ramblings on remembering

Remember

Remember to remember

take time to go back, celebrate, cry

take time to look at pictures, feel nostalgic, and lean into the past

Remember

Remembering is an art form

it is powerful

When we remember, we pause. We see what story formed us

for good

for not so good

When we remember, we choose to move on

or to belong

We see where we failed

and succeeded

We see where we were celebrated

or lied to

When we remember, we see

We see the story we find ourselves in

We see the characters who too played a role along our side

We see that from which we’ve over come

and we see that

that continues to hold us victim to its power

When we remember

we lay the past aside and we choose to step out of memory

and into the present.

Remembering

is a gift

Remember

Celebrate

Cry

Mourn

Rejoice

Sing

and

Step

out of memory

and into today, where you will create a new memory

to remember

tomorrow
