Which good memories are better — the recent and vivid ones, or those that time has covered in a sweet haze?
Not that I don’t appreciate the good memories that are more recent and easily recalled with details – as few and far between as they are – but it’s the older ones that are always sweeter. It usually is that way for most people. We are at heart a nostalgic race of living beings and we often yearn for those things or memories or events from our past. That’s because, since we are extremely aware of time passing by and because we know that our life is limited, as we grow older we tend to cherish & treasure the memories from our childhood and youth. It’s natural.
And while I can recall quite a few good & fun memories from the last 10 years or so, it’s the ones from 15-25 years ago that seem that much more sweet and that much more awesome and that much more fun! I’m like “Gosh I wish I could go back in time and relive that memory all over again” or “I wish I could stay in that memory bubble” – because I know I will never have it so good ever again and that’s past of my youth and my past that I will never experience again.
Time is cruel on us humans. Wish we could stop time or even slow down drastically the passing of it. We can’t, atleast our current technology does not allow us to do so. Maybe someday it will happen though I doubt it will be in my lifetime.
