30 Days of Being a Love Machine: Day 13
Day 13 Challenge:
Call/text a loved one to reminisce about a moment/inside joke that sealed your bond.
“Remember that one time…” True that living in the moment is the best way to go. Some say “never look back” and “don’t live in the past.” This is inherently true.
Double edged sword - the majority of living things has a memory - I mean, like fo’ real; they’ve identified plants that have reactions and are testing them now. So, it’s hard to leave all those memories we’ve created behind. The key is to focus on the positive aspects of those memories, helping us feel good while moving forward.
Gatherings with family and friends is always better when you can laugh about the past. For this one, try to make it a memory/inside joke where everyone was laughing at or was fond of.
Think of a memory or inside joke from the past that solidified a friendship, partnership, or familial bond. Text or talk about it. Have a gut busting LOL or indulge in an ear-to-ear smile.
Let’s revive that feeling. “Nostalgia is the warm, fuzzy emotion that we feel when we think about fond memories from our past,” says Jeanette Leardi. Our goal is to invoke that feeling from our heart space and share it with another so that we feel enveloped in love. So, gets the lovin,’ find solace in those memories, and share them with your loved one.
