Memories are an important part of how we come to understand our world and our path. Our memories hold our past experiences and what we’ve gleaned from them. They are the touchstones for the running story of our lives that we have in our minds.
With such an important place in our lives it is important that we mind our memories. We should remember to remember. We should take the time to hold memories, process them, reflect on them, discern their effect on our lives.
None of this happens quickly, and we are often distracted from this work. Take the time. It’s important work. So that our memories may be reconciled, too, and nothing may be left undone.
