If you remember your childhood, you will remember the time you were scolded and the times you had fun.
The in-between parts get lost.Memories are funny things. You recollect the ones which are special or terrifying. But what if you could bookmark or pin your memories?Like the pinned tweet or Fb post?
Would it help to have a bookmarking or pinning option in the brain?
Do you have one? Do you have a way to recall and enjoy those summer holiday memories?
What about the winter picnic and visit to the zoo? Do you take those memories out, dust them and cherish them like the jewels in your locker? Few of us do. But when I spend a lazy afternoon with my daughter creating a colorful chart or decorating the cake I hope she will bookmark this memory.
When she spends time making hundreds of cards for her friends, I hope she will remember this joy of making your own cards to gift. Children learn all the good things and the bad things from you first. As the adult in the relationship, you will need to know what’s right and what’s not. As an adult, you need to recall the good things you learn, the frameworks that worked and do the right thing.
But is it that simple?
A few days back my daughter woke up scared.It was a nightmare. The next night she was apprehensive while going to sleep.
I told her.
Plan the dream you want to see in your brain and pin it inside your head. Then go to sleep.
My six year old understands this language and didn’t complain of another nightmare after that.
Why this was important is, I was having disturbed sleep for a few days. While giving her this dose of mommy wisdom, I recalled exactly how I used to sleep well even during stressful exams. I am sleeping better now.
It’s in the mommy wisdom mode that some of my favorite posts have bloomed. Like the Superwoman post and writing a letter to the universe. They were fun topics to write about and things I believed in. That’s why your brain needs a thought processer, a bookmarking system. Till then I am writing it down on the blog. What children learn has a lot to do with you. Give yourself loads of love.
Have a wonderful middle of the week. Comment below to let me know whether you would like to bookmark your brain?
