Cycling through memories

Each day, as we ride along the paths of our lives, we cross highways of experiences. Some of them fade away in the horizon of our past while others remain forever etched in our minds. They are like strokes on the canvas of a painting, a sketch in the workshop of our memories.

Our feelings are the colors we use to paint these memories. They are filled with joy, sadness, fear, or love, giving them depth and a personal touch. That is why sometimes, when we reminisce, we also begin to feel those emotions all over again.

At the core of this incredibly complex device that is our brain, memories are formed, stored and retrieved, as if they were paintings in a limitless museum. Every experience we live through leaves an everlasting mark in our minds. A unique trace of what we have just lived and felt. In its essence, a memory is a symphony of connections between neurons, a familiar path in the thickets of our mind that we have traveled before. 

Some memories are mountains to climb, moments of struggle and endurance that push us to reach our breaking point. Others are moments of pure joy and freedom that let us soar into the past. But regardless of the surface we ride on, every pedal stroke, every experience, every memory, becomes part of our journey. They all play a part in making us who we are. Memories and emotions are links in the chain of our life. They are also the GPS that guides us on our journey. After all, it’s not just about the goals we reach, but the memories we create, the feelings we experience and the lives we touch along the way.
