Just like particular scents bring memories, some memories bring scents, atmospheric sensations and smiles.
On my drive to work I was listening to a few rare Bob Marley recordings that brought wonderful memories of last year. I smiled throughout my drive. I could feel the breeze of those days at the park and nights at the beach where I had the pleasure of listening to these songs in great company. For a moment I felt the whiff of autumn and the early stages of South Florida winter. I smelled an aroma that filled my heart and had glimpses of fond moments that soothed my soul.
I’ve come to understand that we shouldn’t live in the past. And this is not the case. Eryka Badu said in a song, “Remembering is good if you don’t let it be the fear of you.” And I totally agree. If these memories bring me joy for just an instance, I will embrace them for that moment. And what a wonderful way to head to work!
I hope you all have a blessed day and/or night! ♥
