Memories

My darling Pari,

Memories have a magical, dreamy effect on us. No-matter what our current mood maybe, they have the power to transport us to a time when we were doing something memorable. Did we realize the importance of our actions then? Not in the least. The same way, each day, every act of ours is also creating fond memories, something we’ll cherish and value long after the moment has gone.

This means, every moment of our life is important, for it’s a new line in our book of life. Even now, while I am trying to collect my thoughts and writing it for you to read many years down the line, I am actually creating memories of our times together. It isn’t the philosophical way of looking at life, but a way of realizing the true value of the little gifts life gives us from time to time.

You’ll often read, live life as if today was your last day. It’s tough to not panic with such a thought than to try to live those  1440 minutes in a meaningful way. But, I have actually seen death and even experienced being resuscitated not long back . It was that traumatic experience, that made me value my life more than I ever did. I strongly believe, God gifted me a second life with a purpose. I do not credit it to my good Karma but to the heap of unfulfilled responsibilities I had at that point of time.

I am just trying to fulfill my responsibilities by planning non-stop and working on those plans to make your future secure. In turn, gifting myself the reward of beautiful moments we both create together. Be it the fun we have splashing away like little fish while bathing in the tub, the moments when you try to fight back sleep and get cranky, moments when you hurt yourself and cry out loud, only to forget all about it within a matter of seconds all are going to be beautiful memories we both will cherish all our lives. They appear routine today, but will be priceless tomorrow.

The same way, the times your father and I spent together are memories that’ll be a part of me forever. I don’t want to deny their existence, nor do I force myself trying to forget them. They are beautiful in their own way. They are a reminder of the smiles I shared with someone who brought you in my life. The secret to a happy life lies in this very fact.

Never challenge your memories. They like being respected and resist being deleted. Treat them well and they’ll promise to never haunt you! ~My Era

Let’s busy ourselves creating more memories, while I promise to make you a part of mine when you’ll grow big enough to understand them clearly.

With tons of love and blessings,

Mum

  1. The issue is – bad memories also keep following us, like the good ones. And the mind has the need to revisit bad memories also, at times! Anyways, the presence of good memories make having bad memories, worth it! I admire people who can forgive and forget.

    Memories aren’t computers or people. You know no matter how you treat them, they have a way of coming back at unwanted and unexpected times like the promotional call. And the song is one of my favorites. 🙂
