Remember the good (feeling) times…

Carefree joy of a child on a carousel

Have you ever watched a child on a first carousel ride? For most it is an experience of carefree joy. Most children become quite excited upon seeing a carousel. They love the color and motion. The unique animals to ride upon. They see the other children enjoying their rides. They reach out for it. Some almost leap from their parents arms to try to get to it.

Have you ever experienced the feeling of carefree joy yourself? Take a moment to remember it. To re-experience it. That is what memories are for. Memories are not merely for useful facts and how-to’s or for warnings about what to avoid. Memories allow you to experience the good feelings in life and help you find ways to re-create them in a variety of ways.

How can you create some carefree joy in your life today?
