Thanks for the Memories

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” -Dr. Seuss

This week is all about being grateful, giving thanks, and being with those we love. Even though we should be doing this every day, sometimes we need explicit reminders. We get lost in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives that we miss the moments. However, this week I am not telling you to be more mindful in the moment, since that’s often hard to remember. Instead, I’ll say this…this week, when you’re with your friends, or family – get lost in those moments. Don’t worry about being too mindful. Just enjoy them. Tell stories, laugh so hard you cry, eat so much you change into sweats (or at the very least have to take off your belt), and hug and kiss those you haven’t in awhile. Then, in a few days, weeks, or maybe even months, think back, reach out and tell them, “Thanks for the memories.”
