Unplanned Happy Memories

We normally leave our ‘special moments’ to chance. Our cherished memories are usually unplanned, apart from the big occasions like our graduation or the day of our wedding.

We need to learn how to construct events on purpose that can be remembered throughout our lifetime, giving us nostalgic ammunition for our flashback gun.

Certain experiences make us feel joyful, engaged, amazed and motivated.

  1. Concerts, museums and great outings engage all our senses, making the moments stand out intensely.
  2. Breaking the routine, or the ‘script’ of life provides us with a pleasant surprise, resulting in little moments of big memories.
  3. Competing in something, like a game or a bet, raises the stakes and creates in us a rush of endorphins, making the event more entertaining and memorable.

A person does not have to win the Nobel Prize to be appreciated.

Any milestone, no matter how tiny, is a great way to ‘break the script’ and make their life memorable. Build good relationships, deepening them with little surprises of goodness and celebration.
