> I know we don’t all have great memories of the past. But here it seems to be talking about the good memories we have and how they came to be good memories. How did we remember them in the way we did. It might have been a day at the beach with your lover, or a great time at the amusement park with your child or parent. You look back and forget the heat of that day but remember the fun. You might forget the hassle of finding parking but remember the beautiful fresh salt air breeze of the beach.
Can you see the ‘perfect’ in the ‘present’? Can you focus on that. Not the crowded elevator trip, but the great smile of the receptionist. Not the wait to get your lunch, but the restful moment of relaxation that comes after you sit down.
It is a choice about what you pay attention to and what you focus on.
