.Beautiful memory box
I am often told that the reason why people have so much clutter is because they like to keep sentimental objects or souvenirs of their memories. Physical objects can help us relive certain memories by acting like reminders. Keeping mementos is alright as long as you realize that holding on to too much of the past can prohibit us from living the future. I like to limit the number of keepsakes I have by containing everything in a keepsake box, but that is not what today's post is about. Today I want you to actually use those objects and remember your memories instead of tucking them away in a box that is often forgotten.
Memories are not meant to be boxed up, you should constantly see them. That's why we keep what we keep- to remind us of happy or memorable times. It is time to unleash these memories. Much of my mementos are paper/cards/letters therefore they make the perfect tool for what I am about to suggest. Instead of stuffing happy memories into a box, I like to give them a second purpose. I like to use my paper mementos as bookmarks. Every time I open my book I remember that specific happy memory and I instantly feel better. I think this is a wonderful way to integrate the past with the present. Try it out yourself!
