Living A FUNtastic Life (Part 40)

by Patrick Liew on September 25, 2011

I am a lover of nostalgic moments.

That’s why I will try not to miss out on alumni gatherings.

I love to meet old friends and look at old photographs.

I have letters that were dated more than thirty years ago.

I still find it hard to clear emails that bring back pleasant memories.

Sometimes, I like to mentally return back to events of time past, some of which would bring back a mixed bag of emotions.

An old friend, a favourite haunting ground, a song from the 1960’s, a black-and-white movie…

Memories of love, parting of ways, an old collection of beautiful items, documents that invoke happiness, acts of kindness…

I love to revisit some of these experiences. They give me immense happiness, pleasure, excitement, and even a tinge of sadness as I recall an event that was lost in time.

I’m mindful while these experiences were some of the most exciting times in my life, I will not allow them to prevent me from creating better memories in the future.

These nostalgic experiences are deposits in my emotional bank account. I can draw on them to find meaning in my existence. They can further enrich my journey of life.

They continue to invoke positive emotions and enhance my appreciation of life. They make me feel valuable and they strengthen the pride and joy in my life.

When I felt accepted and loved, I also improved my self-esteem and sense of identity.

I am in a better position to build better relationships and to develop stronger bond with the people around me.

As I write this Love Note, my mind has gradually gone back to a nostalgic moment in my life…


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.

Question: How can we build gems of nostalgia in the mines of our soul?
