N is for Nostaglia ~ April 16, 2018

Aaaah yes.  The good old days. Glorious bastards!

I have to ask myself though, were the good old days really that good?

And as I wait for your gifts of feedback, here are my two cents worth zilch after inflation is applied.  I believe nostalgia puts a twist on everything and my feelings are more revisionist history.  Re-painting the scene as something better than first experienced.  Not that the past is all bad.  Things were at times sweet and sentimental.  It is just that well … it is just that the past is gone.

I re-paint my memories a lot y’all.  It’s called denial.  And De-Nile isn’t a river in Egypt.  Are you using humor to deflect yet again J-Dub?  Your modus-operandi is tired and worn out girl.  Get some new shtick.

They say you can’t go home again.  I think “they” may be onto something.  Instead I am content to be present and fully live in the here and now.

Next is the interactive part.  Let me know your thoughts.  My comments section is lonely and open for business.  Mind outta the gutter people.  Lol.

As always, more to come.

  1. We do have a tendency to color our memories, don’t we? My mom died when I was 15 and there are so many things I would like to ask her — to see if I have remembered correctly. Actually, she would probably have colored her memories, too!

  2. Want to take a time travel back to Nostalgia Land? Put on some music, and the song will take you right back to the time and experience you remember from long ago. Funny how that works, but really cool, too. 🙂

  3. Yes, we sometimes “remember” things differently than they actually were, putting a better (or worse) spin on them than perhaps actually occurred. Since I am in the “memory making” business, I try to help people capture the real. Nice “N”!

      1. LOL – I am a new Creative Memories consultant and a scrapbooker. Making memories to me is helping people put their photos together to preserve the nostalgia!

      2. How wonderful!! There is definitely a place for nostalgia – my emotions are mixed about my own nostalgia but then that is always the case :).

  4. I agree! Our memories shift everything. As a mom, it is frustrating to watch my kids memories warp in favor of not-the-best-version of me (while mine probably warps in the other direction.) And sometimes I really wish my mom was still around to ask “What really happened?” when my own memory is obviously full of holes! Melanie’s Stories

    1. yes I can relate. I wish my mom was still around to ask too. But they I wonder if her memories would have the same holes. We are all so different. My brother and I have completely different memories of the camping trips our family took as kids. I think they were awesome, he says everything went wrong. Go figure.
