When a pleasant thing goes to memory. It comes to our minds time and again. It is pleasant to remember those moments. We wish it to happen again. We miss it. But we never wish an unpleasant event to come again in our life. We cannot forget that also.

Ping back into the memory lane is sometimes a wishful thinking!

Then maybe it is a reflection of desire which one miss or nightmare - in some other cases... Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest (ugliest?) of them all?

We tend to romanticize our recollections, hanging onto nostalgic versions of events that don't always accurately reflect our reality, but they do shed light on our hopes and dreams.

Pleasant memories live on our hearts and ripple on in small waves of contentment as we relive them

Lovely memories are embellished with time and the price is to also bring up those unpleasant memories for all is imprinted permanently. Live in the moment; create new/lovely memories.Boo hoo!

Speaking strictly of good memories here: Many people held hostage for long periods of time report using them to soften the harshness of their captivity and maintain their sanity in the process. Sometimes that’s all we have to keep us strong in unbearable situations.
