“Today’s special moments are tomorrow’s memories.”
Many of us have either read the story or watched the movie Aladdin. The Genie makes a comment to Aladdin and Jasmine as they are getting to know one another. He says that today’s special moments are tomorrow’s memories. It is a profound statement and one that should resonate with us all. We must remember to always stay as present and be in the moment as much as possible because it is in those moments where our memories are made.
These memories serve as the highlights of our lives and it is of utmost importance to have them be happy ones with us partaking in those special moments of the past. When we recognize the thoughts, feelings and emotions that we experience while those special moments are occurring it is then and only then when we become truly self aware. So take the time and the effort to put down that device whether it is your cell or laptop. Turn off that TV. Focus on your friends and loved ones that are with you in the here and now and make sure to start making more of those special moments so they can become tomorrow’s memories.
What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards improving your self awareness?
