have to be grand. It can be as simple as taking a walk and gazing at the stars. What is your wish for today?
