Remembering pleasant memories always changes or rewires our brain. Well, that is how I would like to believe and that is what I have experienced. As general human nature it is innate in us to remember the negativities and I'm not saying or claiming I am any different. However, trying to remember the pleasant moments are always a good way to keep reinforcing that goodness. I was jotting down the pleasant moments this past week. It made me smile as I thought about these small little things that make us smile. I also had a discussion with a couple of grad school friends with whom we discussed the happy moments. We found that these simple moments were making each of us smile. It could be a pet jumping up with joy as soon as you enter the room, or it could be your own child who smiles at you, or another little kid who is excited talking to you, or may be your loved on giving you a big bear hug. The ideas are endless and limitless. It is not that we yearn for that acceptance, but then the belief is that you are important and the warm feeling that goes through your body makes you feel very different and 'alive'. So, may be try and remember every little pleasant event or happy moment and record it in some form. It will help us all be much better. It is hard but not impossible:)
More to happiness.
