I have always thought that our mind is like a pool. Simple thought, but it works this way:
Little by little and day by day, we fill that pool with memories, experiences, happenings and whatever we register every day through our senses.
Those experiences and memories are like water filling the pool of our minds.
Some of those memories will leave the pool through a natural drainage system (things we don’t even know we are forgetting), some others we manually drain with a bucket (things we consciously forget) and some other things tend to cling to the sides of the pool in the shape of mushy green stuff, and no matter how hard we try to scrub it, there it is.
Every once in a while we take a dive into that pool and swim among those memories. And I would say the older we grow, the more often we swim a few lengths ;).
I invite you to take a long long dive and feel that water. Is it a comfortable swim? Is the water clear? Is it a calm or wavy pool?
Remember that we are responsible for the content of that pool, therefore we can change what we keep adding to it every day.
What does that mean? It means that every day we should think of what we are pouring in… how is that swim going to feel when in a few years time you look back and dive in?
To ensure that enjoyable dive, make sure you are creating good memories when living your everyday life.
