Sharing old memories with loved ones is always full of laughs, but making new “Smile Moments” is important for future holiday seasons.
“Life is a beautiful collage of priceless moments and memories, which when pieced all together creates a unique treasured masterpiece.” – Melanie M. Koulouris
I was thinking about the holiday season over the last awhile, anticipating time with family, and I started thinking about “Smile Moments”. It seems like whenever the family spends time together over the holidays and you haven’t seen each other for awhile, what inevitably seems to happen over turkey dinner is someone starts the conversation with this: “Hey, remember that time when…” This is usually a funny story, and laughter follows with the memory. That spurs on others to say, “And then there was that time…” More laughter, and more memories follow with everyone sharing their favorites!
Those are what I call Smile Moments — we look back at our lives, but it’s not like watching a movie, its like we remember scenes, or clips. We don’t remember those moments of happiness as the whole novel, but the short stories. Some might even equate it with a patchwork quilt, with each memory a unique patch, but connected to the memories around it.
TIP: This article by Elemental dives into “The Power Of Positive Memories” and the science behind how these positive memories help protect us against stress and depression.
Take the time over the holiday season not only to remember those Smile Moments, but to create new ones so that in 2, maybe 5 or 10 years down the road, you can look back on this time and remember those great moments and smile!
