The Gift of Memory

Dr. Foster Mobley // Quotables, Wisdom Leading

The holidays, while joyous on many levels can be a difficult time for many. Nestled deeply in holiday traditions are memories, some good, some not, but powerful nonetheless. These memories are capable of triggering great joy and deep pain, connectedness and loneliness. This is the ultimate irony - this season is generally the time of the greatest connection with family and the season of highest depression rates. As we try to find the perfect gifts for colleagues, friends and family let's not forget about giving the gift of memory. Try sharing one of your favorite memories with someone you know can appreciate it. You'll give yourself a gift as well: letting your mind go back to a time that just might have shaped who you've become, or that brought you joy that you've never forgotten. A joyous and safe holiday to you and yours.
