Some people say ‘Memories get weaker and fade away as distance increases’. Sometimes the opposite in true, ‘Memories get stronger and come back to life as distance decreases’.
I found it easier to not miss my family when I was seven seas apart. I’m finding it difficult when I am two hours away! That’s life.
I think I am forgetting my previous post. I am here to create happy memories and share happy moments. That’s the goal.
Isn’t it strange that at times we feel, we can not live without some people and at other times, we feel ‘Oh sure we can’ and we keep switching, trying to keep ourselves strong.
Memories are a reflection of time – the journeys we undertook, the smiles and laughter, the emotions and tears. Memories are the only possession you have about your past, because the past is long gone!
Memories are in no way directly or inversely proportional to distance. They get stronger when you get weaker and they get weaker when you get stronger – and by stronger I just mean practical, realistic and to some point unconcerned.
Distance makes you helpless and slowly our mind accepts the situation and we find happiness in our surroundings.
Physical distance can never distance you from your loved ones. That’s a bond that is formed during childhood and can never be shaken.
Bonds of the heart and stronger than bonds of the practical mind.
It’s true that people who are more practical, real and live for the present moment do not feel as much and maybe have long forgotten memories trapped somewhere in their mind. They are not better or worse than those who are emotional. It’s just a perception. It’s just what your heart and mind open up to!
Our heart has the power to reduce the distance between us and our memories.
Our mind on the other hand has the power to increase the distance between us and our memories.
Maybe that’s why balance of heart and mind is essential! Not sure if anyone can ever get perfect at this! 🙂 We live with the imbalance. 🙂
