Hi MaxPower 2U nation! Today we want to discuss that oh so good feeling of nostalgia. Nostalgia is that thing that we feel when we think back to many of those times in our lives when we experienced or shared great life moments.
It's very sweet to look back and remember those times because they let us reflect and appreciate how much we have lived. Looking back and reliving our past is a wonderful way to reminisce and laugh with our friends or just sit back and smile about them by ourselves.
As with all other things in life, mediation is the best approach. And it's no different with nostalgia. When you frequently think back to so many of your wonderful experiences it can turn in to a detriment by becoming a mental barrier. We all look back to the things we have done, but if that becomes what your mind becomes fixated on it will make it difficult for you to create new and just as meaningful experiences.
Just as you are what you eat, your mind is what you think about. If you are constantly thinking about how things used to be and how the tastes, smells and feelings don't compare to your life now, then when the opportunity for great experiences present themselves you will not be in the right state mind to let them happen.
Nostalgia is a wonderful thing that we should all use to bring smiles and joy to our lives, but it will also hold you back if you use it to forget about your current life situation. It should be used a tool to brighten and lift up your life, but be careful and don't get stuck in it.
So embrace and continue to look back and enjoy your greatest moments with your friends and family, just remember to not let that nostalgic feeling become your crutch instead.
With that said,
"Put a little MaxPower in your life!"
