“Tra La La I Gaily Sing Because It’s Spring, Because It’s Spring!”
This was the line I had in my 3rd grade school play – my very first time on stage. I can recall the excitement of saying those words as I carried my basket of plastic flowers, skipping along, so proud in my new dress.
I was so happy my Mom bought me the perfect dress- sleeveless, tiny blue and white checks, with a fold over boat neckline and 3 rows of ruffles on the bottom!
How did she find such a perfect dress? I was on top of the world.
As I enjoy this memory, I wonder how it is possible to recall every moment?
I do not have any photos, I never wrote it down, it just seemed to appear.
What triggered this memory?
Could it be that spring was officially a day away?
How often do random thoughts pop into our mind, along with feelings, emotions and all that comes along?
How often do we realize the significance of these random thoughts and connect the feelings that come along with them?
We may not pay any attention at all to those thoughts or recognize the connection.
We may decide that feeling we are claiming is what we are – when in fact it could be a memory triggered by a sound, a scent, a song, a color, a situation that feels so familiar.
How about this?
The next time you get a random thought, pause, notice how it feels and what memory comes to mind.
Some we may love, some not so much, but whatever message we receive is an opportunity to embrace all of who we are and have the potential to be.
Embrace the joy, heal the hurt.
First, we must notice, then the journey begins.
I would love to hear your random thoughts.
