I love to scrapbook everyday stories. All that in-the-moment stuff. You'll often find me thinking about what we had to eat last night, or how much homework took up how many hours last Thursday. But you also know how much I love to look back into the past. I look back and I remember the good stuff. And now I know why. I noted this down a while back and haven't had a chance to share it yet..
That's a psychologist talking; and it makes sense to me. So let's tell a few stories. I'm suggesting "unusual souvenirs" as a theme. But of course, stories on any subject at all are more than welcome..."From our research we know that when people experience the emotion of nostalgia they have a heightened sense of positive mood, self-esteem, feelings of belonginess and a sense of meaning in life. In other words, nostalgia is good psychological medicine."
