It is remarkable how well we remember those special events that have occurred throughout our lives. Some events may have affected us so deeply that we have changed direction in our thinking or have perhaps turned our lives upside down.
Reminiscing is a natural occurrence and as we grow older, the more we reflect on the past. How often have we said “that reminds me of …….” in order to recapture experiences.
We all live in the present, yet we still carry our past selves with us throughout our lives. We are part of a rich history that needs to be shared and preserved. The stories we tell about our lives are also important sources of self-identity that enable us to explore and relate our past to the present.
